'Fast Money' Recap: Getting Defensive

Stocks in this article: FB GOOG NFLX AOL RT CMG JOSB MW CTXS NOW YUM AA MUR DRI FST HPQ XOM APA IBM DG COST TSC

Citrix Systems (CTXS) missed on its earnings report. and Link said that ServiceNow (NOW) is a stock that interests her.

Yum! Brands (YUM) was the first stock on the show's "Pops & Drops" segment. Seymour said investors can look to buy near $65.

Alcoa (AA) popped 2%. Link said the comments from management seem optimistic.

Murphy Oil (MUR) dropped 1%. Mike Khouw said that crude inventories weighed on the stock today and he would avoid it.

Darden Restaurants (DRI) jumped 7%. Finerman said the stock seems interesting after news surfaced of a possible breakup of some of its restaurant brands.

Fastenal (FAST) fell 6%. Adami said it could trade all the way down to $40.

Link doesn't really care for Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) because of growth issues. Seymour said the turnaround story is working slowly, but is already priced into the stock.

Adami said Exxon Mobil (XOM) seems like a solid bounce play because of a "double bottom" on the charts, but Apache (APA) is better for the longer term.

Regis Philbin was a guest on the show and said Micron (MU) should go to $20 and higher. He's correctly called the stock for several months. He prefers to buy near Halloween, since the markets are seasonally weak in September and October. He also likes Facebook, International Business Machine (IBM) and Hewlett-Packard.

For their final trades, Finerman was a buyer of Jos. A. Bank Clothiers, Link liked Dollar General (DG), and Adami said to buyer Costco Wholesale (COST). Seymour said to go long Tesoro (TSO) and Khouw concurred, but by selling November put options instead.
