Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU)’s earning reports a couple of weeks ago was impressive.  “They came out with an earnings report couple of weeks ago that looked very good on the surface. They are going to earn over $4 a share this year, so they are trading right now at about 8x earnings” said Mr. Murphy.

The second most profitable trade according to the ‘Fast Money’ crew is EOG Resources Inc. (NYSE:EOG) given the current market conditions. Joe Terranova remains bullish on EOG Resources Inc.

Monetization of assets and domestic production oil rises continues to make EOG Resources one of the top trades for the year according to the investor.

Despite EOG Resources Inc. (NYSE:EOG)’s current position, Mr. Terranova said he is staying with it, in anticipation of more upside from the stock in the coming months.

Halcon Resources Corp (NYSE:HK), on the other hand, is one of the best performing stocks over a short period of time, of which Mr. Stephen Weiss reiterated his long position on. The rise of Halcon Resources Corp (NYSE:HK) in the market according to Mr. Weiss can be attributed to its CEO, who has been calling all the shots in driving the company with the potential of being sold.
