    "The loss carry forward would have a major impact"

    It appears you're speaking of the NOL(loss carry forward) - - - - - - we're speaking about the "pass-through" companies, such as REITs, which do not pay corporate income tax.

    You'll have to explain how the "Possible REIT conversion" will help JCPenney PPS - - - - I believe they sold ALL their REIT holdings 12-18 months ago - - - - - - - it was in their financial reports - - - - - before they could sell any other real estate they would have to pay back the loans(2.25Billion) against them before they netted any cash - - - - - - I'm not the most knowledgeable poster on any potential tax ramifications, but am betting you aren't either.

    You both preach the lack of morals

    I don't know whether this is a "lack of morals" but it does give you insight in the mind of "HonorJCP" - - "Free11roam2014" - JCPenneyman85 - and other assorted ID's - - - - - - not only are we dealing with a "Sybil" personality, it's an unstable one at that - - - - - -

    I'm guessing this must be from one of MU's Golden Child hand picked upper management

    The Revolution Will Not Be Televised. Home Is Where The Hatred Is.

    Listening to smooth Bill Evans reminds me how we can all save the children. Soon it will be their time to save the world. Gil is my hero. I only wish I would have found out about him earlier. 'Pieces' speaks to me.

    There should be a limit on how many times you can change your predictions on our fate. I laugh often. Thinking of retay101. I mean please brother. In six months this procrasturbater has shifted from planning bankrupt parties (it was our last Christmas) to reorganization the beginning of 2014. Thankfully reorg has been postponed. Let us know when ok?

    When Pam's Jim passed away his corpse was wrapped and packed in dry ice and she slept with it. Not much is known about this. Pam died in '74 found on a couch.

    To beetleruss poster. The word of the day is #$%$ Window. The ability to poop in the amount of time it would normally take you to #$%$, so as not to alert guests or hosts as to what you’re truly doing.

    We're all prisoners to the way. We're all committed to the consequences whether we stand or fall. This trip of selling the soul is similar to a pyramid scheme. Or maybe three card monte. It helps to remember what I'm doing is resonating. I've been told. Perceived value.

    I can wait forever but forever is right up on us now. Home is where the hatred is.

    Had you paid attention you would have noticed my post where I indicated I check this board more often than that email address.

    You don't have to "still hear about it" - - - you can choose the ignore user option or simply not read it - - - - seems simple enough to me.

    There are certain issues that are better kept from the public eye - - - most of the time the posters on this board wouldn't be interested anyhow as it is factual, not "hype and hope" or "pump and dump"

  • Be A Top Executive By Continuously Studying The Best

    Mike Ullman, CEO of J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP), told Lindsay that leadership isn't something you want for yourself but for your people: "The most effective way to lead ... you leave behind something better than you inherited it; that's what it's about."

    Glad to have you back FRAUD - - see you've decided on using a racist persona - - - - - could have been a bit more innovative on the ID hijacking - - - - - - - personally I liked your other ID "HonorJCP" - - - - - - I believe that was the one you wanted to call your customers "Mongrels" but ended up with "Moguls"


    Didn't think that one through very well though did you - - - - - you said I made two shopping trips to JCPenney every decade and then noted I wished my store ran as well - -- - - - - -

    Why would I go to another store to shop JCPenney if I managed one????

    Jcp wants Walmart trained people

    I've posted many times before - - - even if you buy into every other part of the "turnaround" story, the one part they've missed that is mandatory for success is getting the support and involvement of the employees - - - - - this is an impossibility with "part time hamburger flippers"!! - - - - they are there until they get enough money to pay their fines, make this months rent payment, keep the repo man from taking back their car, find a real job, etc.

    If you're counting on a "shoe leather" survey of "Don't you just love your job here" - - - - ask yourself what you would say to a stranger walking up to your desk with the same question - - - - - here's a hint - - - - you're probably going to hedge your bet that a truthful answer may get you fired so you put that "genuine" smile on your face - - - - say "Why of course I love it here and will probably be here forever" and by the way - - - "sales are way up" and "from what I've observed, profits are through the roof" - - - - - - - - - and I've made several copies of our latest financial report to pass out to interested Yahoo Message Board posters.

    FRAUD is probably either counting down the days until he can scam JCPenney out of his 40 year pension - - - - - -or he has his Thesaurus dogeared from looking up synonyms for "buck tooth buckies, slovenly behemoths, and blue haired dregs" so his customers don't get tired of the same old insults - - - - - - after all he is MR. RETAIL !!!!

    Name one that's not a locally owned business.
    I think these would fit in the category of people I would not trust to deal with and are not a locally owned business.

    I just sent an email to you at your ID + yahoo with my "credentials"- - - - - I check this board more often than the email - - - - don't mind if you share the infor(for what it's worth) with Golden but would appreciate if it didn't go any further.

    I'm always ultra-careful of info I post on this board - - - -

  • retayl101 retayl101 Jul 17, 2014 2:55 PM Flag

    Golden - - - - - true story - - - - - Skrewed knows the store I'm talking about - - - - - - very minor issue, but an employee of mine visited the hair salon, purchased a small bottle of shampoo for a couple of bucks - - - - - took the price label off when she got home and YUP - - - - it was a manufacturers FREE SAMPLE - - - marked not for sale !!!

    I suggested she bring this to the appropriate peoples attention - - - - - - YUP you guessed it - - - - - - NO RESPONSE - - - - I then suggested she contact the manufacture just to make sure they knew of the practice - - - - - - - next time she went to the store the SPECIAL SALE BARREL was gone.

  • retayl101 retayl101 Jul 17, 2014 2:03 PM Flag

    Not asking you violate any confidence with Golden but assume this is the gist of the laws referenced - - - - - I'm very familiar with this segment of the retail law but over the years I've found it to be more of a "paper tiger" seldom enforced and then only by a class action suit from consumers.
    FTC Enforcement of Deceptive Advertising Laws

    Over the years, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has taken action against many businesses accused of engaging in false and deceptive advertising.

    Consumers often have the right to sue advertisers under state consumer protection laws. For example, someone who buys a product relying on a deceptive ad might sue in small claims court for a refund or join others (sometimes tens of thousands of others) to sue for a huge sum in another court.

    Deceptive Pricing

    The two pricing practices most likely to get your business into trouble are: making incorrect price comparisons with other merchants or with your own "regular" prices, or offering something that is supposedly "free" but in fact has a cost.

    Price Reductions

    Offering a reduction from your usual selling price is a common sales technique. But the reduced price is misleading unless the former price is the actual, bona fide price at which you offered the article. For example, if you announce a new product for $129, but sell it to wholesalers as if it were a $79 product, and similarly discount it to direct customers, the $129 price never really existed -- and you have broken the law. It misleads customers into thinking they are receiving a discount.

    As far as "cringing during Black Friday" - NO I did NOT! I enjoyed helping customers and seeing how excited they were to be shopping. In fact, the time flew by. It was hectic to be sure, but really not a bad time.

    Words spoken oft by true retailers - - - - - - - - Have been in retail all of my life - - - - - the most fun/enjoyable/rewarding was what left you most exhausted - - - - have never heard ANYONE that was a true retailer EVER refer to his customers/income source as "dregs, buck tooth buckies, slovenly behemoths, pains in the neck, or any of the other dozen names FRAUD85 has used from time to time" - - - - - - - - hence the title "FRAUD85"

    Anyone that believes Fraud ever has a point, ask yourselves how comfortable you would feel walking out of a store with him behind you, making faces and muttering those names behind your back - - - - no matter how hard you try to hide personality traits such as that - - - - - - - given a few days, you are as transparent as glass - - it's no sin, not everyone is cut out for the low pay, high turnover, demanding job of working with/for the public in retail - - - - - think of all the bad service you've received from retailers/public servants, wrap them into one entity and you have our loyal poster FRAUD85

    the form was filed on 6-30-2014 - - - - - the suit was filed on 7-2-2014 - - - the amended form was refiled on 7-11-2014 - - - - - - - uh-oh !

    Let me amend my error:
    the form was filed on 6-30-2014 - - - - - the "investigation was announced" on 7-2-2014 - - - the amended form was refiled on 7-11-2014 - - - - - - - uh-oh ! Didn't really change the "dots to be connected" refiling of the forms.

    I wouldn't think damages would be that hard to prove - - - - stock was 40 bucks - - - they watched it drop to 9 bucks - - - - - - even the bottom third of "attorney school" shouldn't have a problem.

    Ullmans "shill money" purchase never was anything more than a red herring - - - - not substantial enough to mean anything , just a feel good for the sheeple.

    SSS = "Crush" - - - - not likely - - - - - probably in line with their projections and then add the 2% for the accounting "enhancement" - - - - - - which almost everyone will have forgotten about and start dancing in the streets that the "turnaround" is right on track.
