The Latest Picks That Paid - Friday August 28th

Our traders are good but you knew that. Check out their latest picks that paid in a regular feature we call “Quicker Than The Ticker.”

Steve Grasso

On May 27th the Governor discovered an oil services trade that hit paydirt. “I think Oxydental will be going up,” he said at the time.

Looks like Grasso’s energy trade powered his portfolio higher. Crude has rallied 16% since his call pushing shares of Occidental Petroleum up even higher.

Guy Adami

On July 10th the Negotiator turned to his PC for a trade. “Look at Dell. Credit Suisse raised numbers for Dell today,” he said. “Also Bernstein talks about a PC upgrade cycle and Dell would be the big winner from that. Dell here is, to me, it's pretty interesting.”

This kind of tech talk isn't hard to understand. The PC maker has run up 25% since Adami’s analysis.

Joe Terranova

On August 3rd the Liquidator suggested the ‘cash for clunker’ bounce was about to make some stocks go splat. “Guess what Ford did intraday? It went down,” he said. “That tells you its time to get off this Ford trade and move to the sidelines.”

Terranova was right; Ford ran out of gas. As the government program came to a close the stock sank 8%.

Jon Najarian

On August 3rd the Monster hit the jackpot with MGM. “Rooms are filling up,” he said, “and the people are coming out (to Vegas) and shopping because of the deals that are available.”

Najarian knows how to place his bets. After Goldman upgraded the stock shares of MGM have surged 15%.
