You Ask, Stockpickr Answers

Stocks in this article: RIMM WFC GE

Throughout the trading week on Stockpickr Answers, investing professionals answer questions posed by members of the Stockpickr community.

TSC Ratings Analyst David MacDougall answered questions on Wednesday.

Recently on, MacDougall discussed whether Fifth Third (FITB - Get Report) is too big to fail, if General Electric (GE - Get Report) represents the " buying opportunity of a lifetime," and Wells Fargo's (WFC - Get Report) unjust punishment.

Here are some questions and comments from the Stockpickr community that MacDougall responded to on Wednesday. You might have to scroll through to find his answers.

  • Why is Apollo (APOL - Get Report) down so much today?

  • Do you specialize in certain market sectors?

  • What is your opinion of Research In Motion (RIMM) here? Currently I'm up about 7% on a decent-sized position, and I'm debating whether to hold through earnings tomorrow after the bell. I think eventually RIMM goes higher, but I'm worried about a short-term pullback.

    Also, do you have any opinions on Axsys (AXYS) as a takeover play?

  • Do you have any opinion on the overall future growth of the wireless market? I know some are seeing a general slowdown, but as new products roll out and speeds get faster, I see a lot of people continuing to upgrade.

    Who do you see as the big winners going forward?
