WMT is going to clean house with all of this free money being helicoptered out.
@Billybobp , That's not fair!
FlipKart will do good in India because there is trimendous growth potential for e-commerce in India with it's huge population.
@Billybobp , Numbers have financial meaning.
I failed to mention Healthcare and future dentist offices. These help drive floor traffic.

COST comping the comp in March... bodes well for WMT, TGT, DG, DLTR, OLLI and others facing "tough" comparisons.

Many small businesses closed down during 2020.
WMT, COST, TGT & AMZN will have very strong retail performance for years to come
@Sleepless@FED , They have been performing very well.
WMTis also aiming to get in the top 10 with advertising.
WMT should do good with it's new partnership in fintech because of it's huge customer base. Flipkart should expand and grow in India. Wmt is also going to get big in insurance; it's huge number of stores will help with this endeavor WMT is also investing big bucks in self driving 18 wheelers and automated warehouses. WMT online business jumped 69 per cent year over year.
@Billybobp Good info, I'm glad there are a few optimistic people out there for WMT... I'm really wondering how this Flipkart deal will play out?
@Billybobp You forgot to include WMT Health. Once you go to one of their clean, efficient clinics, you wonder why you would go to your regular doctor!
@RBinMarietta , I didn't know about them.
TGT has been the value play for a long while. Now more of a race as all are bid up.
@MoGARP , That removes them as a value play if their price rises too high.
Call me skeptical. Sans COVID, WMT earnings are not likely to have exceeded those reported in 2014 - SEVEN YEARS AGO. Margins have declined significantly and increasing e-commerce has not help them. COVID resolution restores alternative shopping destinations to viable competition, making comparables the more difficult. The only things keeping EPS even near 2014 levels are COVID and share buy-backs.
Show me the pudding.
I like Walmart because if you are traveling with a motorhome, camper, or trailer, you are welcome to park it on the Walmart parking lot off near the perimeter over night for free. Sears and Kmart didn't offer that and they went down.
