Our traders are good but you knew that. Check out their latest picks that paid in a feature we call “Quicker Than The Ticker.”

Joe Terranova

On April 3rd the Liquidator placed his chips on a “Wynn-ing” casino and said, “Over the last 8 weeks, Wynn has been among the most heavily shorted stocks. You are seeing now shorts running for cover. I think Wynn has got more room to go.”

Looks like Terranova hit the jackpot with this casino stock. Shares are up 12% since his long call.

Pete Najarian

On April 13th the Pit Boss cooked up a chemicals play. At the time he recommended longAshland, “a chemical name that continues to participate on the upside because they are more diverse and because they've absolutely been slaughtered.”

Looks like this stock had a nice reaction in Najarian’s portfolio. Share’s jumped 18% since his buy recommendation.

Zach Karabell

On April 8th the Academic bet that a consumer comeback would bode well for a tech name. At the time he suggested a long position in Research In Motion because, “RIMM is both consumer and business oriented, so the fact that you are seeing some strength return into consumer spending could benefit this tech company.”

The Academic came up with one smart play. Shares of RIMM jumped 8% since Karabell’s long call.

Tim Seymour

On April 7th the Ambassador suggested going overseas for a slice of the world’s largest steel maker, ArcelorMittal . At the time he said, “I like the stock here, it’s had a pretty healthy pullback, but its still above its 50 day moving average. ”

The Ambassador built a solid trade with this steel play; shares jumped 22 percent since his long call.

Now that’s Fast Money.
