After the Microsoft (MSFT)-Yahoo! (YHOO) merger appeared to fall apart, U.S. stocks lost their mojo, closing to the downside Monday. The Dow dipped 0.7%, the S&P 500 stumbled 0.5 and the Nasdaq was also down 0.5%.On CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show, Pete Najarian said that copper, gold and steel all came back while financial stocks took it "a bit on the chin." He said that Bank of America ( BAC), Citigroup ( C) and AIG ( AIG) were the financial stocks to get hit. He said Google ( GOOG) and other tech stocks were making a comeback. On the Yahoo!-Microsoft news, Jeff Macke urged viewers to get out of Yahoo!. He said Microsoft is the better stock. He cautioned however that Microsoft will take time to rebuild confidence, because the company shouldn't have gotten involved with Yahoo! in the first place. Finerman said she sold some Yahoo! stock on its surprising strength today. Najarian said that the failure of Microsoft shares to spike on the news may indicate that someone thinks the Yahoo! deal may still happen. Guy Adami said the company can rebuild confidence by announcing a stock buyback.
