  • Is Costco The Strongest Large U.S. Retailer? [View article]
    in my previous article I dealt with negative same-store sales of WMT http://bit.ly/RmWIXZ. This is worrying. I think people will increasingly turn to the internet for shopping, but for groceries, they still MUST go to physical stores. This is where the strength of WMT, COST, TSCO and the likes is. If the grocery business goes online, they're dead!

    this puzzled me also, but then i found out that Costco's earnings consist ENTIRELY of membership fees, in other words, it functions as a giant cooperative channel to get goods from producers to consumers.

    I AM GLAD to hear that Buffett regrets selling MCD, considering the explosion in price since 1998, it must have lost him billions and it's the best stock you can buy right now

    i think MCD has such high yield because investors find fast food distasteful, but people seem to love it..

    i don't like smaller retailers because so many things can go wrong...
    wish i listened to munger droning on about costco in the nineties and bought it then...
    with wmt you know you are in with the waltons, who knows who controls these small companies and a bad ceo can wreak havoc...

    FDO is a good pick! i don't think 15 p/e is overvaluation, it is the fair price, of course it would be better for us investors always to pay less.

    FDO had a pretty sharp drop in cash from operations in 2012 and net income is stagnant for the last quarter..

    yes, but i buy and hold forever, and i believe this stock can be held forever. usa is becoming a socialist country and that implies industrial monopolies. tell me another retail stock to buy (just don't say costco as its valuation is through the roof http://seekingalpha.co...)
    you have to have retail exposure in your portfolio and this company has 10 bill in free cash, are there threats to the cash flow, i think it will continue to grow..

  • Wal-Mart And Costco Compared [View article]
    Costco to me looks like co-op. Almost only cash flow comes from membership..

  • Wal-Mart (WMT) will adopt a "zero tolerance policy" from March for breaches of it sourcing regulations, saying it will end agreements with suppliers that subcontract work to factories without telling the U.S. retailer first. Wal-Mart will also require additional safety measures at plants in Bangladesh, where a fire killed 112 people in November at a factory that produced clothes for Wal-Mart. [View news story]
