3 Stocks I Saw on TV

Pete Najarian said on CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show, that he was impressed with RIM, which was up more than 10% in after-hours trading, and its 4.4 million subscribers, revenue and earnings beat and upbeat forecast.

Guy Adami said now might be time to short RIM, noting it's reached about the same level where it was in the past quarter when the stock broke down.

Karen Finerman said RIM's success should rub off on other smartphone makers like Apple (AAPL).

Tim Seymour said the impressive point about RIM was its gross margins, which came in close to the analysts' estimates of 43%. Seymour and Najarian clashed over what impact it would have on Nokia (NOK - Get Report) .

Seymour said RIM's gross margins would be good news for Nokia, while Najarian insisted Nokia has to do a better job of selling its smartphones in the U.S. market and being more price competitive. Najarian was so disgusted with Nokia that he threw his $500 Nokia phone on the floor.
