Our traders are good - but you knew that! Check out their latest picks that paid.

Pete Najarian

On July 23rd the Pit Boss found an unlikely solar play in a silicon stock. At the time he said, “Let me tell you something, Applied Materials jumped into this field a couple of years ago, and they've already sold $3 billion worth of solar products. So they're ahead of the game. They projected in two years solar will be 20%-30% of their revenue stream, so that’s why Applied Materials is pretty interesting.”

Things are looking pretty sunny for Najarian. Shares of Applied Materials are up 10% since the call with demand at the company’s alternative energy division leading to a higher forecast.

Joe Terranova

On July 15th the Liquidator sensed a BlackBerry bounce was in the cards. At the time he said, “I, myself, I bought Research In Motion today. Down at $102, $103 I'll take it.”

Looks like Terranova is as smart as his smartphone. Shares of RIMM ripped 24% higher since he said to “buy.”

Karen Finerman

On August 5th the Chairwoman proved love is lovelier the second time around. At the time she said, “I’m going back to my old love, Flowserve. It was a little overdone on the earnings, which I thought were fantastic, but it caught up with the momentum swing. I love Flowserve.”

Oh happy ending! Buyers flooded into shares of the pump and vale maker sending the stock 9% higher since the call.

Guy Adami

On August 5th the Negotiator recommended a little protection. At the time he said, “Look at Church & Dwight. The stock has been "el fuego!" I still like CHD.”

Turns out the maker of Trojan condoms proved to be your best defense against a bear market. Shares climbed 10% since Adami’s call.

Now that’s “Fast Money.”
