Michael E. Lewitt writes: Investors reacted with joy when Sears Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: SHLD) announced on November 6 that it would sell 200 to 300 of its stores to a real estate investment trust (REIT) in 2015.
It was the “Big Bang” announcement investors had been waiting for since hedge fund billionaire Eddie Lampert combined Sears with the bankrupt retailer Kmart a decade ago.
