Lets dissect Marvin Ellison's words, pleased with the 6.4% SSS and exceeded expectations for Gross Margins and Revenue....I say, I say, them shorts had better run, not walk for the nearest exit doors.
FRYday is comin. I say, I say...FRYYYYday.
Shouldn't the JCP shorts relocate to Macy's? JCP SSS up over 6%.
Yes, lets wait and see who's doing better.
Macy’s Reports Disappointing Sales
Department-store chain says it won’t pursue a spinoff of its real-estate assets
Updated Nov. 11, 2015 10:16 a.m. ET
Macy’s Inc. on Wednesday reported a steeper-than-expected slide in third-quarter sales and forecast declining results for the key holiday quarter, while the department-store chain said it wouldn’t pursue a spinoff of its real-estate assets.
Here on IGGY Island, we say it's Macy's miss, Kohls, Tgt down too, M causing the temporary problem...
Shorts should be hitting the big M. Ohh look M off 12%?...Guess they are.
The M story..."The department store operator posted revenue of $5.87 billion in the period, which did not meet Street forecasts. Five analysts surveyed by Zacks expected $6.15 billion."
"His daddys id retayl101"
Yes, it was retayl101 who first addressed me as 'market', to which I responded in kind by addressing him as 'retoy' so it is written so it was done.
On a scale on 1 to 10, that rates a minus 48.
I believe the earnings will be inline with projections previously announced. Looks like Macy's and others took a hit, I'm thinking JCP took a chunk out of their business.
Next earnings release is the real important one, the holiday sales numbers included..
G/L to the Longs, who believe.
"it's about to get really interesting". "And of course the many id's he carts around"
Must be at least 17!
It wasn't jealousy. it wuz those dern catfish fillets that done it.
He thinks he's Cap'n Ahab now, and JCP is the White Whale. Been hunting the creature fer over 2 years now, unsuccessfully, I might add.
BTW they just made a brand new movie about M.D. It's called MOBY Ducked.
Which is what the future holds for JCP, they ducked that B word, in a successful turnaround, lol.
1) They fudged the numbers.
2) They did fudge the numbers.
3) They most assuredly fudged the numbers.
4) They without a doubt fudged the numbers.
5) Those rotten liars should all go to jail, for fudging the numbers.
"JCP is an easy $12 by 2nd quarter of 2016"!
I did, Mark it. There's values in those Malls.
"His point is that until they sell, they have not last (or gained) anything"
"Time will tell if they won or lost".
Yes, those 2 points sound familiar.
I certainly agree.
And here's to beating expected numbers come Friday.
"BTW that little quirk of your, always having to get the last word.
Which of your many Ids will you use, Mess, or other"?
AHAAAA!! And Thank You.
"tired old repertoire" - - - happy searching"
Same to you, Ahab...after 2 plus years of "they ain't going to make it, because"
Oopsie as you would say, JCP recently bested their credit ratings, more to come I do believe.
"Pension fully funded" no money needed for the foreseeable future".
Of course after the next couple of credit upgrades, I look forward to a reorg. of their debt.
I'll be here to remind everyone.
When Ellison releases profit numbers in the not too distant future, could be next earnings after this one.
The most important indicator (holiday sales) we'll see where the price goes...
Talk about Iggy Island, heard the JCP White Whale was spotted there. "Thar she blows"
Happy hunting, remember, "I stab at thee for hates sake".
It did consume Ahab in the end.
BTW that little quirk of your, always having to get the last word.
Which of your many Ids will you use, Mess, or other?
I say, I say, are ya payin attention, Boy?
Thanks for the compliment, and a quote from one of my favorite movies, K-Pax
Jeff Bridges, and Kevin Spacey...
"Prot: I will admit the possibility that I am Robert Porter, if you will admit the possibility that I am from K-PAX. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a beam of light to catch"
Modified for you, mpic_03, as I do like your style...
I will admit the possibility that JCP might declare bankruptcy, if you admit the possibility that JCP can turn their business around.
Now if you excuse me, I have a boat to catch...
Not bad, heh?
Have a nice weekend.
"JCP is broke folks that's why they laid off 300"
That's about the worse thing you have said here...Those were management positions not from the labor force. Other retailers doing the same to reduce cost. There are 114,000 employees, and they are hiring 30,000 additional seasonal workers.
You think 300 layoffs is an indication that they are going broke?
I'm disappointed that you put that in writing, did you have your coffee yet?
Instead of the customary "welcome' mat in the front of their doors, they have a JCP 'BANKRUPT' mat to greet you.
The problem with these buffoons is that mat is so worn out, the B and A can hardly be seen now, NKR is almost all gone, and you can barely make out the T.
The only thing you can clearly read is "JCP UP" which ironically is true, since JCP is 'UP' 35% YTD.
The White Whale has been spotted just north of Iggy Island, Ahab.
Turn the ship around, sharpen up your harpoon.
2 years and counting, maybe this time you will finally catch up to him, and stab him for hate's sake.
Ignore his laughter, for he knows you will NEVER succeed.
JCP still up 34% YTD! That makes the whale laugh harder.
"Haven't been able to figure that one out myself"-

Hope this helps you to figure things out.
I blame those poisoned shti fillets you been eating. Did your Doc tell you about the flu vaccine you won't need, because of them?
