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 May 1st the Liquidator found not one but two nat gas names that really caught on fire. At the time he said, “Apache and EOG Resources -- go with those two names.”

Turns out Terranova trade was full of hot air – in a good way! Since his long call shares of Apache jumped 9% while EOG soared 11% both on improved production outlooks.

Guy Adami

On April 29th the Negotiator filled the hole in his portfolio with The Gap. He said, “It’s a company whose comps are awful, yet inventories are down and they are running their business better. This is a stock that’s poised.”

Adami’s trade is looking pretty spiffy. Since his long call, shares of the Gap jumped 13% on better than expected same store sales.

Karen Finerman

On April 20th the Chairwoman drilled down for profits with an oil services trade. At the time she said, “The OIH , which is an oil field services ETF, I like that space a lot. I would add, absolutely I would add.”

Finerman’s trade was pretty slick. After her long call, the ETF jumped 18% with investors finding value in the sector.

Jeff Macke

On April 6th the Wolf hopped on the Wells Fargo wagon. At the time he said, “I'm a buyer of Wells Fargo. You have to be brainless to be short them because shorts have the government fighting against them every step of the way.”

The Wells Fargo wagon was certainly a comin’ for Macke. Since his long call shares have charged 50% higher now that stress test results have removed uncertainty from the equation.
