He holds Costco instead, as it brings in 3x as much in sales. WMT is a good name, but has lower growth prospects. Trying to enhance their digital experience, and he can't predict results just yet. 26x earnings, 6% earnings growth. Not cheap, but not expensive.

He owns little retail now. It's done well in 2020, but is a little pricey given their PE, but he's stick with it. They're online presence suggests they could go head-to-head with Amazon. They continue to grow and reinvent themselves for the changing consumer, when old models don't work. A great stock.

WMT-N vs. COST-Q. Both names are core consumer staples companies. WMT-N has done a good job of transitioning to e-commence. COST-Q have this membership fee and every time they raise it, it all falls to the bottom line. She would prefer WMT-N because the multiple is lower, but would buy either one of them.

(A Top Pick Oct 17/19, Up 21%) He has sold it on a valuation basis. 56% of their revenues comes from groceries, which is a low margin business, which does not justify trading at high 20 multiples. It is a stretch. The company has done everything you expect, but the valuation did not make sense so they took their profit.

Controversial. Historically, not known for good execution. Changes in consumer patterns necessitated digital capability. Good job in that respect. Lately, not expensive. As more of a defensive name in your portfolio, you'll do fine with it.

WMT vs. COST vs. AMZN Costco has a good management team, good long-term grower, make strategic, smart decisions. Walmart just jumps around too much. They should stick to their knitting, but instead management is always trying to play catch up in different arenas. But, quite frankly, the one to own in this space is Amazon.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly With the recent pullback from $150 highs, this is a good opportunity to enter. Rising revenues, profit margins and EPS are propelling this company, which has been an essential service provider during the pandemic. As retail bankruptcies rise in the US, there is a growing gap for WMT to fill. Dividends have grown for 47 consecutive years and are backed by a 34% payout ratio. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $120. Yield 1.58% (Analysts’ price target is $145.88)

Recent retail sales data in the US shows that about 40% is concentrated in the 4 names of Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe's, and Target. Going forward, this is a play on the US GDP. If you believe the economy will chug along at a decent rate, this is the one to buy. If not, then look at one of the niche e-retailers.

They are one of the few that are going to survive on the retail side. The problem is that they constantly bought assets and then squashed those businesses. It doesn't help them against AMZN-Q. They are having trouble competing with Amazon Prime. They are not having trouble moving into the digital world. They have used their balance sheet to constantly buy assets. They have a good existing business but they don’t understand what they want to use their digital presence for. AMZN-Q will be higher in five years.

Best retailer to invest in. He would hold off in investing in any of them right now. Large cap retailers are capturing market share and growing revenues. However, it's not going to last forever and the valuation has climbed up very quickly. Longer-term they are great retail franchises but expensive right now.

Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Historically, Walmart has been the anti–bellwether stock. During the 2008-9 recession, Walmart rallied as the U.S. GDP plunged, then Walmart’s sales fell as the American economy recovered from mid-2009 through 2011. Walmart and the GDP actually moved in synch from mid-2012 through mid-2013, but de-coupled by late-2013.

$3.5 billion investment in warehouses and Shopify deal They're one of the few companies that can compete with Amazon, given how they're pushing their online business aggressively through the Shopify deal. (Target can also compete.) Walmart has done all the right things. They've executed well online and have performed well during this pandemic. Walmart will continue to invest in e-commerce with strong supply chain management. It's a great story.

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.
