>I think that the Sears stores are in a death spiral.

It would certainly seem that way. IMO Ironically Sears is referenced historically for it Catalog business. However it looks like Amazon has become the new Sears of today with the online catalog. RSH shutting down stores along with Staples.

RE: appraisal rights

I'm more familiar with the term, Dissenters Rights. For a small guy like my self. For myself personally. The only time I've ever get involved in a Unfair bids, is when I'm personally called to have my proxy solicited against a merger. FWIW- IMO one good strategy is for minority shareholder to pool together with major holders and not tender their shares. This to keep the acquiring company from getting enough shares to complete a merger. Of coarse, this could backfire, but if the company really wants to complete the merger. There's a good chance for a sweeten bid.

Definition of 'Dissenters' Rights'

State legislation that allows shareholders of a corporation the right to receive a cash payment for the fair value of their share, in the event of a share-for-share merger or acquisition to which the shareholders do not consent. Dissenters' rights allow dissenting shareholders an easy way out of the company if they do not want to be a part of the merger.

P.S. The last time I received a call from a proxy solicitor was for PRPX. I thought the board sold out the company at an unfairly low price.
