Here's what's up on Thursday's Squawk on the Street:
--The retailers are back big time. Target reports. Kohl's reports. We're watching both.
--Plus, the energy trade as oil tops $100 a barrel on fears the violence and mayhem in the Middle East will spill over to Saudi Arabia. On that theme, we have the CEO of RailAmerica. He'll explain how his company's faring with energy prices as high as they are.
--That brings us to today's Street Poll: will the United States ever really be able to kick the oil habit and make green infrastructure a real part of our lives? Share your opinion,
--Plus, jobless claims. Investors and traders get their first chance to react. Also we're going beyond the hiring, to wages. What are people making these days? We'll have the answer for you.
