Pete The Builder

The Pit Boss is breaking ground on an engineering trade largely due to surprisingly strong results from two large firms.

URS Corp.

URS Corp, a provider of engineering, construction and technical services, reported a 53 percent jump in first-quarter income as revenue in all its business units rose. The company also reaffirmed its full-year earnings forecast.

Fluor Corp.

Engineering and construction company Fluor Corp reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings last Monday due to strong demand from the oil and gas industries and the U.S. government.

Fluor's net earnings rose 50 percent to $205 million, or $1.12 per share, topping analysts' average estimate of 93 cents a share, according to Reuters Estimates.

What’s the trade?

I like the space across the board, counsels Pete Najarian, and I think you should keep an eye on the stocks mentioned above as well as Siemen's , Foster-Wheeler and more.

I like Flowserve, adds Karen Finerman.

Or keep an eye on McDermott, adds Tim Seymour.
