I feel your dislike for them, I really do. I don't even go to their stores and never have save one time just to see what they were all about.
Net income looks like they're holding on just fine. Click around on the link to see the cash flow, stock price chart, dividend history, etc. The rising dividend is certainly NOT and indicator I'd use to bolster an argument that they're going under and, while the stock price has been erratic over the last several years, it doesn't seem overly out of order given the way markets often act like a manic-depressive. I hope you haven't sold them short too much based on the info you've provided thus far. Maybe when I see Eddie Lampert or some other corporate vulture getting involved in the company, then I'll start to believe you.
