What goes around, comes around: After warm trends were cited in the better-than-expected earnings report of some majpr retailers, analysts warn that the extra consumer dollars pulled into Q1 may mean there is less to go around in Q2. Home Depot (HD -2.6%) may stand front in center of the trend as witnessed by April's numbers showing slowing growth, with Target (TGT -0.7%) and Sears Holdings (SHLD +3.5%) also at risk of a weather-inspired bounce down.

    You know, I missed this bit of news in Jan and Feb (sarcasm). I was constantly told during this period that the economy was roaring back thanks to Barry O's economic policy. Now, 5 months later, we are being told something that a blind mouse would have seen - that April and May was moved up to Jan,Feb and parts of March.

    Buy Sears not only for the retail but for the holding company. As I posted before if you look at the buy backs from Sears at much higher prices does not sort of tell you something....that is good.


    Lampert owns common shares like all shareholders his value will appreciate as the stock goes up like all common shareholders.
