'Fast Money' Recap: Apple's Date With $500

Stocks in this article: BACNUANDMNDGNKTTWOAAPLSWN

Diamond Foods (DMND) was down 37% today after announcing plans to restate its financial statements for the past two years.

Still, Tim Ramey, of D.A Davidson, maintained a buy rating on the stock, with a price target of $44. Ramey said the audit committee report is clear that there was no intent to push costs through, adding the walnut costs were close to what should be accrued.

Tamey said Diamond Foods can either continue operating its business or sell off some of its assets. He said he thinks it will continue to run the business, which he maintained was untouched by the scandal.

Lee brought in Stephanie Ericksen, head of authentication product integration for Visa (V), to discuss Visa, to discuss her company's plans to upgrade its credit and debit cards with chips.

Ericksen said the main purpose of the chip-enabled cards is to make it easier for banks to detect counterfeit fraud. She said there is a roadmap in place for merchants to upgrade their point-of-sale terminals.

Shifting to the Volality Playbook, Najarian said headline risks are behind the move of VIX back up through 20. He said investors are seeking protection and taking profits off the table.

For a technical view of the market, Carter Worth, a chartologist with Oppenheimer Asset management, said the S&P 500 small cap index is reaching its momentum peak. He said investors usually respond when this happens by selling their stocks and booking their profits.

He said the price of gold looks like it's "coming apart." As for individual stocks, he said he liked Genco Shipping & Trading (GNK), saying it has some more room to run. He said TJX (TJX) had turned into a crowded trade.

Lee brought in Jerry Howard, CEO of the National Association of Home Builders, which is hosting a trade show in Orlando. He presented a bullish picture of the trade show, with attendance up 10% from a year ago and exhibitors and builders optimistic about a turn in the housing industry.

Lee and some panelists expressed their doubts about the turnaround. Lee noted several appliance makers took a pass on the trade show, while Terranova said housing prices need to stabilize before talk of an industry turnaround.
