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?
