$80 OIL, RECORD LOW DOLLAR, STOCKS QUIET

The headline: Oil Touches Record Intraday High Of $80.18 After Supplies Fall More Than Expected.

Pete Najarian tells the panel that commodities such as oil were the main drivers of Wednesday’s market.

Karen Finerman likes ConocoPhillips (COP) as a beneficiary of $80 oil.

Guy Adami recommends Apache (APA) as a trade on crude.

On a related note, Dylan Ratigan explains that the Dow gave up a gain of 52 points to end the session lower snapping a 2-day advance. It’s Up 6.6% in 2007

THE BROTHERS BREAK OUT

The headline: Lehman Brothers (LEH), One Of Worst-Performing Financials This Year, Jumps 3%.

Pete Najarian believes the brokers have hit a bottom. He feels LEH earnings will be a big “tell” for the financial community.

The rest of the panel is left speechless. Karen Finerman says she thinks Lehman’s balance sheet is a big unknown.

Jeff Macke feels the heart of the problem is that the brokers themselves don’t know how badly they’re involved in the subprime slime.

On a related note, in this conversation Karen says the NASDAQ (NDAQ) is interesting as a stock on trading volume.

SAVE MONEY LIVE BETTER

The headline:Wal-Mart (WMT) Replaces "Always Low Prices" With "Save Money. Live Better" Ad Campaign.

Jeff Macke suggests ways in which to fix Wal-Mart. They are:

1) Focus more on value, less on low prices 
2) Spend more on store maintenance 
3) Give CEO Lee Scott the boot 

Macke doesn’t like Wal-Mart stock.

Karen Finerman feels differently. She likes WMT as a long term hold.
