NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at an all-time high as the markets roared higher once again. 

On CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show, Tim Seymour, managing partner of Triogem Asset Management, said Google (GOOG) - Get Alphabet Inc. Class C Report is his top technology pick. 

Jon Najarian, co-founder of and, said if China starts to do well, then Sina (SINA) - Get SINA Corp. Report, Qihoo 360 Technology (QIHU) and the iSharesChina Large-Cap ETF (FXI) - Get iShares China Large-Cap ETF Report should all do very well.

Karen Finerman, president of Metropolitan Capital Advisors, said that not all stocks are going up and down in unison. She added that many stocks are now trading based on the fundamentals. 

Dan Nathan, co-founder and editor of, agreed with Finerman, pointing out the weakness in big tech names like InternationalBusinessMachine (IBM) - Get International Business Machines (IBM) Report and CiscoSystems (CSCO) - Get Cisco Systems, Inc. Report

He also said investors shouldn't buy Micron (MU) - Get Micron Technology, Inc. (MU) Report until it pulls back. Najarian concurred, adding that he wouldn't short the stock. 

Najarian said Apple (AAPL) - Get Apple Inc. (AAPL) Report should break out of its trading range and could hit $560 by year's end. He added that it should report a great quarter in January. 

Nathan said Apple could get a deal done with China Mobile Limited (CHL) - Get China Mobile Limited Sponsored ADR Report by mid-December. 

Pandora (P) fell after reporting earnings and Nathan said to buy it the mid-$20s. 

Mary Epner, a retail analysis principal, was a guest on the show and said she liked RossStores, (ROST) - Get Ross Stores, Inc. Report, despite its earnings report. She said the luxury market and discount stores are still doing well, while middle-priced markets aren't faring as well. She said companies like Polo Ralph Lauren (RL) - Get Ralph Lauren Corporation Class A Report and Michael Kors (KORS) should continue to do well. Epner stressed that jewelry, accessories, shoes and athletic apparel should do well. 

Finerman said her top picks in retail continue to be Macy's (M) - Get Macy's Inc Report and FootLocker (FL) - Get Foot Locker, Inc. Report

Najarian said he likes BurlingtonStores (BURL) - Get Burlington Stores, Inc. Report and TJXCompanies (TJX) - Get TJX Companies Inc Report

Nathan warned investors about the number of retailers near 52-week highs, and noted that many have sold off since, such as GameStop (GME) - Get GameStop Corp. Class A Report and BestBuy (BBY) - Get Best Buy Co., Inc. Report.  

The Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) - Get Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund Report is finally breaking out above resistance, Nathan said. He suggested the ETF could go above $24 and said it should trend higher into 2014. 

Finerman said she likes J.P. Morgan (JPM) - Get JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) Report and BankofAmerica (BAC) - Get Bank of America Corp Report, while Citigroup (C) - Get Citigroup Inc. Report was her top pick.

Seymour said BAC could get to $19. 

Nathan said he's short the SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) - Get SPDR Gold Trust Report and is looking for it to hit $115, where it will likely find support. 

General Motors (GM) - Get General Motors Company (GM) Report was the first stock on the show's "Pops & Drops" segment and Finerman said the U.S. Treasury department is almost completely out of the stock. 

Yum Brands (YUM) - Get Yum! Brands, Inc. (YUM) Report popped 4%. Seymour said he would be cautious, because there always seems to be unappealing Chinese data that hurts the stock. 

GoGo (GOGO) - Get Gogo Inc. Report jumped 7% and Nathan said the huge short interest can easily cause a short-squeeze higher whenever there is good news. 

GameStop (GME) - Get GameStop Corp. Class A Report fell 7% and Najarian said the time to buy the stock was three or four months ago, not now. 

The Fresh Market (TFM) missed on the top and bottom lines and Nathan said the industry seems expensive because competition continues to increase. 

Finerman said she does not like to buy ahead of big events, such as LionsGateEntertainment's (LGF) Hunger Games: Catching Fire debut. Instead, she called it a "buy-the-rumor, sell-the-news" type of event. 

Nathan said he would be a buyer of F5Networks (FFIV) - Get F5 Networks, Inc. Report near $70. 

Seymour said U.S. Steel (X) - Get United States Steel Corporation Report could continue to go higher and he would stay long. 

Nathan said 3DSystems (DDD) - Get 3D Systems Corporation Report has a high short interest and a ridiculous valuation, but investors could probably buy below $50.

For their final trades, Najarian is buying DollarGeneral (DG) - Get Dollar General Corporation Report and Seymour suggested investors trim long positions in CliffsNaturalResources (CLF) - Get Cleveland-Cliffs Inc Report and WalterEnergy (WLT) . Finerman is a buyer of FL and Nathan said to short IBM via long put options.
