On May 11th the Pit Boss was led astray by options action in Applied Materials. At the time he said, “there’s a lot of put buying that’s been going on -- probably not as speculation but protection. There could be more upside.

Turns out, Najarian got his signals crossed. Since he forecast upside the stock slid 9% lower. What does Najarian have to say for himself?

"I was wrong," he sobs.

Joe Terranova

Ahead of earnings, the Liquidator suggested building a position in a home builder. At the time he said, “I see a $30 price target. Home Depot is a buy.

Earlier this month the Ambassador suggested going overseas for an auto play. At the time he said, “Toyota looks like it could run.

But if you took a long position on May 7th then this trade was plain out of gas. Since that time, shares of Toyota have tumbled about 9%. What does Seymour have to say for himself?

"It's an export story. If the yen continues to strengthen it's going to be a problem for Toyota," he explains. "However if the yen gets weaker I like the stock."
