Frank Zorrilla says he trades everything.

He’s the founder and chief investment officer of Zor Capital, and he recently joined Benzinga’s #PreMarket Prep to talk about why he won’t trade Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) like a momentum stock.

“You can have a value stock that gets momentum,” he said. “It could be a small-cap. It could be a value play. It could be a beaten up play. If you’re talking about Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, I trade it.”

But when it comes large-cap companies, Zorrilla is not looking to buy breakouts. Zorrilla explained that he has a scan on large-cap, S&P 500, Dow Jones companies, etc., so he gets an alert if the stock has been down three days in a row and is up today.

“A company like Apple, I’m a buyer of that stock on pullbacks,” he said. “I think if you’re looking to trade breakouts, small-caps is the way to go.”

Zorrilla’s recommendation for playing big names like Apple is to wait for when the stock is down for three days and then up for one, or down from the 20-day or 50-day moving average, then buy on the pullbacks.

Zorrilla also talked about Lululemon Athletica inc. (NASDAQ: LULU) and crude oil.
