JCPenneystock (JCPenney nickname)

JCPenney, a department store, was founded by James Cash Penney in 1902 in Kemmerer, Wyoming. The company experienced financial difficulties in 2013 and was nicknamed “JCPenneystock” (penny stock) by the financial blog Zero Hedge in an April 8, 2013 tweet and in the May 1, 2013 story, “JCPenneystock: We Are Very, Very Sorry So Please Come Back And, Like, Buy Our Stuff.”

JCPenney has also been nicknamed “Jacques Penné.”

After watching the following sad, humiliating, grovelling “ad” by JCP whose sole premise is to apologize (for what: being the vehicle though which Bill Ackman got to channel his “I know all about retail” hubris and arrogance and in the process destroying the company? for Corzining half of your investment in the company stock? for getting more infomercial time on CNBC than even the Federal Reserve?) to that handful of people who even care to watch it…
