The Latest Picks That Paid - Friday November 20th

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."

Pete Najarian

On October 27th you might say Fast Money’s Commander Planet took his trading cue from another super hero – Iron Man. “Play metals,” Najarian said. "And do it with Cliffs Natural Resources. In fact, I already own this. “

It looks like our man of steel can recognize a mighty trade. Since he said to get long, shares of Cliffs surged to a new 52-week high after the company declared a dividend and gave a strong outlook.

Karen Finerman

On October 29th the Chairwoman suggested developing an appetite for fast food stocks. “I like Yum!”, she said, “They have great geographic diversity. And the stock hasn't gone anywhere lately, it’s down in fact – two reasons to buy it!”

The Chairwoman sure knows how to cook up profits. Since she said to get long the stock spiked due to multiple upgrades and plans of expanding their presence in India.

Joe Terranova

On November 4th the Liquidator spotted strength in a semi. “I would point our viewers toward looking at Broadcom,” he said. “That's a name I think you can own.”

If you established a long position two weeks ago, this semi stock turned out to be a super conductor -- of profits! After positive analyst comments Broadcom shares rallied nearly 10% in 14 days.

Steve Grasso

On October 8th the Governor got on the gold train. “Look at Yamana Gold,” he said. “Its price targets continue to get raised. I think gold goes higher and this one goes higher, too.”

It’s cliché, but you have to admit Grasso has the midas touch. Since he said to get long this miner – gold has made multiple new record highs and the miner climbed too.

Now that’s Fast Money.
