More on Wal-Mart's (WMT) Q1: Comparable-store sales dipped 1.4% during Q1 as the company says delayed income tax refunds and lousy weather cut into traffic. Revenue at Wal-Mart International grew 2.9% to $33B while Sam's Club sales were up just 0.1% to $13.87B. Traffic was down 1.8% across the company, a bigger drop than analysts forecast. A couple of bright spots during the quarter were booming e-commerce sales (+30%) and a gain in market share in the food, consumables and health & wellness/OTC category. The retailer sees Q2 EPS of $1.22-$1.27 vs. $1.29 consensus. WMT -1.8% premarket to $78.40. (PR)
