J.C. Penney (JCP +2.5%) CFO Ken Hannah reiterates at the Goldman Sachs Global Retailing Conference that the company should end the year with over a $1B in cash. While conceding that the retailer saw slumping traffic as a major challenge this year, the exec keeps the faith that the shops within stores concept will register with consumers. As part of its "shops" transformation, 700 similar-sized JCP stores will receive 100 shops each. Technology remains a major focus in stores, with plans to utilize RFID tagging, iPads, and refresh stations. (webcast)

    Yeah, well where did the cash come from? It certainly didn't come from earnings. Oh yeah, it came from laying off employees and selling off non-core assets. Converting real valuable assets to cash to cover up all RJ's blunders. What happens when all non-core have been liquidated? Oh, Yeah, store closings. More bloviating from the JCP regime today, stock pops a dollar then rolls back as Ron's Groupies figure out that once again they are being played.
