'Fast Money' Recap: Bullish or Bearish on Bonds?

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The S&P 500 initially jumped higher on better-than-expected nonfarm payrolls results but ended Friday lower by 0.13% due to worries over Ukraine. 

On CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show, Brian Kelly, founder of Brian Kelly Capital, pointed out the strength in the bond market, with the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) finishing higher on Friday. He argued that the current economic growth does not justify the valuation of the stock market. 

Tim Seymour, managing partner of Triogem Asset Management, disagreed with Kelly, saying he was bearish on bonds. He added that 10-year Treasury yields are likely headed higher although he was unsure if they could surpass 2.80%. 

Guy Adami, managing director of stockmonster.com, said he expects the TLT to go to $115. However, he admitted to thinking that the S&P 500 would be lower given the current performance of the bond market. 

Steve Grasso, director of institutional sales at Stuart Frankel, suggested that news out of Ukraine is the driving force behind the direction of the stock market. He said the S&P 500 seems likely to go lower. 

Grasso said oil drilling companies look likely to head lower. His top pick in the energy space is Cheniere Energy (LNG). Adami said energy stocks seems overvalued. 

Kelly said investors could use the earnings report from Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) as a read into the economy. The company slightly missed its recent earnings estimates. Kelly acknowledged that he is short the broader stock market. 

Grasso, who is long Twitter (TWTR), said to watch how the stock trades following the large share lockup expiration. If the stock holds up over the week, investors will likely take a chance on it, he suggested. 

Seymour, who is long Coca-Cola (KO), said the company has a compelling valuation at current levels but investors should not be buying the stock for growth potential. 

Adami added he would rather buy Coca-Cola on a breakout over $44 than at current levels. 

Grasso said Facebook (FB) should continue to buy out its competitors to prevent being irrelevant in the future.
