Alternative investment opportunities provide hope to Sears shareholders

Growing numbers of stock market investors are turning to alternative investment opportunities

On what was a holiday for many around the world, the markets were open in the US on Tuesday (December 27) to devastating effect.

Investors in Sears, the US owner of the Sears and Kmart department stores, saw their shares fall by 27% following the announcement of plans to close 120 outlets.

The news follows eight weeks of poor figures, which saw sales drop by 6% at Sears and 4.4% at Kmart.

"It's on a slow death watch," retail analyst Brian Sozzi told the Los Angeles Times.

"It gives investors a flashback to Circuit City and Borders, which tried to stave off financial troubles by closing stores, but then went out of business completely."

The figures are a reminder to stock market investors of the importance of hedging their investments, and many are already doing so through diversification into the exciting collectibles sector.

There are currently superb alternative investment opportunities available to collectors of space memorabilia.

The space-worn suits from the famed 1969 Apollo XI mission are housed at the Smithsonian museum in Washington, DC.

But otherimportant Apollo XI suits are sometimes available to collectors on the private market, although their strictly limited numbers meanopportunities topurchase do not appear often.

In 2010 Paul Fraser Collectibles sold an unsigned NASA boiler suit, worn by Apollo XI's oft-forgotten third member Michael Collins following the crew's recovery from the Pacific Ocean, for 75,000 ($117,500).

We have a superb training suit, signed by Buzz Aldrin, available to you today for the same 75,000 figure(approx. $117,500).

The bright orange flight coverall was worn by Buzz Aldrin during training for both of his spaceflights: Gemini 12 in 1966, where he conducted three successful space walks, and Apollo XI.

It has been signed by Aldrin above the left chest pocket: "Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11, July 20th 1969".

It offers superb value: in May, the spacesuit Alexei Leonov was wearing when he shook hands with Tom Stafford during the historic docking of the Soviet and US crews in 1975, sold for $242,000.
