Following are the “Fast & Furious” trades - how should you game the key questions into the close?
CRUDE CONUNDRUM: With oil heading higher Monday should you buy?
Yes, I think you do, counsels Fast Money trader Joe Terranova. Don’t get in the way of the headlines.
CONVICTION BUY: Shares of Bank of America soared higher after Goldman Sachs placed it on the conviction buy list. Should you get in?
I’d be a moderate buyer, counsels Jared Levy of Peak6 Investments. I’d use an out of the money put spread – preferably $1 out of the money in June.
HOME DEPOT VS LOWE’S:Home Depot reports earnings Tuesday; should you buy on the back of Lowe's strength today?
That's yesterday's trade. Instead I’d be a seller if the stock pops on an earnings beat, counsels Dan Fitzpatrick of StockMarketMentor.com.
TECH TITAN COULD MOVE MARKET:Hewlett Packard reports earnings Tuesday; should you get in today?
No, I don’t think so, counsels Mike Khow of Cantor Fitzgerald. I’m seeing a lot of bearish activity in this stock.
