Timing is a major consideration for the proposed spinoff of Sears Canada by Sears Holdings (SHLD) because the distribution of shares will be a taxable event even though no cash passes hands. At issue, a current dividend tax rate of 15% that is slated to jump to 43.4% next year unless Congress jumps in.

    If all goes well and Sears Holdings turns into a Berkshire Hathaway 100 shares of Sears stock will be worth $11,900,000 in 20 years.

    It appears Sears is going to have too much cash on their hands. What will Lampert do with the access....you got it buy back shares until there is nothing left.
    ESL and RBS Lampert's hedge funds will all be together and one with Sears Holdings.
    Sears Holdings will be the investment vehicle.
