The Fast Money guys look ahead to Thursday's retail sales

Jeff says Mother’s Day will be the driver of sales. Consequently, Jeff likes retailers that are family names such as Jos A Banks (JOSB), Gymboree (GYMB), and Children’s Place (PLCE). (Ironically none of these stores sell clothes for Mom!)

Eric Bolling says the best retailer in the world is Chevron (CVX).
