17:00 EDTSHLD, HRL, EBAYOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session in lackluster fashion as the averages opened just above yesterday’s close. There was little early reaction to the morning’s economic reports including the jobless claims data, Philadelphia Fed report, leading economic indicators, and natural gas storage change report. But by mid-day, the Dow had asserted itself as the day’s leader while the Nasdaq struggled to stain positive territory. As the afternoon progressed the Dow continued its advance, the Nasdaq hit 14-year highs, and the S&P also touched a new all-time high. ECONOMIC EVENTS: Jobless Claims data continues to trend lower, with the week of August 16 coming in at 298K vs. a consensus of 300K... The PMI Manufacturing Index Flash was strong at 58.0 for August, up 1.7 points from the July flash of 56.3. COMPANY NEWS: eBay (EBAY) rose almost 5% after a report said that a PayPal spin-off was under consideration... Hormel (HRL) gained almost 5% and hit a 52-week high after reporting better than expected earnings before the market opened... Sears Holding (SHLD) fell over 7% after reporting Q2 earnings this morning that missed on the top and bottom lines. INDEXES: The Dow closed up 60.36, or 0.36%, to 17,039.49, the Nasdaq closed up 5.62, or 0.12%, to 4,532.10, and the S&P 500 closed up 5.86, or 0.29%%, to 1,992.37.

06:44 EDTSHLDSears says targeting REIT formation in May or June
Sears said "We are continuing our efforts to develop Sears Holdings as a membership company, without the significant asset intensity of its traditional retail business. To this end, we announced in November that we have been exploring the formation of a Real Estate Investment Trust to purchase some of our properties and to manage them like a pure real estate company. While we can offer no assurances that such a transaction will be consummated, we have made progress and are proceeding towards its formation and separation, which is projected to occur in May or June of this year. We are currently targeting between 200 and 300 Sears and Kmart stores to be sold to the REIT with expected proceeds to Sears Holdings in excess of $2B. The REIT itself would be funded by equity and debt with the equity raised through a rights offering. The subscription rights would be distributed pro rata to all stockholders of record of the company, and every stockholder would have the right to participate, except that holders of the company's restricted stock that is unvested as of the record date would be expected to receive cash awards in lieu of subscription rights."
