Retail stocks rose 0.8 percent on Friday, not quite enough to put them into positive territory for the week.
The S&P Retail Index ended the session at 332.07, off 0.6 percent from its June 5 endpoint, but still 18.9 percent ahead of the 279.26 mark at which it ended 2008. Concerns about the rising cost of gasoline and the still sluggish pace of retail sales in other categories prevented store equities from building momentum last week after gains on Monday and Tuesday.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
