This has a very important period of seasonal strength, usually from the middle of January through until at least May, and sometimes into July. After that, the stock tends to go down. Currently, it is testing its previous level and is having difficulty getting above the previous high. If you are a trader, you should take some money off the table.

Widely viewed as an old time conventional huge retailer. He is positively predisposed towards it. They are one of the biggest Internet retailers. Feels this is going to be right up there as being one of the successful long-term e-retailers.

*Covered Call*. The company suffered and took a hit after Amazon (AMZN-Q) announced their purchase of Whole Foods. He thinks it got hit too hard. When you have a stock that drops like that, you tend to get the option premiums bumped up a little because there is a perception of greater risk. You have to like Walmart if you are going to do this, and you have to believe that they can compete very effectively against Amazon. He thinks Amazon is challenged with the “last mile” of delivery, which is the most expensive mile.

(A Top Pick June 3/16. Up 11%.) His view was that despite Amazon’s (AMZN-Q) dominance, this would be one of the survivors. They had a great balance sheet. High ROE at 18%, PE at around 17X and it generates a good amount of cash.

With Amazon’s (AMZN-Q) takeover of Whole Foods, what a lot of people didn’t know but are finding out now, is that Walmart is a huge grocer. Over 55% of revenues are in the grocery business. The Amazon news was a throwing down of the gauntlet. That is trouble for Walmart. Walmart also has the problem of taking on costs. They have a very large labour force, which is not particularly highly paid. He would stay away from this and let things settle out a little.

Has owned this for a long, long time. It is basically in the crosshairs of Amazon (AMZN-Q), but it is a retailer he would prefer over all others. They focus on the lower end of the market, which he feels still has decent growth ahead of it. The company is putting in the effort to fight back on the online side. Their e-commerce sales are doing very, very well. Not a super cheap company. They buy back oodles of stock every year.

You could buy Amazon (AMZN-Q) at 142X earnings, and a lot of risk goes with buying stocks with such a high P/E ratio. Walmart is trading at 17X earnings and gives a dividend of just under 3%. (Analysts’ price target is $74.)

Since the beginning of February, a lot of the most under performing stocks in the market have bounced, and a lot of the strongest stocks have had a little pullback. There are a lot of people who feel the PE multiple of the market is expensive, so a lot of investors have tried to take down the number of expensive companies in their portfolios. This is a good company, but it’s in the wrong place in the industry long-term. They will continue to be under assault from companies like Amazon (AMZN-Q). He would rather be a shareholder in Amazon.

There was a weakness in all the defensive names in 2016, but not pronounced as much in this company. The worst is now over and he can see some limited upside, probably running into some resistance at around $83. He has a technical target of around $85. They’ve made some good progress over the last year in changing some of their business lines. A good holding. Dividend yield of 2.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $73.)

He tries to assess how visible a company’s long term cash flow growth is going to be and this is hard with Wal-Mart. 70% of revenue comes from the US. 55% of revenues are from groceries. He is concerned that longer term it will be very difficult to forecast free cash flow for them. This is why he does not own it. E-commerce is 5% of WMT-N sales.

*Short*. A good company, the largest retailer in the world, but that is one of the problems. How do you grow, especially when growth is 56% of your business. You have everything from organic producers to super discounters fighting you. It is hard for them to move the needle and increase their margins. They’ve been trying to ratchet down street expectations by 15%-20% over a multiyear period. Their consumer is predominantly lower and middle class consumers, who are more impacted by gas prices and probably not going to benefit from Trump’s rhetoric of “America First”. Dividend yield of 2.92%. (Analysts’ price target is $73.00.)

(Top Pick Feb 5/16, Up 5.84%) They were higher, but fell a little bit. This one got hit a little bit more than the sector. It is going to focus on its comps and its digital business. It is doing a bit of base building. You get paid nicely to hold it now. If it does not hold $65.80 then he would be concerned. It looks good here at this level.
