- Freshly-appointed Wal-Mart (WMT) CEO Doug McMillon has at least a few fires to put out as he tries to bring the same moxy he used at Sam's Club and the international business to the top job at the retailer.
- This week, wage protests are expected at some Wal-Mart outlets while the compliance issues in Mexico and Bangladesh aren't fully in the rear-view mirror just yet.
- The swipes at McMillon from outside Arkansas focus on that the degrees of separation between the exec and the Walton family aren't quite enough.
- If the inside hire by Wal-Mart tips off one thing, retail analysts say, it's that the integrated e-commerce strategy that McMillon backed will stay on its current track. The goal is still simple: Cut into Amazon's lead.
