Trader Radar - Tuesday Feb. 5th

Tuesday, 5 Feb 2008 | 5:02 PM ET

Q: On Fast Money’s trader radar we look at the stock that was lighting up screens across Wall Street. Today we’re looking at a firm that was founded in 1886 and originally known as the California perfume company. Even though it is losing share to Proctor & Gamble’s Cover Girl here at home, growth in China and Latin America boosted shares of this door-to-door cosmetics seller. Last clue: Reese Witherspoon is the make-up firm's latest “lady”. Who is it?

A:Avon Products is on Tuesday's Trader Radar. The cosmetics vendor traded almost four times its average daily volume.
