Trader Radar - Wednesday October 29th

Wednesday, 29 Oct 2008 | 1:57 PM ET

Q: On Fast Money’s trader radar we look at the stock that was lighting up screens across Wall Street. This company started in the kitchen, after the founder was inspired by classic French cooking equipment. It has since moved to all rooms of the house, using a direct mail strategy to popularize its Pottery Barn chain but shareholders couldn't take the heat and got out of the kitchen today after the company slashed its earnings forecast in half. Who is it?

A: On the trader radar tonight we’re watching Williams-Sonoma! The biggest US gourmet-cookware chain was among the most active names on the NYSE today.
