Trader Steve Grasso also eyed both stocks. “It’s going one way, it’s going north. These are names you have to hold your nose and just buy them,” he said.
Shares of Palo Alto are up about 50 percent year-to-date. FireEye stock is also up 70 percent from the beginning of the year.
Kansas City Southern and CSX
Trader Tim Seymour focused his attention on the transports Thursday, examining Kansas City Southern and CSX in particular. He said that Wednesday’s dovish Fed statement “means the transports can continue to run.”
“A lot of these guys were going through pricing issues, but commodity prices are now starting to bottom. The valuations here are very interesting,” he said.
Trader Brian Kelly said on Thursday that he bought shares of Microsoft as a result of the market rally.
“It has a 3 percent dividend yield. It’s a big cap tech, exposed to the world, and would do well under a weaker dollar; so, for me, that’s the trade you do here,” he said. “That’s why people, I think. were piling into the Nasdaq.”
