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."

Karen Finerman

On September 2nd, the Chairwoman thought that after such sharp declines, real estate looked like it was a real value. “The short commercial real estate trade, I really believe is over,” she said, “If you look at a chart of the IYR it suggests we bottomed out here. I wouldn't short here.”

As it turns out, the land trade landed some impressive returns. Over the past month the IYR shot higher due to renewed optimism about the recovery.

On October 2nd the Negotiator suggested that although Alcoa made aluminum the stock looked more like a steel – err… steal, that is. “I think you own Alcoa,” he said. “This stock has basically gone down forever. At this price its probably ok to own.”

Ok to own indeed. Shares of Alcoa surged higher after the company reported earnings that blew past estimates.

On September 22nd the Ambassador headed south for a trade that ultimately went north. “I’d look at Mexico-based Homex,” he said “The home building market in Latin America is going through the roof.”

This housing trade was certainly well constructed. Solid second quarter results sent Homex shares a few stories higher.

On September 30th the Liquidator spotted a golden opportunity in precious metals. “Gold has had every reason in the last seven days to go down and it has not,” he said. That is why I believe trade here is to the upside.”

A long position in gold certainly made Terranova's portfolio sparkle. Gold has been climbing steadily over the past 2 weeks due to a convergence of factors including the dollar's decline, technical buying and inflation fears.

Now that’s Fast Money.
