Wal-Mart's pricing hits pressured retailers where it hurts

Wal-Mart (WMT +0.1%) says it had its best five-day stretch ever for online sales as its website processed over a billion page views during the period.

The retailing giant will keep up an aggressive promotional stance this week following Cyber Monday with over 200 online specials every day for consumers.

It's a move that bites into the margins for pressured retailers such as Barnes & Noble (BKS -0.2%), Sears Holdings (SHLD -6.7%), and hhGregg (HGG +1.1%) which depend on key categories that Wal-Mart is increasingly disrupting.
