'Fast Money' Recap: Looking for the Upside

Stock quotes in this article: VIX.X, TSLA, GM, YHOO, CSCO, BBRY, FB, GOOG, NFLX, MNKD

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The S&P 500 closed higher by 0.46% on Friday. 

On CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show, Tim Seymour, managing partner of Triogem Asset Management, said the S&P 500 is only 2% off its highs despite many individual momentum stocks doing much worse lately. He said financial and industrial stocks have upside. 

Pete Najarian, co-founder of optionmonster.com and trademonster.com, pointed out the S&P 500 and the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX.X) are essentially unchanged from one month ago. He suggested that if momentum stocks begin to rebound the broader market could move significantly higher. 

Brian Kelly, founder of Brian Kelly Capital, said the market should have an easier time rallying as geopolitical issues and international growth concerns begin to diminish.

Guy Adami, managing director of stockmonster.com, said equities will be able to move higher if the financials sector goes higher, and if industrial and transport stocks can bottom out.

Tesla Motors (TSLA) bounced 2.5%. Seymour said he was not a buyer based on forward valuation. 

Kelly was a buyer of Tesla, saying investor optimism over the company's future is strong, which is a reason to buy in the short term. Najarian said investors who are long Tesla could purchase put options as a hedge against a price decline. 

Adami said to buy General Motors (GM) with support at $34. 

Najarian found a bullish options trade in Yahoo! (YHOO) where someone purchased 15,000 of the June $40/$45 bull call spreads. He added that the stock is not overvalued at current levels. 

Kelly said Cisco Systems (CSCO) has a low valuation, solid dividend and is making a push into the cloud business, which has higher growth. 

Colin Gillis, director of research and senior tech analyst at BGC Financial, was a guest on the show. He has a sell rating on BlackBerry (BBRY) with an $8 price target. He said CEO John Chen is good at turning around companies and is doing a good job so far at BlackBerry. However, the company continues to experience declining revenue, which fell 62% year over year.

Gillis said the stock has upside potential but it is dependent on the company turning around its core business. Only time will tell, he said, but BlackBerry is at least focusing on physical keyboards and its enterprise customers again. 

Kelly called Facebook (FB) a "mini Google (GOOG)," and said he likes the stock. He added that shares traded well near the $60 level. 

Connor Storck, a student at the University of Detroit Jesuit High School, was a guest on the show. He was a buyer of Netflix (NFLX) due to the company's original programming, high acceptance from the younger generation and its streaming efforts. He was also a buyer of Cisco because of its advances in the cloud. He was a seller of MannKind (MNKD).
