Announced a 3-for-1 stock split last January, then shares rose 18%. Two strong quarters helped.

Worrisome narrative that the lower-end demographic is having a lot of trouble and is pulling back. Usually think of it as doing well during poor economic times, but there's erosion from the bottom up. 55% of total revenue is from groceries, and that's a low margin business. In this nervous environment, rich at 25x PE.

Walmart Inc

Very large company with established business model. Good proxy on state of economy. Unsure on how company will grow - very large already. However, if interest rates fall - company will see increase in sales. Overall, is a defensive name. Not much growth, but not much downside either. Would prefer a name like Target.

DON'T BUY
Walmart Inc

Recent stock split irrelevant to investors. Underlying business performance most important factor in valuation. Comparing to options in tech sector, can be difficult to justify investment (valuation way too high). Would look elsewhere.

A juggernaut. Great CEO. Keeps selling at low prices. Always a good time to buy this.

Premier company, never trades cheaply. Executes well. Inflation on food has helped, and inflation has driven shoppers to seek cheaper items for discretionary purchases. Great online presence, continues to grow. Powerful.

BUY ON WEAKNESS
Walmart Inc

Recent stock split irrelevant to investors (same amount of earnings per share). Appearance of "cheaper" shares not true. Question is valuation of business to determine long term out. Believes future of business is strong, bit valuation is too high. Wait for price to fall.

Chart's distorted by the stock split, so don't be scared! Trendline is fine, on a gentle upslope. Stable. Founding family has been selling, hard to say if that's bad.

BUY ON WEAKNESS
Walmart Inc

Believes company is large enough to sustain growth. Question is whether stock is cheap enough. Very strong brand value with global reach. Excellent management team. Would wait for shares to fall before investing. Capital requirements also a concern with high inventory requirements.

COMMENT
Walmart Inc

The question was on his preference between Walmart or TJX. Walmart is at an attractive valuation and TJX has done well. However he prefers 5 Below (FIVE) and would wait for a pullback to buy the stock.

TOP PICK
Walmart Inc

Will benefit from stronger economy. Leader in revenue in discount chain store. Recently beat quarterly earnings estimates. Recent drop in price due to unrealistic guidance from CEO. Inflation sales to slow a little, but brand is very attractive to deal oriented consumers. Expecting 15% upside.

Their quarter disappointed last week, though they did nothing wrong. Problem is that market expectations got too high. Harsh.

BUY
Walmart Inc

It reports Thursday, which should be positive, because consumers are shifting spending to buy bargains which Walmart has.

TOP PICK
Walmart Inc

Fantastic superstore footprint, but also strong and growing online profile. Focus is on lower prices, which will be a magnet if consumer spending slows down. Stretched consumers will get biggest bang for buck. Yield is 1.38%.

(Analysts’ price target is $178.05)
