Burned by Radio Shack, Research In Motion & More

They looked like hot stocks. So how are the traders playing Radio Shack, Research In Motion and more now that they’ve been burned?

Guy Adami

On July 1st the Negotiator did not think a company ranked among the top brass despite being awarded a big army contract. At the time he said, “Oshkosh was a $4 stock in March and its $18 now. I would be taking quick profits in this. Quickly!”

Unfortunately Adami got out just when he should have been getting in. Since he said to sell, shares have soared an additional 15%. So, what does he have to say for himself?

It's hard for me to embrace this stock, Adami says. I just can't chase it but clearly I got out way too early.

Joe Terranova

On June 16th the Liquidator made an important call about a smartpohone maker. At the time he said, “I like RIMM . If it goes down to about $75. $76 - I think that's where you step in, you've got to buy it.”

Unfortunately this is one call that was better left unanswered. Since he said to get long shares are down around 20%. So what does he have to say for himself now?

The pullback caught me off guard, admits Terranova. But I'm still a buyer.

Karen Finerman

On June 4th the Chairwoman thought Radio Shack contained the right components to build a strong trade. At the time she said, “The balance sheet is in good shape and with the introduction of the new Pre phone, they have a good relationship with Sprint, and this could be a good catalyst for Radioshack.”

Unfortunately what Karen Finerman assembled didn’t work at all. Since she said to get long, shares have slipped around 12%. So what does she have to say for herself, now?

I thought it was a less risky way to play the Palm Pre, explains Karen Finerman. But I was wrong.

Tim Seymour

On July 1st the Ambassador suggested a long position in General Electric, the parent company of CNBC. At the time he said, “GE's is as well positioned as anybody. I think it looks attractive here, and I think it has underperformed.”

Unfortunately for Seymour since he said to establish a long position, shares pulled back an addition 8%. So what does he have to say for himself, now?

I'm still a big believer in infrastructure, says Seymour.
