|About: Sears Holdings Corporation (SHLD)|By:, SA News Editor

Sears Holdings (SHLD) has sold close to a dozen of its most profitable stores in the U.S. and Canada as it looks to unlock value for shareholders, according to the WSJ.

The company maintains the upfront cash payment outweighs the loss of operating income.

Wall Street is divided on the Sears strategy. Some analysts see a windfall for investors, while others think selling too many profitable stores leaves the company in trouble.
