    Conversing with him is kind of like getting something nasty stuck to the bottom of your shoe. It's real hard to scrape off. It just hangs on, and on, and on...
    .
    .
    I would hate to see what you acknowledge is a "Personal Attack".

    Perhaps you might be better served if your time were devoted to company pertinent studies.

    " I was just trying to point out a couple of facts"
    .
    .
    Still missed those facts I asked you to point out. I think you shot off your mouth, dug the hole, and have been trying to wiggle out since then.

    Rather, the focus is on an accurate reply to your own question----you asked a question that was CLEAR and SPECIFIC, ie, comparative performance for the period on a PERCENTAGE basis.

    THIS IS YOUR OWN QUESTION and which you clearly are avoiding because the answer will be shot in your foot.

    I also ask ..............................Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..............................................................................why did I allow myself to get suckered into another fruitless exercise with someone with far too much idle time and but enough reason?

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I asked no such thing !!!!! perhaps YOU should go back and attack the person who DID ask the question.

    "JC Penney is taking market share away from Macy's and other mall based stores. 3.7% boost beat all other"
    .
    .
    I'll try to keep this simple for the sake of Market and Supor and now you.

    I'm going to round off numbers for simplicity(get it)

    JCP had a 4% increase in revenues over last year = 4% of 4 Billion = 148 Million increase(36% GM??)*

    M had a 3% increae in revenues over last year = 3% of 8 Billion = 216 Million increase(40% GM??)*

    M's profit goes to upgrades to increase business. JCPenney's goes to pay bills.

    Now, tell me you would rather have 148 million instead of 216 million?

    * GM guesstimates based on prior performance

    So, why don't you try again answering your own simple question---what was M's %?
    .
    .
    Why don't you answer the question that matters to people with real money. How much revenues did each generate and how much profit. Only a genuine simpleton would call that "Dodging and Weaving".

    What's really "dodging and weaving" is you pretending that the "%" is a relevant figure at all. Quick, LOOK, over there, a SHINY red ball !!!!

  • tngenchek tngenchek Jan 9, 2015 1:15 PM Flag

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong(there should be a line of people waiting to pounce) but the expenses from the prior closings weren't all booked at once and if MEMORY serves me correctly some was booked each quarter, even this quarter.

    3------------------------2--------------------1-------------------- Attack.

  • tngenchek tngenchek Jan 9, 2015 1:13 PM Flag

    I'm going to guess the savings will be in line with the last round of store closings. They closed 33 last time and 40 this time. If we're guesstimating, add 20-25% to the prior total and you'll be in the ball park.

    How did Macy's do during this period (announced yesterday)?
    .
    .
    They made quite a few millions of dollars more in revenue. Wait a minute, I bet you wanted to pretend JCP had taken market share from M, because M's "%" was a bit lower. Now if you really want to compare the two, let's get serious and throw in things like "PROFIT" and "DEBT" and "Cash flow". Being around JCP so long you may not be familiar with what "Profit" is, soGoogle it.

    That's a real pathetic attempt at a "Gotcha". Maybe you need to concentrate more on your punctuation corrections. X246 and Truthseeker seem to need help in that department.

  • tngenchek tngenchek Jan 9, 2015 12:54 PM Flag

    I've heard of "Cherry picking" your numbers but isn't it a bit early in the year? I mean, this is only the 6th trading day.

    In retrospect maybe that will be JCP's best days of the year.

    He was drawing a conclusion and stating his opinion. You distorted that fact by calling him a liar. Savvy?
    .

    Then he, as well as you need to learn to say what you mean, not what you think. Savvy?

    When you post a headline, until you indicate otherwise everything is attributed to that headline. Stop being a Market!!

    Typical Baggie logic. They will twist squirm lie and distort before admitting they were in error. Whatever are they going to when they're wrong on JCP, curl up in a corner and die?

    The guy that shorted at $40 ........ then went on to say yahoo didn't have the delete function back then.
    I remember I tried to verify his post about the $40. and did a 3 year look back and found JCP had a high of $43.18.
    But alas that post is alllllll gone!
    ____________________________________

    Since the post never existed, it could not be gone !! because the "Remove/Delete" function didn't exist then, orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr perhaps you can prove otherwise.

    ____________________________________________________________

    I don't remember the exact source, but

    - A Quicky-mart was robbed and the responding officers arrived in time to detain a suspect a few feet from the door with a gun in one hand and money in the other. However, the suspect was so vocal and persistent in maintaining his innocence that it amused the officers to the point they played along. Finally after failing to receive acknowledgement of his obvious guilt, they thought they could at least shut him up by explaining they had irrefutable proof of his guilt in the form of a security tape, and asked if he would like to view it. A "YES" was immediately forthcoming. They escorted him back inside and started playing back the video. Is that the store clerk? "Yes" Is that the counter where you were standing? "YES it was". Is that your face on the screen? "Yes it is"

    Is that your arm?

    "Yes, BUT that's not my hand on my arm!!!!!

    I have a suspicion from that day forth the situation became known as "Pulling a Market"

    Don't Underestimate JCP!

    Who's underestimating? The guy that shorted at $40 said he did, then deleted the suggestion?
    That was recently.
    Mt Warmth then went on to say yahoo didn't have the delete function back then.
    Reminds me of that song, twistin' the night away...lol.

    It takes very little brain power to check that posts when JCP was 40 indeed did not have the "Remove" or "delete" function available, sooooooooooooooooo your hallucination/lie would still be there. Everything else you posted is simply garbage to obscure the fact, you once again shot off your mouth and couldn't back it up.

    I simply pointed out the "factual errors" in your assertion.

    I not only missed the errors you pointed out that I made, but exactly where you pointed them out. Perhaps you would be so kind as to repeat. Everything after the (=) sign is mine and what you are claiming are "factual errors" 3 - - - - 2 - - - - - 1 - - - - go

    Bloomberg: Holiday sales growth best since 2005. = Yes they said that

    Expect JCP sales growth to continue into the spring shopping season. = No they didn't say that

    However they did say the "November and December sales jumped 4.6 percent versus the same period of last year" AND we all know JCP announced they ONLY jumped 3.7 percent which means; they are lagging the competition once again.

    Better than expected job growth continues, which means more shoppers at JCP. = they didn't say that either

    Shorties are toast = No, they didn't say that either

    So sorry, I completely missed the quotation marks distinguishing what was a quote and what was an "IMO" opinion. However the "distorter of facts" would be the author of the thread. Just a little posting etiquette lesson for you. But I was glad you didn't disappoint on the fact lacking "personal attack" and you were so quick. Impressive

    You're welcome.

    RE: basic reading comprehension. You might want to brush up on exactly what that entails before your next attempt at looking the complete fool

    You forgot to tell him to "WAIT", you know, like I'm doing with your proof "I shorted at 40"
