Back, as in you can start buying these stocks again. That's what Cramer said on Mad Money. It's a good time to get in on some F.A.D.S. C.A.N. names even though these stocks could get hit hard as the market falls. These are high growth stocks with plenty of more room to grow and it's a good time to get in on some high flyers when the market tanks. What types of companies are in this group? Well, a networking company, an online retail giant, a shoe company, a software/cloud computing company, a quality burrito restaurant, a beast

What do you think? Does this have wings....or is it just a bunch of bunk? Everyone's looking for that extra edge in the market though. In the past there was talk of looking at trends on search terms in Google to gauge how the stock market or a certain company/sector was going to perform.  Now that's distilled down even further or faster with Twitter, where reactions and information is exchanged immediately about stocks and the economy in general.

It seems like Benny Bernanke ducked out while all of this debit limit political infighting was taking place. Where was he though? Was he trimming his beard? Watching more baseball games? Catching up on Break Bad episodes? This is exactly the time when he's needed. He'll be front and center in a week or so though, as FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) will meet Aug. 9 in Washington. The big question is what can big Ben do to get the United States economy back on track. He does have a few options:
  • Announce free ice cream for everyone
  • Tell everyone to

Ever the one to put a positive spin on something and cheer everyone up, here's Roubini's latest tweet after the market broke down today:
Lousy GDP, depressed housing, plunging ISM, falling consumption, job losses, fiscal drag, EZ crisis. No wonder now markets are free falling
He's right, things are bad. But it would be nice if he could for once look forward and maybe see something bright and shiny on the horizon, rather than always doom and gloom. The day will come when he will do just that. I

On Friday's Fast Money Half Time show Najarian said he wants to see more of a pull back in the stock market before he buys:
Option Monster Jon Najarian is not a buyer right now – but only because he wants a bigger pullback before jumping in. “I’m a buyer of big fear,” he says. “Buy the big dips not the little piddly stuff we’re seeing. I want more fear but then I’d buy.”

Who cares about the debit limit crisis in the United States or the debit troubles in Greece or Italy or Spain or where ever else. We've got more important things to worry about. Jon Najarian is perhaps our favorite Fast Money trader on CNBC for a myriad of reason. For one, he always seems to be right on with his trades, picking winners by following the options trail. Plus, he chronicles his jet setting lifestyle via Twitter along the way, with pictures of Times Square and sunsets as he travels back and forth from New York and Chicago. Sometimes

There has to be a reality show about the wives of traders and investment bankers on Wall Street. There just has to be. In the picture above, Lisa Najarian, is the blonde on the far left. It is the pinnacle of all other wives, forget about Orange County or Jersey, Wall Street is where it's at. That's where the real money is. Beverly Hills, nah. It's the green backs that litter the streets of Wall Street, whether that money is from a bailout or a short squeeze, it's still green and the wives get some of it. One wife that

Google is flying high after strong Q2 earnings while investors continue to snap up shares after the successful launch of Google+. On CNBC's Fast Money, James Altucher of Formula Capital says Google is going to $1500 a share! Yes, that's right, $1500 per share. Google's stock, which is hovering around $600 a share right now, would have to more than double if Altucher's prediction is to come true. Sure, Mr. Altucher is known for his outrageous and headline grabbing predictions, but, as you listen to him more and more, he makes a lot of sense. He's talking about one of the

Like Chicken Little, Dick Bove says the sky is falling and it's time to sell all stocks until the debit limit crisis is past. Go all crash is his call. What do you think? Many are saying the bottom might be in when people like Bove are calling for people to get out of the stock market entirely.
"It now makes sense to test the unthinkable," he writes. "Thus, for the moment I would suggest suspending investing since all stocks are likely to fall."
