    Yet some solid individual stock gains also helped lift investors’ moods, and Sears Holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD), National Beverage (NASDAQ:FIZZ), and JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ:JBLU) were among the best performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.

    Sears Holdings (SHLD) reported earnings today, but don’t let its 6%-plus gain fool you. Sears is still “highly distressed,” at least according to one analyst.

    Sears reported a $1.28 per share loss during the fourth quarter, smaller than the $1.70 it lost a year ago, though sales dropped to $6.05 billion, down from $7.3 billion. Cowen’s Oliver Chen and team call Sears “highly distressed.” They explain:

    Overall, SHLD remains highly distressed with significant cash constraints and will continue to close a significant number of stores and will likely continue to sell other assets to stabilize the business. We believe this presents an opportunity for other department stores and broadline retailers to continue gaining share at SHLD’s expense.

    Sears’ pain could be particularly helpful for JC Penney (JCP), Chen says:

    In our view, weakness at Sears in the home appliances and tools categories providesJC Penney an opportunity to gain share as the retailer continues to refresh its home initiatives. Recall,JC Penney already delivered positive comps in the Home division in 4Q and management is very pleased with performance with ~500 appliance showrooms which have been driving sales and gross margin dollars. We believeJC Penney has ample runway to continue driving strong performance in this department with plans to open an additional ~100 new appliance showrooms in early 2017, while continuing to add new brand partners. Furthermore, with Sears donating share,JC Penney management plans to conduct several tests within their Home Store with a focus on its home installed services program. For example,JC Penney will test an HVAC install program through its partnership with Trane and other partners.

    Shares of Sears have gained 6.1% to $7.95 at 2:23 p.m. today, while JC Penney is unchanged at $6.24.

    It seems like Sears Holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD) has been on its death bed for some time now, and it tumbled another 20% this week setting new lows since Sears and Kmart merged roughly a decade ago. The issue facing investors this week appeared to be Sears’ liquidity. Credit-rating agency Fitch Ratings kept its speculative CC rating on the company, which suggests that a debt default is increasingly likely.

    Best Buy certainly has not seen the same destruction to its business like other retailers, mainly in the apparel space, have from Amazon, including Sears Holdings Corp. (SHLD) and J.C. Penney Co. Inc. (JCP) . While Best Buy’s revenue growth has been weak over the past several years, it has managed to consistently beat Wall Street profit forecasts via a combination of cost cuts and stock buybacks.
