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 outpaced the industry year to date. The stock has been especially benefitting from increased traffic stemming from rising demand for essential items amid coronavirus. COVID-19 and the resultant social distancing has spiked up the demand for toilet paper, masks, gloves, groceries and related staples. This has led to increased store traffic, to handle which the company also announced additional hiring. Walmart is also taking actions to support employees’ well-being and safety. To this end, it announced special cash bonuses, and has altered shopping methods to aid social distancing. The company has also been gaining from its e-commerce business, especially grocery delivery. However, the company’s gross margin has been strained for a while due to compelling pricing and growing e-commerce mix." (5/4/2020)
  • 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)
