NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The S&P 500 added to Thursday's gains, ending Friday 1.33% higher.
On CNBC's TV show, Guy Adami, managing director of stockmonster.com, said he wasn't convinced by the stock market's rally. He said by next Friday the S&P 500 will likely be below 1,750 and have tested 1,725.
Steve Grasso, director of institutional sales at Stuart Frankel, said the weak economic data likely have some investors thinking the Federal Reserve will ease up on its tapering plans. He said that's not going to happen and he trimmed some of his long positions.
Tim Seymour, managing partner of Triogem Asset Management, was more optimistic on the economy. However, he admitted the market is approaching resistance and suggested investors should consider waiting to buy.
Brian Kelly, founder of Brian Kelly Capital, said the economy is getting weaker and rising energy costs will hurt the consumer. He remains short U.S. equities.
Apple (AAPL) announced that it repurchased $14 billion worth of stock in the past two weeks. Brian Blair, senior research analyst at Wedge Partners, was a guest on the show discussing the stock.
He advised investors not to sell shares of Apple after Friday's pop. He reasoned that multiple products will be launched in 2014, which should push share prices higher. He added that $500 seems like a solid level of support.
Seymour said it doesn't make sense to compare Apple and Google (GOOG) based on valuation because they are two completely different companies with different businesses.
Grasso agreed, callig Google a value and growth company. With that being said, he admitted Apple could rip much higher on a positively accepted new product introduction. Adami and Seymour said they would stay long Apple after Friday's move. Kelly is a seller.
Netflix (NFLX) posted new highs on Friday and Seymour said the valuation doesn't matter for this stock. He is interested in Time Warner (TWX) because of its lowly valued HBO business. Adami agreed TWX is interesting on the long side.
Shares of Gap (GPS) rallied 6%. Adami said the company had good comp sales, poor revenue and healthy guidance. He suggested taking profits at current levels and getting long again if the stock can break out over $42.
Kelly said he would be a seller of GPS because of its poor intraday price action and a weakening consumer.
Despite having a good Friday, up 8%, Twitter (TWTR) finished the week lower by 17%. Grasso purchased shares and said there is support near $50.
Kelly said he's not buying natural gas and wouldn't get back into the asset unless there was another wave of very cold temperatures. He is a buyer of fruits and vegetables, however, because of the shortage likely to occur due to the weather conditions in California.
Tesla Motors (TSLA) was the first stock on the show's "Pops & Drops" segment. Grasso said the company is now among the top five car brands, which is rated by Consumer Reports.
SodaStream (SODA) dropped 2% and Adami said traders could own the stock into earnings.
Lowe's (LOW) fell 1% after being downgraded by Goldman Sachs. Kelly said investors could buy the stock if they believe that home repair and remodeling will remain strong.
Nokia (NOK) popped 9%. Seymour said investors shouldn't chase the stock as there is resistance near $8.
