The giant retailer's charts indicate it's a buy.
Sears will be making some headlines later this week.
Plus other sectors to watch in this rotation.
These companies need to start thinking about the shopping environment of the future.
There's a pullback coming, and Amazon and Walmart are prime examples.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened, a continuing headwind for companies that derive much from non-U.S. territories and regions. The price of crude oil +$3.85 on the OPEC agreement -- a feature of today's trading session. Gold down $15 to $1,175. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.06, corn down $0.01, soybeans down $0.10 (finally correcting the big advance) and oats up $0.01. Lumber up $1. Bonds got taken to the woodshed. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note rose by eight basis points and the long end climbed by a like amount. The 2s/10s spread widened by six bps to 128 basis points. Municipals got hit. Large losses, again in closed-end muni bond funds. Stay away!  High yield was modestly higher in price and lower in yield. Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  down $0.02 cents. Banks responded to rising rates and a steeper yield curve. I am still in my short rental in Citigroup (C) , JP Morgan Chase (JPM) and Bank of America (BAC) . Brokerages were the "world's fair" as the Mnuchin hire (former Goldman partner) as Treasury secretary kindled the animal spirits in Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) . Insurance companies prospered. Long Hartford Financial (HIG) recovered. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) , lagged. Auto stocks were weak. See Peak Autos and disarray in auto lending markets.  Energy stocks exploded. Retail was conspicuously weaker with only Best Buy (BBY) on my screen, higher in share price. JC Penney (JCP) off only by a nickel. (I am bidding $9ish for JCP). Target (TGT) , Walmart (WMT) and Coach (COH) downside leaders. Old tech was noticeably weak - International Business Machines (IBM) , a downside feature. Consumer staples were weaker and my fav short in the sector, Coca-Cola (KO) was down 2% at a new y
We have actual data that show things might be better.
Sears appeared to be a loser in what has been a solid start to the holiday shopping season.

Novice Trade: Walmart Real Money Pro($)

I like WMT to run toward its 52-week high as we head into Christmas and may go higher.
