Guy Adami, the lone bear on the panel on
's "Fast Money" TV show said he hasn't budged in his position about the market. He said he can't, not with rising unemployment and the drop in consumer spending. "The tape wants to go higher, but no, I'm not more optimistic."
Meanwhile, Tim Seymour said he had all the ammunition needed to make the argument for a rising market. He alluded to an earnings upgrade for
Procter & Gamble
and a note from JPMorgan Chase, saying the stock market is a leading indicator that will foreshadow earnings going into the third quarter. He said what all this comes down to is expectations for higher earnings.

Karen Finerman said valuations are so overstretched that she is taking some money off the table. She added some of her defensive trades aren't working in this market climate.
Joe Terranova said he was defecting to Adami's bearish camp, adding he believes there will be a shallow correction for the rest of the month.
Melissa Lee, the moderator of the show, noted that gold slipped to $1,008 an ounce. Terranova said it looks llike the market wants to pull back. He also said the copper tape is telling "you there'a correction," noting inventory levels of the commodity have been rising the past 16 days and that China isn't restocking as it has in the past. He said he was "cautious about all risky assets."
Seymour said the large copper producers can live with copper at $2.75 a pound, and he said that today's drop in gold was tied a move up in the dollar.
With oil stagnant, Adami and Finerman said natural gas looks attractive. Adami called

Finerman said Congress could help the industry by extending the $8,000 credit to first-home buyers and broadening it to include more than just first-home buyers.
Greg Troccoli, the noted chartist from Opalesque, said there could very well be a pullback in the market the next few weeks. He said the homebuilders stocks are ahead of themselves and certain names in tech are near the last 5% of their moves.

Lee brought in Mark Mahaney, Citigroup investment research director, to talk about
, which was up 4% for the week. The stock closed at $491.46.
Mahaney said he would be very surprised if it doesn't rise above $500 between now and the end of the year. He said he expects Google to do well over $26 in earnings next year. Put a 20- to 25-multiple on that and you get $520 on the low end and above $600 on the high end, he said.
The driver for the business for the remainder of the year will be YouTube and mobile next year, he said. He also said Google will be the beneficiary of two major advertisers in the fourth quarter:
Procter & Gamble
Mahaney also liked the chances of
to move higher because of its attractive cash flow and interesting China Internet play.
In an interview with Finerman, U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said the jobs picture should improve with the release of stimulus funds for construction, rail, transportation and manufacturing. She said the two-year recovery plan is only into its sixth month.
Lee Amaitis, president and CEO for Cantor Gaming, came on the show to talk about the recent launch of some mobile gaming products that will allow casino goers to gamble away from the tables and make bets on sporting events. He said the reception has been very good for the devices.
