'Fast Money' Recap: What Does It All Mean?



Finerman expects no change for Ford's fortunes, given its deep bench. Four or five years ago this would've been a big deal, Guy Adami, managing director of stockMONSTER.com, said. Yum is at a different point, where CEO change could have a significant effect on a stock with this kind of precarious, lofty magnitude.

As for which companies they'd sell on a change in CEO, Nathan pointed to Cisco (CSCO). John Chambers has done a nice job on a lot of levels, up 1080%, amid a lot of restructuring, but is a stock that could do a lot if they could pull off as seamless a transition as Microsoft (MSFT) just did, he said.

Najarian selected Select Comfort (SCSS), which has grossly underperformed competitors under the leadership of Shelly Ibach.

Finerman cannot imagine a CEO more tied to a company than Elon Musk at Tesla (TSLA). If he left, she'd have to be a seller.

Adami says that Reed Hastings at Netflix (NFLX) has become bigger than the company itself and he'd have to sell if Musk left.

Opentable (OPEN) dropped on earnings. Nathan sees a situation where people are looking hard at valuations. It is down 25% on recent highs and needs to wash out before you buy it.

Redbox operator Outerwall (OUTR) reported a revenue increase of 4.7%. Finerman says she's hanging onto it.

Western Union (WU) reported mixed results, beating EPS and missing revenue. Adami says he'd play it from the long side, looking for a short-covering bounce.

Avon Products (AVP) was the first stock on the show's "Pops & Drops" segment. Finerman said that if Visa's (V) everywhere you want to be, Avon is everywhere you don't want to be.
