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 in the past year, backed by focus on strengthening e-commerce and store operations. These factors helped the company retain its sturdy comps trend in third-quarter fiscal 2019, wherein earnings marked its seventh straight beat and U.S. comps rose for the 21st straight time. Further, e-commerce sales surged on robust online grocery performance. Further, e-commerce sales are expected to rise nearly 35% in fiscal 2020. The company is also making efforts to improve its International unit by shifting focus to profitable countries. However, Flipkart’s addition was a drag on Walmart’s bottom line, which is expected to continue in fiscal 2020. This along with a compelling pricing strategy and tariff-related worries is a threat to margins. Nonetheless, the Flipkart deal bodes well for the long term." (1/3/2020)
  • 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)
