Our Best Black Friday Trades

We know how chaotic shopping can be this time of year, even when you're buying stocks.

So to make things a little easier on you, we’ve compiled the Fast Money traders' favorite retail plays -- along with recommendations from some top analysts.

It's all below. Hope you find some Black Friday bargains!

JP Morgan analyst Charles Grom

Into Black Friday, I’d take a balanced barbell approach, says JP Morgan analyst Charles Grom. What I mean by that is own a Walmart and a Dollar Tree. But on the other side of that I’d also own Kohl’s and Macy’s . The department stores have come out of favor and I think the smart trade is to go long those stocks into Black Friday.

In the luxury space I’d be cautious, he adds. I think shoppers are waiting for big sales. I was bullish on Saks but got out at $7. Right now, I’d point investors to the mid-teir deparment stores.

Citi retail analyst Kimberly Greenberger

We do think it’s going to be a blue box Christmas, says Citi retail analyst Kimberly Greenberger on Monday's Fast Money. The single highest correlating factor to spending among high end consumers is stock market returns with a 3-6 month lag. Given the rally we’ve had off the march lows I think that bodes well for a high end holiday.

The acceleration that we’re likely to see in the sales trends will likely be more dramatic on the high end. As a result I really like Tiffany . And if you’re looking for a stock to avoid, I’d avoid Aeropostale , adds Greenberger.

Patty Edwards of Storehouse

The consumer is still looking for value, says Patty Edwards on Tuesday’s Halftime Report. I’d play retail either with companies that offer consumers value, like Dollar Tree or with the best operators. And in my opinion that’s J Crew.

Pete Najarian

In the space I’m watching Nordstrom as well as TJX , adds the Pit Boss. Both have climbed but I think they both continue to work.

Joe Terranova

I like Gap, says the Liquidator. And don’t forget Amazon, as well as Visa and Mastercard .

Karen Finerman

My long trade is Children’s Place, adds the Chairwoman. I also like Walmart and Target .

Tim Seymour

I like Gap , says the Ambassador, for its Old Navy brand.

What do you think? We want to know!
