Hat tip to Dr. Paul Price, who occasionally comments here under various pseudonyms, for pointing out how far the share price of Sears (Nasdaq: SHLD) had fallen; it closed at $33.82 per share today. The last time I wrote a post about Sears, on August 28th ("The Mystery of Sears"), the stock had closed at $90.62. In that post, I wrote that I didn't understand the long investment thesis for Sears, but was wary of betting against the stock since so many well-respected value investors were bullish on it. Maybe they saw something in Sears lesser investors didn't? The mystery remains.
