NEW YORK -- Moody's Investor Service upgraded Caldor's senior subordinated debentures to single-B1 from single B2 affecting $59.5 million in debt.
The rating firm said the action is based on consistent operating earnings, improved equity base and reduced leverage from two successful offerings since it went public again in 1991. However, Moody's added that the new rating continues to reflect the ongoing pressure on Caldor's margins that is as a result of increased competition and the limited opportunities for lowering operating expenses. Moody's also said Caldor will have to fund store remodeling and expansion.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
