The parent company of Sears and Kmart, which has been paring costs and hoarding cash in a bid to survive, said Tuesday that it will put off repaying much of a $500 million loanto help shrink its debt.
Subsidiaries of Sears Holdingnow have a deal that will allow them to pay back $100 million of a $500 million loan in July, the initial date of maturity. But the remaining $400 million will not come due until January, 2018, with Sears having the option to push the maturity date out even further to July of next year.
The iconic retailerhas been taking numerous steps to restore its bottom line, which has suffered amid management stumbles, and a retail landscape full of more nimble retailers and shoppers increasingly more interested in shopping online.
After announcing at the start of the year that it would shutter 150 under performing stores, it has recently added at least 30 more locations to the list. The retailer has also been selling off chunks of its extensive real estate holdings, borrowing money, and even putting some of its cherished brands up for sale.

If you’re shopping for great buys in the oil patch right now, three Motley Fool contributors think you should take a close look at tech-heavy but asset-light oilfield services providerCore Laboratories N.V.(NYSE:CLB), value-priced independent oil producerApache Corporation(NYSE:APA), and refining giantMarathon Petroleum Corp(NYSE:MPC).
- [By Todd Campbell]
In the years since oil prices plunged from their $100-plus per barrel levels of 2014, many energy industry stocks have struggled — but now, they may be set to rebound. Economic growth worldwide and Middle Eastern production cuts have resulted in a more than doubling of crude oil prices since early 2016; if they remain near current levels or head higher, now could be the perfect time to add Hess Corp. (NYSE:HES), Diamond Offshore (NYSE:DO), and Core Labs (NYSE:CLB) to your portfolio.

Muckerman: I can go. That’ll work. One company I’m paying close attention to is Core Labs (NYSE:CLB). They’re based out of the Netherlands, but they have their U.S., maybe global, headquarters in Houston. This is a premier company that’s involved in reservoir description and enhancement services. So, when you’re looking at a well, they can basically recreate the well in their lab and tell you exactly what kind of fluid, what kind of proppants, what kind of chemicals, what kind of pressure. They can tell you exactly how to get the most bang for your buck. It’s not cheap, but it’s worth it in the long run. And this company is just continually buying back shares with their money. They generate tons of free cash flow.

Core Laboratories (NYSE: CLB) and North American Construction Group (NYSE:NOA) are both oils/energy companies, but which is the superior investment? We will contrast the two businesses based on the strength of their risk, institutional ownership, profitability, dividends, valuation, analyst recommendations and earnings.

America’s oil renaissance is powered almost exclusively by technology, as companies like Schlumberger (SLB) and Core Labs (CLB) are breathing new life into once forgotten wells. Nucor (NUE) has a similar leadership position in the steel industry thanks to technology, and that company will only benefit more that President Trump’s tariffs put the market on a more level playing field.
