Volume matter in tech analysis? Volume doesn't matter anymore in technical analysis. Nothing negative about WMT's chart which enjoys higher highs and higher lows. Moving averages point higher. Aug.24-Nov. 14 is seasonality, a defensive time. Maybe don't own it now. This will underperform the wider market.

Impressive chart. Performing decently. Outperforming Amazon. Worries about valuation, and growth rate is still in single digits. Prefers something like Dollar General.

Doing very, very well. Pushing into new highs this week. Consumer staples tend to do well in latter part of economic cycle. It's somewhat expensive, growth rate is low for him. Decent dividend. Low beta. Owns Dollar General instead. Prefers defensives with growth behind them. How well can it fight long-term against Amazon?

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.
