Thanks for posting this. Awhile back, I looked at a retail play, SuperValu because someone was very bullish on their bonds. But their near $7B in debt almost made me fall out of my chair. Supervalu also does not have allot of cash on hand and they are operating on pretty thin profit margins.

Dillards on the other hand, as far as retail junk plays goes, looks allot better with a 3-1 debt to cash equity ratio. I am looking into them further and will watch for now. Definitely a much much better risk reward than some of the other plays I have come across in this credit quality pool.
