Perhaps a better article would be "Why do the people hate Wall Street"  and the facts that could go into the article to support it could be 1).  "false speculation" causing Oil prices to rise because somebody "thinks" or "fears" 2). the Government bailing them out & then the WS firms rewarding themselves with "multimillion dollar bonuses" on the taxpayers dime.  These are just a couple of ideas that could be used to support the article that are costing the people $$$$ & many to struggle in their every day lives.

Fast and Furious gun running to Mexican Drug Cartels while blaming the availability of guns in Mexico on private owners, Solyndra, NSA spying, IRS harassment, and the complete failure of the new Healthcare legislation due to the fact that many lost their copays because of the new requirements, chronically high unemployment, spending our country into bankruptcy, looking weak on the world stage, allowing 4 people to be brutally killed at Benghazi and blaming it on a youtube film instead of terrorists, and a complete lack of leadership and competence is going to be Obama's legacy.

Who wrote this crap?  All except for Sears, Penneys and Radio Shack all these stocks are still paying dividends and are good for lots of people.  The only reason that the three above are not doing so well is that the press likes to slam them all the time instead of leaving them alone to solve their problems.  US business and wall street  really do suck !!!

hey lampert, or any of your executives that might read this YOU DON T NEED MEMBERSHIPS ( not a country club eddie ) what you do need is better pricing better customer service and better promotions, quit trying to be greedy and make a lot of money per unit of sale and get back to selling at a lower price and sell in VOLUME , VOLUME WORKS IT ALWAYS HAS, that is what made sears a top company before you took over. DON T NEED MEMBERSHIPS NEED COMMON SENSE

I avoid Walmart but unfortunately they come to town and cause the other stores to close so you are left with a 30 to 40 mile drive, at today's gas prices and I do make the drive because I am anti Walmart. When the Walmart that came to our town arrived, the store was a very clean place. The last 2 years – it has just gotten dirtier and dirtier. You feel as if you need to shower when you get home because it is so dirty.

PM may be a hated stock by those who hate smoking, but with a dividend rate of 4.6% and 80 billion in sales, it is not going to collapse soon.  There are purchases by insiders, not sales, and those who unload some shares are gifting them. I'll stick with it.

Wall St. is underestimating JCP...................


The stock has gone up over 80% in just the last 3 weeks. The bankers on Wall St. will make a million dollar bonus if they exceed 15% annual gain on their portfolios!! And when Sears files bankruptcy, JCP will skyrocket as they will fill the Sears void in the marketplace.


Plus Citi Bank just yesterday issued a "Buy" on the stock. Slowly JCP will get the respect it deserves and then the share price will be at a premium for those naysayers. Keep in mind....3 years ago, JCP was over $75 per share.


High risk = high ROI

Get a chance....    Look through a 100 year old Sears Catalog.  They had everything in there.   We ride around inside the space ship on one of those bicycles with the giant front tire and the little rear tire.  Problem is we keep falling off of them.

Not a single legal drug dealer listed!  The "ask your doctor" ads are working!!!  They are bringing in the dough!  Whitecoat offices and parking lots filled to capacity!  Side effects selling more FDA junk!  Hospital beds filling up.  Assisted living facilities filling up.  Wash out centers filled to capacity.  Nursing homes filled to capacity.  Funeral homes expanding trying to keep up with business.  All sorts of insurance scams blasting daily on the "ask your doctor" bos.  Reverse mortgage ready to take your house when you go into hospital.  Medicare spending tons on postage to say "this ain't covered."  Legal drug lord formularies change with the wind.  "ask your doctor" is working as planned!  Start kids on ADHD junk, have a following for life.  Let the elderly die when they stop paying taxes.
