'Fast Money' Recap: Market Volatility Returns
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed lower each day this week for the first time in nearly two years.
On CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show, Tim Seymour, managing partner of Triogem Asset Management, pointed out that volatility has finally started to creep into the market. He advised investors to stayed hedged, partly by selling the Materials Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLB) and the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM).
Guy Adami, managing director of stockmonster.com, said the S&P 500 could trade down to 1,816 before finding some level of support. He added that bond yields could continue moving lower throughout the rest of 2014.
Brian Kelly, founder of Brian Kelly Capital, said he sold some of his "risk-off" positions and bought more "risk-on" positions, meaning he thinks U.S. stocks could rally next week. He added that a lot of the current negative news is already priced into the market.Steve Grasso, director of institutional sales at Stuart Frankel, said Friday's weakness seems to be overdone. However, he argued there is still a lot of uncertainty in the market due to geopolitical issues out of Ukraine. Seymour, who is short the DAX, said German equities are at a bigger risk to geopolitical turmoil in Eastern Europe. Gordon Johnson, senior equity research analyst at Axiom Capital, said he's bearish on China, saying the country's debt continues to grow. He suggested that growth in the region could slow as a result of lower lending. Therefore, he recommended short-selling Joy Global (JOY), Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF), U.S. Steel (X) and Rio Tinto (RIO). Kelly said investors should avoid shares of Target (TGT) since there are no positive catalysts in the near term. Seymour agreed, saying investors need to wait for Target to bottom before stepping in to buy. Grasso said investors should watch Tesla Motors (TSLA) to see if it holds $225. If it does and rallies next week, then they should buy the stock.
