Excellent! I couldn't exactly see buying the stock since Sears is now about the third or fourth biggest retailer, but with a remembered brand. I don't think the Kmart purchase helped them, but that is something that could go in a liquidation (and I don't think that likely). They could turn it around, and have, but because I think margins will tighten, even with a reasonably healthy economy, I looked elsewhere.

I also couldn't understand why the 10/2017 bonds were selling about 3.5% more than the 10/18 (those dates are approximate). It seems like a good short-term bet and is a substitution for some of my ST treasuries. If the company does improve, so should the bonds.

Thank you VERY much. It was a different, and better line of thinking than I used.
