"This year's Q1 revenues fall just shy of 2015's Q1 revenues, but that is reasonable with the new additional spending on employees."

I do not see how spending more on employees will negatively impact revenues.

Thanks I was about to post the same .. Falling revenues are a result of purchase options for the same price with more favorable conditions for the buyer. Walmart is experiencing the next level of company growth. Very few companies learn how to expand their products and services to additional consumers when they have saturated the markets they serve.
Nice article, interesting forecast--thank you.

My local Wal-Mart has a big blow-up photo of a smiling Chinese guy over the front doors on the interior side.

The issue to me is that the products are mostly crap. You get what you pay for but to woo back shoppers I think the crap quality will hurt WM in the long run. I am not saying to raise the prices but I am saying give me more quality for the money.

What direction would Sam have taken? I think the "good ole" days are gone.
The bigger they are the harder they fall.

It is suppliers own fault.

I have seen it in Canada with Dollarama and Dollar Giant (the latter of these two dollar store chaines now owned by Dollar Tree).

Suppliers give best prices and terms to bigger customers. Those customers have an easier time growing and then those customers get too big. The supplier finds themselves in their own bind. One they created themselves.

A supplier should work to build all customer relationships, for the long run. Then, if Walmart is giving a supplier a hard time, the business isnt destroyed by the relationship.

In short, suppliers put MOST of their eggs in one basket with Walmart. Then, Walmart controls them and actually ends up owing their business in reality.

Looks good on suppliers. I am happy they are getting what they deserve.

Walmart is doing some things right, especially in trying to retain their employees although they will always be a target for criticism because of them being the largest employer.
Tired of hearing how they're pushing into the online shopping. Imagine how well they would do if they actually had a good search engine on their app.
Really think they need to spin off its SAMs club into a separate entity. Currently, it's just a Walmart that sells in bulk.
