According to Securities & Exchange Commission filings, Lampert spent more than $13 million of his own money to buy 332,048 shares on Jan. 9 and Jan. 10.

Last week, Lampert announced that he would be assuming the CEO role at the company after Louis D’Ambrosio leaves the job for family health matters in February.

Lampert and his hedge fund ESL Investments already owned about 62% of Sears stock before the latest purchase, retail analysts said.

News of his purchase send Sears Holdings stock up more than 7% on Monday.

During its third quarter report released in November, Sears Holdings posted a widened loss as comparable store sales continued to weaken.
