I used to work at a couple of Sears and knew about 20 people who used to work at like three other ones in my area. All I could think is the workers would make way too much, they all had horrible managment, sooooo much stuff got stolen and no one cared about it either, I would go into all these Sears stores and there would be groups of 5 workers everywhere standing mingling with eachother and all these stores would do ridiculous cuts in budget instead of fire some people. ... I could go on but if all Sears are run like the ones around here it's down the crapper in my mind. Oh yeah it seems every month Sears carries one less item.

Sears Holdings CFO Craig Monaghan To Resign
Friday January 19, 2007 18:01:00 EST

(RTTNews) - Friday after the bell, Sears Holdings Corp. (SHLD), the nation's third largest broadline retailer, announced that its executive vice president and chief financial officer Craig Monaghan, will leave the company at the end of this January to return to Florida to join his family.

Monaghan, who holds an engineering degree from Lehigh University and an M.B.A. from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, joined Sears Holdings as its CFO on September 1, 2006.

Prior to joining Sears Holdings, he served as executive VP and CFO for over six years at AutoNation. Monaghan was working as CFO of iVillage.com, the women's Internet network before he took up employment at AutoNation.

Sears Holdings noted that William Crowley, chief administrative officer, executive VP and a director, will assume the additional responsibility of interim CFO until a permanent successor to Monaghan is named. Crowley had served as CFO of the company prior to the appointment of Monaghan in September 2006.

The company will begin a search to fill the CFO position immediately.

Only two days earlier, Sears Holdings announced that it hired the Best Buy executive John Walden, as executive VP, chief customer officer, effective Jan. 29, 2007. Walden will be responsible for driving customer-focused strategies and new business development for Sears Holdings.

SHLD closed Friday's regular trade up $1.49 or 0.84% at $179.52. However in the after-hours, the stock lost $0.77 and was at $178.75 on a volume of 1.52 million shares.

I must have been a sleep at the wheel.
I would have made a new entry at 166.

The tree toping tails since 1/16 is a good sign if it holds here with some additional consolidation it may be ready to move higher.

This is a major phycological barrier at this level for some reason.

Activist investor William Ackman has reportedly taken a 3.5
percent stake in Sears Holdings Corp. with a possible eye toward prompting
changes at the department store retailer.

Ackman's hedge fund, Pershing Square Capital Management, has a 5
million-share stake in Sears, according to StreetInsider.com. Sears shares have
dropped 25 percent in the past six months, on concerns about deteriorating
business fundamentals and rising competitive pressures.

The investor has previously lobbied for changes at McDonald's Corp., Wendy's
International Inc. and Target Corp. These changes focused on real estate
divestitures and other issues.

Ackman reportedly said he is looking forward to working with Sears Chairman
Edward S. Lampert, who is also a high-profile investor.

Ackman could be eyeing Sears Canada. Last November, Sears Canada
shareholders rejected Sears' $792 million takeover bid after Ackman, who owns a
large stake in the Canadian operation, wouldn't support the bid, saying the
offer was inadequate.

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Sears Holdings Corp.'s fiscal third-quarter profit tumbled 99% after declining sales at both its Kmart and Sears chains led to steep discounts. The company doesn't anticipate any significant near-term improvement.
Net income in the quarter ended Nov. 3 fell to $2 million, or 1 cent a share, from $196 million, or $1.27, a year earlier, when it had a 42-cent benefit from some total return swap investments. Sales for the Hoffman Estates, Ill.-based company declined 3.3% to $11.5 billion.

Down 9% and change pre-market.
Might bounce a bit today. Could be good for a short daytrade.

Set Doji today. Tomorrow's close will either drive this stock over par($105) or it will retrace back to the high $80's.
