A Sears liquidation could create some winners and over 100,000 losers

Sears Holdings Corp.’s seemingly imminent liquidation could create some winners and many losers, according to experts. With major lenders now pressing for liquidation versus reorganization, Sears (SHLD)  could soon be going out of business. The large players in the appliance category, including Lowe’s Cos. (LOW)  , Home Depot Inc. (HD) , and Best Buy Co. Inc. (BBY) , stand to gain shares and scale even if there’s a temporary discounting disruption, according to UBS analysts led by Michael Lasser.
