Let Dust Settle Before Buying Retailers: Pro

Monday, 26 Nov 2012 | 12:41 PM ET

Good news priced into retail stocks last week means investors can wait for a pullback to get back in, TheStreet CIO Stephanie Link said Monday on CNBC.

"I think that a lot of the reason retail was down today is because it was up 1.8 percent on Friday and up 4.8 percent all of last week, so it did outperform the broader averages. So I think you probably priced in the good news last week, and I think you can pick your spots," she said on "Fast Money."

Retail ETF XRT was down 1.5 percent at 12:30pm ET.
