    I treasure David Einhorn's stock manipulations with the same fervor that I value every pearl that drops from Cramer's lips.

    Inside Penney's it is still a mess. There is still no catalog dept, so there is still a lot of running around by associates picking up customer orders and returning them to the cusomer-wherever they may be in the store (which if there's a problem, holds up any register line that register might have) The Home department is pretty, but, it's almost always empty. There are still are not enough registers. Customers are still complaining, because they are still confused about pricing and merchadise locations. Many old knowlegable associates are gone and now there are new associates to Penney's arriving every week, who learn as they go.

    Wasn't Einhorn whining about $AAPL a few months ago. Well, anyone that held $AAPL from $705 to under $400/sh hasn't earned the right to tell anyone else what to do buying or selling shares.


    $MSFT's moving in the right direction w/ or w/o Einhorn
