'Fast Money' Recap: Playing the Commodities

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The markets closed lower on Friday, snapping a six-week win streak.

On CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show, Guy Adami said that Iron Mountain ( IRM) could be worth a look after it held its lows from 2012, despite the IRS scrutinizing the company's REIT eligibility.

Brian Kelly said he isn't the biggest fan of Alcoa ( AA), but the chart is setting up nicely and the news of Russia looking to stockpile aluminum bodes well for the company.

Walter Energy ( WLT) and Cliffs Natural Resources ( CLF) are breaking out, according to Tim Seymour. He said that if iron ore goes higher, so will these two stocks.

Josh Brown said there is a fundamental shift towards global growth, and international PMI data seems to confirm that. He thinks the Vanguard Materials ETF ( VAW) is the best way to play, as long as the market doesn't give out.

Kelly said to go with the gold miners, since a bottom may be in the for the yellow metal. He added that traders could look to the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF ( GDX) or to the SPDR Gold Trust ETF ( GLD) to play a rise in gold prices.

American Eagle Outfitters ( AEO) was the first stock on the show's "Pop & Drops" segment, which was down 16% for the week. Adami said traders could look to take the long side with a very tight stop.

Potash ( POT) was up 4% on the week and Seymour said the stock will continue to go higher.

Brown said First Solar ( FSLR) has finally given investors a pullback to buy, after an okay quarter.

Sony ( SNE) was down 7% for the week and Kelly said to avoid it because the Japanese stock market looks like it has more downside ahead.

Cisco Systems ( CSCO) reports earnings Wednesday. Seymour said the Street will be expecting an increase to the dividend and strong sales. He added that the company had two good quarters in a row, but has seen resistance at $27.

Adami said buyers could look to get into BlackBerry ( BBRY) to squeeze the shorts, but the stock never seems to find a true bottom.

Priceline.com ( PCLN) popped after beating on top- and bottom-line earnings estimates. Brown said the stock will probably hit $1,000 per share soon, but he prefers Google ( GOOG).

Adami said that he doesn't like Xerox ( XRX) that much on the long side, unless traders are playing for a short squeeze.

Brown said he still likes the Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF ( VGK) and that it will continue to do well.

For the their final trades, Seymour said to buy Cliffs Natural Resources, Adami was buying Iron Mountain and Brown was a buyer of the Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF. Kelly was selling MetLife ( MET).
