What are Wall Street analysts saying about Walmart stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Walmart stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Walmart’s shares have underperformed the industry in the past three months. The company has been witnessing strained margins for a while now, due to costs associated with e-commerce and technological investments; along with a compelling pricing strategy. In fact, investment in Flipkart is expected to continue weighing on Walmart’s bottom line in fiscal 2020. Nonetheless, the deal is likely to augment top line and be beneficial in the long run. Notably, Walmart’s top line has been gaining from its focus on enhancing e-commerce and store operations. Further, the company is making efforts to improve its International unit by shifting focus to profitable countries. These factors helped Walmart retain its sturdy earnings surprise record in third-quarter fiscal 2019, wherein U.S. comps rose for the 21st straight time." (12/2/2019)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We remain BUY-rated and raise our PT to $125 (from $115). We were encouraged by the 1H momentum and believe today’s result demonstrates WMT’s unique positioning. WMT believes the U.S. consumer remains in relatively good shape and after a softer start to the quarter (May was the weakest month, but still positive), business improved sequentially (June/July both were stronger). U.S. comps were +2.8% (vs. our +2.5% est.) with broad-based strength. The comp included gains in both traffic (+0.6%) and ticket (+2.2%). Traffic accelerated on a two-year basis and the primary reason behind the QoQ deceleration was tough compares." (8/15/2019)
