Calling all market bears: it's time for you to return in earnest.

Rising interest rates often come with a downside, people. Now bring on 2019.
Meanwhile, Sears Holdings (SHLD) may not be around to see much of 2019. A new letter by Sears CEO Eddie Lampert to the company's board hinted at looming cash problems. Lampert offered to buy the company's Kenmore appliances brand for $400 million.
