Mike Khouw said there's even some optimism in the options space for
, one of the first companies to report earnings next month.
Karen Finerman said she hasn't seen this strong of an S&P rally since March 2009. She said investors have to be disciplined by selling into the rally, buying puts and hedging their portfolios.
Steve Grasso said the financials have not participated in the rally. Finerman said she would use the opportunity to buy on weakness, especially stocks such as
Bank of America
David Trone, managing director of JMP Securiteis, said he liked the securities firms such as
. He considered them good buys going forward.
He said these firms are poised for a comeback and will benefit from the capital market recovery. He said these firms have managed to "dodge the bullet" from Basel III and the new financial reform law.
He said the same cannot be said for consumer finance companies like
Bank of America
, which will not fare as well because of lower returns from their lending business.
Shifting to retail sector, Finerman expressed some caution for the retail stocks noting the bar for retailers is being set higher for them going into earnings. Adami added that it's time to take some profits in
, which was up 2.38% today and hit a new high. The valuation is getting a little stretched, he said.
Gold moved to another high, setting off another round of speculation by panelists of its future. Grasso said gold might lose its luster after the November elections. Finerman said the theory that gold might cool off if a Republican victory in November increases the prospects for a more fiscally responsible government makes sense.
Khouw said it was difficult to understand what gold stands for in a trade. He said he has seen it move from a risk aversion trade to one that moves in tandem with the equities.
Michael Block, of Phoenix Partners Group, said he wary about chasing gold and said he recommended reducing exposure in it.

Advance Micro Devices
Adami said traders need to get back in the space, adding it's "difficult to be on the short space. Grasso said AMD's rise was due to a combination of factors: short covering, takeover speculation and the general feeling that "no wants to be caught short over the weekend."
Lee noted that
was the Dow's top performer, up 5% for the day. Adami said the stock's valuation is relative inexpensive, but he said he would pause here and get some put protection. Finerman said she was considering buying some put protection in
with volatility so low after a big run.
Looking at tech next week, Finerman said she likes
whose valuation, she said, is "way too cheap." Khouw said he would be looking at
as it marches to $300.
In the final trades, Khouw said he would buy some put protection in Caterpillar. Adami said he thinks Bank of America is headed higher if the market heads higher. Finerman liked
