Sears Holdings Corp. fell a day after the retailer said chairman and hedge fund billionaire Edward Lampert will be CEO — even as the company offered an update on holiday sales that showed some improvement at Sears stores.

Lampert has been known as a hands-on chairman at the chain, which has posted six straight years of sales declines.
