  • what is up with the funk in WMT's stock lately? If anything, people should be bullish on it after the hurricanes. Minimal store damage and they are ready to go, selling plenty of supplies!

  • I believe that people stocking up on supplies, especially staples, may only pull sales forward from November, so any bump we see pre-hurricane may be offset with a drop post-hurricane. We'll see.

  • I sure hope the self checkout machines work better than they do at other stores like Home Depot. There is always someone there to "help". Why not just open another lane??
