Q:On Fast Money's trader radar we look at the stock lighting up screens across Wall Street today. This department store chain began 100 years ago as a single store called 'The Golden Rule'...
Fittingly, its founder's middle name was 'Cash.'
And investors were rolling in cash today after the retailer said back-to-school discounts were driving sales.
Who is it?
A: JC Penney -- one of the only bright spots in today's dimming retail stocks. The department store was among the most active names (in a positive light) on the NYSE today.
