Final Call: Oil Effect Slippery on Retail

Friday, 8 Aug 2008 | 4:23 PM ET

Karen Finerman of the Fast Money team joins Dylan Ratigan for the last Final Call of the week, and their discussion revolves around how oil has "jerked around" retailers.

Dylan remarks on the overall lousy retail data yesterday, even with the recent drop in crude, which traditionally helps retail stocks. Karen however, said she could not find a lot of data of correlation in these past days.

She did revisit some retailers today and decided to buy one mentioned on last night's Fast Money: Abercrombie & Finch , as it "didn't participate with the others."
