Dividend safe? The shares are trading at an all time high, so he sees no risk to the dividend being cut. They are also seeing growth in e-commerce as well. They are the low cost provider for many goods, it should be fine. He might not invest in it here, but would continue to hold it.

Remember that valuation is relative. Some years have higher valuations, some lower. Make sure you own shares that companies make things that people want and the company leads in its sector. WMT is a powerhouse, but its price performance vs. the market has been falling since September. WMT is really improving its e-commerce, but it will cost them. It's a great company...but there's Amazon. WMT is too defensive for this current market.

He sold it recently because of its valuation of mid/low-20s multiple. It's really a grocer, the largest in the world, which offers a razor-thin margin. He foresaw more downside than upside. Where was the catalyst to grow?

Making inroads against Amazon. Good earnings, recent acquisition is working. Current pullback is indicative of the market overall. Positive time of year for them. As online becomes a bigger component of sales, that will be reflected in the valuation. A defensive name, a stable investment, so it would go down less in a down market.

Their acquisition has done very well. Same store sales are up. They have strong numbers overall. They are going to remodel their stores and this CAP-X could impair their ability to raise dividends. The tariffs have impeded their sales. Their margins may be squeezed by tariffs. He is not there because of the CAP-X spending planned. The valuation is attractive and there is support at the current price.
