Call of the Day – Goldman Says Buy Freeport

The Fast Money traders put Freeport McMoRan on the radar after analysts at Goldman said the recent correction in metals offered a great buying opportunity.

According to the firm, "the best vehicle to express a bullish view on copper" is the world's largest publicly traded copper miner, FCX.

Should you follow Goldman’s call?

Brian Kelly wouldn't. “A lot of China’s copper is being stored in warehouses and can come right back on the market,” he says. In fact, Kelly is shortcopper. However, he adds he would not short FCX as a proxy for copper because he thinks it's a well run company.

Stephen Weiss doesn’t agree. He feels Beijing is effectively cracking down on buyers of copper who put it in warehouses.
