Trader Radar - Thursday December 18th

Q: On Fast Money’s trader radar we look at the stock that was lighting up screens across Wall Street. This credit card company was originally introduced by Sears for its customers in 1985. It later revolutionized the industry by dropping annual fees and offering cashback rewards and while not every restaurant takes this card, the company is hoping Uncle Sam will. The shares jumped after the CEO asked for access to the TARP funds. Who is it?

A: On the trader radar tonight we’re watching Discover Financial Services ! The fourth-largest credit card network was among the most active names on the NYSE today.
