Wednesday, 16 May 2007 | 1:14 PM ET

Retail investors are bracing for a storm, coming later this week. J.C. Penney (JCP),Kohl's(KSS), and Nordstrom's (JWN) will barrage Wall Street with quarterly earnings on Thursday. That leaves you one day to make your move. What is it?

Jeff Macke reminds the panel that he thinks the releases this quarter are going to be uniformly bad. Don’t short the space, he says, just avoid it.
