6 Stocks Driving the Economy in 2012

Sears (SHLD - Get Report)

Company Profile: Sears is the parent company of Kmart and Sears. The company operates about 2,201 full-line and 1,354 specialty retail stores in the U.S. through Kmart and Sears, and about 483 full-line and specialty retail stores in Canada through its subsidiary Sears Canada.

Share Price: $39.49 (Jan. 18 Close)

Year-to-Date Increase: About 33.9%

TheStreet Ratings Grade: Sell. Sales and net income have dropped at the company; but growth has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, TheStreet Ratings analysts note.

Standard & Poor's View: Analyst Jason Asaeda is feeling much more positive about Sears' ability to win new customers under the stewardship of the company's new Lou D'Ambrosio. Asaeda expects store-level improvements to gain traction in fiscal 2013 as the company closes 100 to 120 underperforming Kmart and Sears Domestic full-line stores and increases investments on its more productive stores. Asaeda is also expecting "sharper pricing and more impactful marketing" under D'Ambrosio's leadership.
