    All 3 dollar stores - $34B in market cap. Walmart - $256 billion in market cap. Please stop presenting dollar stores as this hugely credible threat to Walmart.

     

    Target, as a single company, has a market cap of 44B. I dont worry about Target as a Walmart investor, and I am not going to worry about dollar stores that are as small in relation to Walmart as some regional hardware retailers are to Home Depot.
