Trader Radar - Wednesday, Feb. 27th

Wednesday, 27 Feb 2008 | 1:39 PM ET

Q: On Fast Money's Trader Radar we look at the stock that was lighting up screens across Wall Street today. This Virginia-based company was founded as the Ben Franklin Variety Store in 1953. The old name was dropped but a dollar still goes a long way at its stores where everything from shampoo to wind chimes are priced exactly the same. Today, the company made a ton of dollars for its investors after saying an early Easter should put a spring in the step of shoppers. Who is it?

A: Dollar Tree Stores is on the Trader Radar tonight. This discount retailer traded higher on four times its normal average volume today.
