Is This American Icon Doomed?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which David Williamson, health-care editor and analyst, and Brendan Byrnes, Industrials editor and analyst, discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan and David discuss the recent bad news from Sears Holdings. The company announced that it will close up to 120 stores after a weak holiday season. Can this stock, which has been propped up since 2008 by aggressive stock buybacks, rebound, or is Sears another American icon that's poised to be a victim of changing times?
