Investors dumping Sears Holdings in front of earnings

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

Shares of Sears Holdings (SHLD -7%) are being sold off in front of the company's earnings report scheduled for tomorrow.

The department store sector has suffered through a period of decimated margins due to slow store traffic and a heavily promotional atmosphere. It's a toxic mix that Sears is unlikely to have escaped.

Today's report from Dillard's did very little to calm the fears on the sector.
