    Pumpers out in full force after a 400 point market run -up

    How much did JCP lose this quarter pumpers? Funny how unimportant that seems to
    be but for the sake of clarity lets call it 200 million. How about cash burn and
    debt pumpers how about throwing out those numbers?
    How about 11 freaking quarters of billions of dollars in loses?
    JCP buyouts and crowded stores and bond buying are comical it takes one visit to any
    JCP or Sears to realize these ancient retail tombs are absolutely irrelevant in
    today's retail market place. JCP marketing their overpriced garbage labels as
    Private labels is as comical as JCP pretending to have a home dept with a future.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

      JCP and SHLD both face two trends which are killing department stores. 1. People aren't as interested in one-stop shopping any more, 2. The American middle class has markedly less money to spend now than ten years ago. ☺☺☺

      • Certainly that's a big part of why JCP and SHLD are failing in today's market place.
        The trend is also lower prices all around from Macy's and others that were once considered
        to be expensive are continually lowering prices. Wallmart Target have really upgraded
        there clothing lines and the prices are very consumer friendly. Niche retails like
        Gap Forever 21 Urban Outfitters and so many others are constantly running sales and
        and are generally keeping prices down to compete. This a trend that will continue
        and JCP for their level of clothing can't discount deep enough.
