Time to put a retail stock in your shopping bag?

Joining TheStreet’s panel of investment experts, Bob Lang, a Real Money contributor and co-portfolio manager of Trifecta Stocks said he is keeping an eye on retail stocks ahead of the election. While he noted Amazon  (AMZN) - Get, Inc. Report and Lululemon  (LULU) - Get Lululemon Athletica Inc Report are obvious picks, he suggested investors expand their definition of retail to include fast food giants including Chipotle  (CMG) - Get Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. Report and McDonald’s  (MCD) - Get McDonald's Corporation Report.

With such a large and diverse selection of stocks, how should the average investor prioritize?

Lang said to focus on the companies that have the best online strategies, naming Walmart  (WMT) - Get Walmart Inc. Report and Target  (TGT) - Get Target Corporation Report.

“They're going to have a windfall of sales coming into their holidays. We just added, actually this weekend in trifecta, that we added Walmart just yesterday, and it's starting to do real well for us, and we think that the stock has got some legs into the end of the year,” Lang said.
