    Prayer to St. Anthony for lost items

    How nice. A Short took the time to pray for a Long...are you Sirius?
    You should know the Lord loves the fool, but hates the foolishness. That goes for His Saints as well.
    Never take His name in vane, nor his Saints, as bad things will befall you.
    Save the prayers for those that truly need it.
    Just some advise from a Long to a Short. You may delete this error, is the good news brother..

    Problem with that theory are the Institutions that are not filing SEC form 4 disposals, or the JCP insiders, that hold thousands of shares. Add to that there are no further downgrades to the JCP debt numbers, a sign that those rating agencies feel there is stability to the JCP picture for now, and that 'massive debt' the author would have you believe, is not all that massive.
    They like the JCP longs and shorts are keeping a watchful eye. Any positive news coming out of JCP could easily move this company back to double digits where many believe it should be.
    Ain't it interesting?

    What's also interesting is why certain individuals here feel it's their job to constantly back up the dump truck to unload.

    I can answer that...There is NO credible source of info that depicts whether or not the JCP turnaround is gaining traction. Lots of talking heads speculating on whether the company will achieve a gain in same store sales and more importantly will JCP report profits, or close to profit numbers soon...
    Longs are betting they will, while the shorts think not...
    That's why I've been saying "waiting on Ullman".

    "stuck on the belief that improved retail sales automatically translates into apparel sales"

    What part of the article did you miss?...Was it this??

    Reuters) - U.S. retail sales rose 5.5 percent from the day after Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve as solid demand for women's apparel, jewelry and casual dining offset surprisingly sluggish sales of electronics, MasterCard said in its holiday spending report.

    "retail sales rose 5.5%"..."surprisingly sluggish sales of electronics". Cheeez.

    Gee, I hate to be a butinski, but JCP should have blowout sales, cause...

    Reuters) - U.S. retail sales rose 5.5 percent from the day after Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve as solid demand for women's apparel, jewelry and casual dining offset surprisingly sluggish sales of electronics, MasterCard said in its holiday spending report.

    The report, which tracks spending by combining sales activity in MasterCard's payments network with estimates of cash and other payment forms, offers an early look into how the holiday season shaped up. Official government data and results from retailers will not be available until next month.

    The results of the MasterCard Advisors SpendingPulse report are the latest sign that a stronger economy boosted spending during the holiday season. An improving jobs market, with unemployment at a six-year low, and falling gasoline prices are among the factors helping to spur spending.

    The National Retail Federation, the industry's main trade body, is forecasting that retail sales will increase 4.1 percent during November and December, the biggest jump since 2011.

    The MasterCard report highlighted how uneven the gains are, with some surprising winners and losers.

    Casual dining and lodging were among the strongest categories, posting double-digit and nearly double-digit year-on-year sales growth, respectively, from "Black Friday," the day after Thanksgiving, through Dec. 24.

    The results reflected a growing consumer preference for "experience" over goods, Sarah Quinlan, a senior vice president at MasterCard, said. The "economy is very strong but they are spending in a different way," she said in an interview.

    Contrary to some experts who predicted a strong showing for electronics, the category was among the weakest, with sales "basically flat" from Black Friday to Dec. 24 and in negative territory when looking at sales starting on Nov. 1, according to the report.

    While A duck's quack doesn't echo,
    and no one knows why.

    The JCP shorts say JCP will fold
    But can't tell you when...

    Ergo, when shorts go duck hunting, they always come back empty handed.

    I heard, the JCP sub is resting on the bottom. Captain said, "we'll rise soon and torpedo the shorts, poor beestards, won't know what hit them".

    So the shorts are winning, that's the theme?
    "J.C. Penney Co. Inc.’s (NYSE: JCP) short interest grew from more than 99.01 million shares to almost 103.92 million in the heart of the holiday shopping season, nearly erasing the decline in short interest in the previous period. It was 34.7% of the float. The days to cover slipped to less than six. The share price ended the two-week period about 20% lower than were it began. Shares closed most recently at $6.50, in a 52-week range of $4.90 to $11.30, and are down almost 29% year-to-date".
    Mark this...It won't always be so...Shock and Awwwww coming soon. I'd worry about the 'greed factor'. Those sell shares are being bought by people that are not naïve.
    No insiders bailing out?...No Institutions, mutuals bailing out?...heh heh heh...Keep telling yourself it's safe to be short.

    Met life?...I sold insurance for them some years back. Why are you thinking of shorting Met life?
    At any rate, Merry Christmas and I hope a better year for us all in 2015.

    5 hours to get there. G/L.
    We need more media hype.

  • You know where JCP stands on the recovery road, improving every quarter, any announcement of profit numbers and doable?
    I ask you Ladies and Gentlemen, what would you do?.

    “We are very pleased with our third-quarter earnings, even though the sales performance fell short of our expectations,” Terry J. Lundgren, Macy’s chief executive, said in a statement. “We knew we were up against very strong third-quarter sales growth for our company last year.”
    Still, Macy’s lowered its expectations for the rest of 2014. The company forecast that earnings per diluted share for the year would range from $4.25 to $4.35, down from its earlier forecast of $4.40 to $4.50.

    Macy's a $193.00 stock? JCP a $20.25 stock? The voting booths will remain open till midnight tomorrow, even though the stock market closes promptly at one PM...

    Waiting on Ullman and profitability

    What are the odds that Macy's stock will triple? If* JCP posts any kind of profit, a triple is a possibility.
    But then again, that's just me being an optimist, along with some mutuals and insiders that appear to be staying the course as well.
