Here's what's up on Thursday's Squawk on the Street:

--Retail sales. Find out how the biggest retailers in the land fared ... from Wal-mart to JC Penney to Macy's.

--We're also talking tires. There's a shortage on the road and in the showroom. See what it means in the battle for rubber supremacy between Goodyear and Cooper Tire.

--There are new numbers showing hedge funds are buying stocks again, en masse. So today's Street Poll asks if you had $250,000 to invest at one time, do you think you'd be better off in a hedge fund, or investing it yourself? Share your opinion.

--We also expect stocks to move on weekly jobless claims ahead of Friday's big number. That means we'll be watching the big caps, stocks like Caterpillar, General Electric, Microsoft and Apple.

--We'll also talk about the sectors that employ the most people in the USA.


Squawk on the Street comes to you live from the New York Stock Exchange each weekday morning at 9 a.m. ET.
