Barron's Picks: Sure, Wal-Mart (WMT) is "an obvious choice in an uncertain economy rife with price-sensitive consumers," but its stock could stagnate or drift lower as the retailer faces competition from the likes of TGT, AMZN, grocers, dollar-stores, etc. with little room left to keep cutting prices.

    WMT has already said it will be raising prices with the discontinuance of the "Rollback". Some items I buy at WMT will undoubtedly be bought somewhere else. One of my concerns is that our local Walmart frequently has empty spaces on it's shelves. Is this bad local planning or something else?
