    J.C. Penney Needs to Prove It's Not the Next Sears

    Its short interest is about where it was during the worst of the Ron Johnson era, when that former Apple Inc. executive became CEO and made unpopular changes that devastated sales. If J.C. Penney doesn't manage to deliver real progress during the holiday spending blitz, I suspect already-fragile investor confidence is going to erode very quickly. For one, as I've noted previously, the strong economic backdrop should provide a powerful tailwind to the retail industry overall this holiday season.

    Disappointing Retail Sales Present Another Obstacle for J.C. Penney

    A sector report released early Monday morning reflects disappointing September retail sales growth of just 0.1% against an analyst consensus of 0.6%, marking a second straight month of missed estimates. Someone give me something good to say about today's US Retail Sales numbers, other than the rebound in the otherwise moribund auto sector. Clothing retailers like J.C. Penney have been feeling the pain as of late, as a decline of 2.82% in August was hardly helped by a modest 0.5% increase in September.
