Sears plans 50 to 80 more store closures as challenges mount

CNBC
Lauren Hirsch
2 hrs ago

Even as Eddie Lampert is trying to keep Sears alive, the company is preparing for its potential doom.

Sears' chairman, Eddie Lampert earlier this month unveiled his $4.6 billion proposal to save Sears by buying the company out of bankruptcy through his hedge fund, ESL Investments. Such a deal is likely its last chance at survival. If Lampert can't buy the company, it will likely need to liquidate and sell itself in parts. But as the deal faces increasing legal and financing challenges, the company is bracing for the reality it may not come together at all.

Sears' advisers told the bankruptcy court judge this week the company is already planning to close a number of stores and solicit liquidation bids as a protection, should Lampert's effort fall apart. The retailer is weighing closing to 50 to 80 more stores at the end of the year, people familiar with the situation tell CNBC. That could bring Sears' footprint closer to 400. Lampert has said he wants to buy roughly 500 stores.

The company filed for bankruptcy on Oct. 15 with a little under 700 stores. At that time it said it would close 142 unprofitable stores, then in November it announced the closure of 40 additional stores.

The plans are a precaution. It is possible that Sears averts further store closures should Lampert seal a deal to buy the company and its 500-store footprint. But they are an implicit acknowledgement of the potential bleak reality that may lie soon in Sears' future.

Lampert has yet to formalize and submit financing to support his offer for Sears, people familiar with the situation tell CNBC. Advisers spent much of Monday in active negotiations discussing the asset-backed loan that would support Lampert's offer. Lending to Sears provides bank underwriting fees, but it also would require confidence in the business strategy of a company that hasn't turned a profit since 2010.

Without formal financing, Sears last weekend missed its chance to be named a so-called stalking horse bidder in an auction for Sears. It still has until Dec. 28 to submit a formal offer for the company. Being named the stalking horse in a bankruptcy sale typically affords a number of perks, like a role in setting bidding procedures and a break-up fee should that bid be topped.

Meantime, Lampert is financing $1.8 billion of his bid by rolling over debt he already holds in the company. But that too carries uncertainty — and, now, formal pushback.

Some of Sears' creditors have taken aim at some Sears' transactions under Lampert's leadership, including his spinoff of Lands' End and transactions with Seritage Growth Properties, the real estate investment trust Lampert created through select Sears properties. Those creditors told the bankruptcy court judge this week they plan to contest a credit bid.

It remains unclear whether Lampert would be willing to backstop the credit portion of the bid with cash, should he not be able to use debt to fund it. It therefore remains unclear how else he would finance the bid.

Meantime, ESL is asking as part of its bid that the creditors agree to another stipulation: a release from lawsuits over his past transactions. With the threat of litigation looming large, that too is far from sure.

A spokesperson for Sears declined to comment.

In statement provided to CNBC, a spokesperson for ESL Investments said, "ESL Investments is working around the clock to try to keep Sears in business with a going concern proposal that would save tens of thousands of jobs and provide severance protections for eligible workers."

Podcast - http://www.SilverDoctors.com/precious...

Welcome to this week's Metals & Markets, I am your host James Anderson of SD Bullion.

Gold and silver showed strength this week as the Federal Reserve nudged the Fed funds rate 25 basis points higher and various equities in the US stock market reached bear market territory. Silver spot price appears to be closing the week around $14.70 oz, while gold spot price should close near the $1,260 US dollar per troy ounce mark.

With us this week is a returning guest to the podcast... topics discussed include the recent Fed funds rate increase, the recent rollover in major US stock values, what is in store for the US dollar and gold in the year to come. The US real estate market, and finally a micro level discussion on Elon Musk and Tesla.

Stick around for the end of the interview for little Friday humor as we close with a heavily edited recent interview between Elon Musk and HBO's Axios program ( full, unedited HBO Axios interview here: https://youtu.be/4qUA3nNWyCg?t=50 ).

With us this week, a returning guest, Mr. Dave Kranzler of InvestmentResearchDynamics.com

A bit further background on Tesla in 2018 from early October:

The Scale of US Debt & Warren Buffet On Gold
Junius Maltby


Streamed live 10 hours ago
For the first time since I was 7 years old - I hold no metal.
For reasons far beyond my control, and circumstances beyond my dominion, I have no more metals save for some older silver Crowns and schillings, a few dollars and halves. Yes even my ultra high relief was sold to a friend with the chance to buy back later.
At this juncture in my timeline I am reconciling with the realization of the absence of financial fall backs and securities. I have little left as far as liquid assets, have relinquished my equity in my home and have begun a search for another home and a loan for it.
Many will offer opinions or input. Save it. My plan is simple:
Continue to work as hard as I can.
Save some cash
Put small amounts into key crypto currency that I have learned to trade and move over the last few years.
Hold out for another bull run in crypto that I believe is coming as a result of increased governments debts and the world money supply finding its way into the fixed supply of crypto.
Cash out the crypto at a key point and move the wealth into physical assets such as GOLD, SILVER and RENTAL REAL ESTATE.
Fingers crossed - might die tonight so we'll see right?

Gold and Silver Weekly Update w/e 22nd Feb 2019
Illuminati Silver


Published on Feb 23, 2019
https://www.illuminatisilver.com

https://www.illuminatisilver.com/sign...

Today is Sunday 24th February 2019 and we are providing our gold and silver weekly update for the week ending 22nd February.

Gold rose $4 last week from $1323 to $1327 having hit a high of $1,346 and a low of $1,320. In sterling terms gold finished the week at £1016 that’s down £10 and in Euros it closed at 1,171 Euros that’s unchanged on the week.

Silver rose 14 cents from $15.78 to $15.92 having hit a high of $16.20 and a low of $15.75. In sterling terms, it closed at £12.19 that’s down 5 pence and in Euros it closed at 14.04 euros that’s up 0.08 euros.

The Gold to Silver Ratio fell slightly from 83.8:1 to 83.4:1
The Dow Jones closed on Friday at 26,031 up 181 points on the day and up 148 points on the week, and the NASDAQ closed at 7,527 up 67 points on the day and up 55 points on the week and the S&P 500 closed at 2792 up 17 points on the day and up 17 points on the week.

Brent Crude rose 87 cents from $66.25 to $67.12 and US Light Crude rose $1.67 from $55.59 to $57.26

The dollar index stands at 96.50 that’s down 0.40 on the week.

So, let’s take a look at next week’s economic reporting of consequence:

• On Tuesday we have the consumer confidence index for Feb with a forecast of 124.

• On Wednesday we have factory orders for December

• On Thursday GDP for Q4 with a forecast of 2% plus further comments by Jerome Powell – the FED Chair.

• Friday which is when most data is being revealed includes: Personal income for January, Consumer spending for December, Core inflation for December, Markit Manufacturing PMI for Feb and the ISM manufacturing index for Feb, plus Consumer Sentiment Index and Motor Vehicle sales also for February.

In conclusion, last week we stated that we could see gold breach $1325 which it did, and this week we can see it attempt to migrate towards that $1550 level and silver attempting once again to move above $16 and test last weeks highs. Regardless of this, we still foresee some consolidation with a slight upward bias, but really nothing to get too excited about. Dollar dependence for now is still the name of the game.

Gut-wrenching photos show General Motors employees comforting each other and protesting as the last Chevrolet Cruze comes off the assembly line at their Ohio plant which is closing after 52 years - leaving 1,700 people without a job

  • The last compact car has rolled off the line at General Motors' massive assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio on Wednesday afternoon
  • There was a somber mood inside the plant as workers watched the final compact car making its way down the assembly line
  • The Cruze, which as been made at the plant since 2011, will still be made in Mexico for markets outside the U.S
  • GM is eliminating all 1,700 hourly positions, perhaps for good, at the factory
  • It is the first of five North American auto plants that it intends to shut down by early next year

REVEALED: Three MILLION pay-TV subscribers stopped their service in 2018, as customers opt for cheaper options like Netflix and Hulu

  • Pay-TV companies lost a whopping 2.9million customers in 2018
  • It was double the loss of 1.5million subscribers in 2017
  • Many customers are going without pay-TV altogether and instead of opting for lower-cost options like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime
  • According to researchers pay-TV companies peaked in popularity in 2012 and since then have lost a net 10million customers
  • However that's been offset by growth in the internet-delivered 'skinny' TV packages which has a total of seven to eight million subscribers in 2018

Trump'$ Bearish US Dollar Take | Ronnie Stoeferle, In Gold We Trust Report
SilverDoctors


Published on Mar 8, 2019
2019 Roaring Lion Silver salehttps://SDBullion.com/roaring
Bullion Podcast http://www.SilverDoctors.com/precious... Choppy week for the monetary precious metals both beginning last Sunday evening in Asian markets down yet they are closing this week off with strength.

Gold looks to be finishing it's week with a spot price just over $1,300 fiat Federal Reserve notes per troy ounce.

While the silver spot price appears to finishing around $15.40 US dollars per troy ounce.

This week, we have a returning guest to the podcast, one of the co-authors of the free information packed 'In Gold We Trust' annual report.

Ronnie Stoeferle drops by to share with us some recent highlights and notes from their organization's annual meeting.

Ronnie we are recording this interview on Tuesday, March 5th at 10 AM eastern time, and thus far in 2019 we have seen strength in both silver and gold prices up until this recent rollover in price last week.

What are you seeing in terms of the price action?

You mentioned in your Meeting Notes that you are seeing a potential rollover in the recently rising Gold Silver Ratio... looks like we may have peaked at 87 late last year, now around 85.

When this next bull market in bullion peaks, are you expecting to see this ratio tighten beyond its 2011 low point? Possibly again moving into the 20s or teens for a timeframe?

GOLD SILVER RATIO now and then - https://SDBullion.com/gold-silver-ratio

There is still a large crowd of extrovert market callers who are calling for massive US dollar strength to come, yet juxtapose that against President Trump's disdain for how 'strong' the US dollar is now.

What did you think about President Trump's recent comments on too much fiat US dollar strength at the moment?

Are you expecting any currency agreement curveballs from the current China-US trade meetings?

Everything but commodities bubble chart looks like we are bottoming out and regressing back to mean at some point in the 2020s.

That said, I see the CME Group the owners of the COMEX NYMEX have extended their non-US bank central bank clients to actively trade critical price discovery markets for physical commodity prices, FX trading, interest rates, and other financial products:

https://www.SilverDoctors.com/gold/go...

This coming end of May 2019, you all are again planning on publishing your annual In Gold We Trust Report for free so can you give us a preview of what free content listeners can look forward to finding there?

Gold and Silver weekly update for w/e15th Mch 2019
Illuminati Silver


Published on Mar 16, 2019
https://www.illuminatisilver.com

https://www.illuminatisilver.com/sign...

Today is Saturday 16th March 2019 and we are providing our gold and silver weekly update for the week ending 15th March.

Gold rose $2 last week from $1299 to $1301 having hit a high of $1,311 and a low of $1,290. In sterling terms gold finished the week at £979 that’s down £19 and in Euros it closed at 1,148 Euros that’s down 7 euros.

Silver fell 5 cents from $15.34 to $15.29 having hit a high of $15.53 and a low of $15.14. In sterling terms, it closed at £11.50 that’s down 28 pence and in Euros it closed at 13.50 euros that’s down 0.15 euros.

The Gold to Silver Ratio rose from 84.7:1 to 85.1:1

The Dow Jones closed on Friday at 25,848 up 138 points on the day and up 398 points on the week, and the NASDAQ closed at 7,688 up 57 points on the day and up 280 points on the week, and the S&P 500 closed at 2822 up 14 points on the day and up 79 points on the week – all 3 indices reversing and improving upon the previous week’s decline

Brent Crude rose $1.42 from $65.74 to $67.16 and US Light Crude rose $2.46 cents from $56.07 to $58.52

The dollar index stands at 96.59 that’s down 0.44 on the week.

As far as both the gold and silver markets are concerned at present, they are basically dictated by the dollar value; though those dealing in sterling will have seen more favourable buying prices recently because of the slight strengthening of sterling against the US dollar – though until the outcome of Brexit is fully known, the uncertainty or fear factor will continue to prop up prices which otherwise would probably be around 10% lower than they actually are in sterling terms.

So, what do we have on the economic calendar for next week:

• Monday - Home Builders Index for March
• Tuesday – Factory orders for January
• Wednesday - All-important Federal Reserve announcement on Interest rates followed by Jerome Powell’s Press Conference – naturally we see no amendment or change to the interest rate, either up nor down, but analysts once again will be listening quite keenly to tone.

• Thursday – Current account deficit figures for Q4

• Friday – Markit Manufacturing and Services Flash PMI for March, Existing Home Sales for February and the Federal Budget for February.

So in conclusion, there will be some volatility prior to the FED’s announcement on Wednesday though we would expect sentiment to be marginally more positive for gold and silver prices than negative – having said that of course we still lean towards the assessment that these prices will fall below current levels once all of the controversial economic and political news is out of the way and a deal is eventually struck with China.

The Golden Jackass is Back | Jim Willie, part 1 of 2

Podcast - http://www.SilverDoctors.com/precious...

Silver and Gold prices were beaten down for most the week with the sharpest selloffs occurring yesterday Thursday [3/28/2019] around 8:30 AM morning eastern time.

The spot price for silver is closing the week around $15.20 an ounce while gold spot price is closing around $1294 fiat US dollars per troy ounce.

The palladium spot price saw a massive selloff dropping nearly $200 US dollars per troy ounce this week. Palladium appears to be closing around $1,388 fiat Federal Reserve notes per ounce. Not much has changed fundamentally for dwindled tight palladium supply levels so it will be interesting to see how long it takes for palladium to retrace the Pd spot price losses we witnessed this week.

Platinum again remains floundering around the $850 range close to where it ended last week. Pt is still hovering around its cheapest price level versus gold in over 110 years.

Moving on to this week's guest to the show. It has been almost a full year since we last spoke with Jim Willie, author of the Hat Trick Letter and purveyor of Golden-Jackass.com.

Silver Doctor's own Paul “Half Dollar” Eberhart spoke with Jim at length today. We will break this discussion up into two parts.

Be sure to subscribe and click the alert button on the Silver Doctors youtube channel to be alerted when part two goes live early next week. Part one with Jim Willie is coming up following this brief message from our show's sponsor.
