Shares of Bon-Ton Stores (BONT -1.4%) rebound sharply following a horrendous reaction during the pre-open  - down 16% briefly at one point - on weak Q2 results. Losses widened due to debt-retirement charges and a continuing decline in revenue, although same-store sales managed to show slight improvement. The company also lowered its EPS guidance for fiscal 2012, and sees comparable store sales in a range of flat to up 1.25%.
