'Fast Money' Recap: Closing the Year on a High Note

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The S&P 500 surged higher in the final minutes of Tuesday's trading session to close at all-time highs on the last trading day of 2013. 

On CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show, Guy Adami, managing director of stockmonster.com, said Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) has been a laggard for the past three years. However, in 2014 positive news and good results from its oil and gas division could push the stock higher. 

Tim Seymour, managing partner of Triogem Asset Management, likes Walter Energy (WLT) heading into 2014. He added that restructuring efforts at the company and a continued global recovery should help push the stock higher. 

Jim Lebenthal, CFO and CIO of Lebenthal & Company, said Exelon (EXC) should do well in 2014. He reasoned that demand for nuclear power will increase -- which is good for EXC -- as natural gas prices continue to rise and get too expensive. 

Brian Kelly, founder of Brian Kelly Capital, is a seller of Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD), which had a good 2013. 

Seymour said gold could continue lower, possibly to $1,100 per ounce, but he's a buyer of Barrick Gold (ABX) because of its solid balance sheet. He also likes it as a play for an eventual rebound in gold prices. 

Adami said Netflix (NFLX) is unlikely to duplicate 2013's performance but should continue higher in 2014. 

Kelly said Twitter (TWTR) seems likely to head to $70. He raised his stop-loss to $58 and suggested investors do so as well if the stock continues to rise. 

Lebenthal thinks TWTR might head lower, but suggested investors could sell put options as a means for getting long. 

Seymour said Blackstone (BX) continues to have solid growth and he likes the stock. Adami agreed, saying it could get back to $38. 

Lebenthal said American International Group (AIG) is still undervalued based on book value. 

Kelly suggested investors could sell puts on the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX.X), which he predicted will rise in 2014, specifically February or March. 

Seymour likes Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) because of stabilizing PC sales, future increases in free-cash flow and favorable valuation.
