David's Bridal Misses Debt Payment, Prepares To File Bankruptcy
Craig Newman 10/17/2018 9:01:55 PM

From a nostalgic aspect, I couldn't care less. But I do see tremendous danger in the elimination of competition. Before you know it, there will only be #Walmart and #Amazon left. Anyone who wants to buy or sell a product will need to do so through them.

Don’t Buy Walmart

#Walmart is, and always has been, a mess.

Walmart is Not the Perfect Stock. So What?

#Walmart's acquisition of #Jet was supposed to position the company as a viable competitor to #Amazon. But I've yet to see any technical innovation as a result. Can we still expect to see any benefits? Or was it just a waste of money? $WMT $AMZN

Retail Apocalypse Accelerates: 200 Winn-Dixie Stores To Close As Parent Goes Bankrupt

I think it depends on whether you are talking about physical stores or online. Sure #Walmart has been taking an increasingly larger bite from grocery sales while it is still too early to tell if the #Amazon acquisition of Whole Foods will have a meaningful impact on it's marketshare.

But when it comes to online shopping, Amazon is becoming increasingly distruptive. It wasn't long ago that I started doing about 25% of my shopping online direct from the supermarkets' websites (usually as a result of a coupon being sent my way). But lately, I'd say about 75% of my grocery shopping comes straight from Amazon. Either direct or through Amazon Fresh. Prices are pretty good (especially when paired with their frequent coupons, shipping times are super fast, quality is excellent, and the customer service can't be beat.

What do you mean? #Walmart is still around. $WMT

Netflix’s Price Increase Signals Original Content Isn’t Enough
Bruce Powers 10/9/2017 7:41:58 PM

Not just persevere, but excel and obliterate the competition. Don't forget that many said #Netflix's days were finished when #Walmart, #Blockbuster and others tried to compete with them. Which of those other companies are still standing? Only one! $NFLX

Wal-Mart Just Isn't A Growth Company Any More
Angry Old Lady 7/17/2017 7:56:48 PM

While I know #Walmart ($WMT) and #Amazon ($AMZN) treat its suppliers and employees poorly, I also know that means greater savings for me, so I'm okay with it. No one is forced to sell to, or work for, these companies. And no one is forced to shop there. I see no issues all around.

#Walmart is horrible to both its suppliers and its employees. But are #Amazon and other companies really that much better? With the exception of a standout like Wegmans, any company that wields that much clout is going to use it. $WMT $AMZN

Winner & Losers from Amazon’s Proposed Purchase of Whole Foods
Craig Newman 6/23/2017 8:49:59 PM

Shopping at #Walmart is a miserable experience. #Amazon excels at customer service. If they increase efficency at #WholeFoods, they can likely do less with more, while still keeping customer service a priority. $WMT, $AMZN $WFM

Amazon's Acquisitions Create Adverse Reactions
Carol Klein 6/23/2017 2:03:58 PM

#Walmart acquired #Jet to compete with #Amazon. Now Amazon wants to acquire #WholeFoods to compete with Walmart. I don't think Walmart's acquisition did a think for them. Hopefully Amazon's will work out better for them $WMT $AMZN $WFM

Winner & Losers from Amazon’s Proposed Purchase of Whole Foods
Danny Straus 6/20/2017 6:44:19 PM

Personally, I hope this acquisition is the end of #Walmart. Shopping there is a dreadful experience and they don't deserve to stay in business. Yes, prices are cheap but there is zero customer service, horrible wait times, etc. #Amazon could radically change all that doing what they do best. $WMT $AMZN

Winner & Losers from Amazon’s Proposed Purchase of Whole Foods
Barry Hochhauser 6/20/2017 6:41:43 PM

#Amazon's acquisition of #WholeFoods could revolutionize the industry. I don't think it will be the end of #Walmart though unless Amazon starts selling actual products in the the physical stores like Walmart does. And I don't think the Whole Foods locations are physically large enough. $AMZN $WMT $WFM

Athleisure Remains The Best “Fit” In Fashion Stocks
Kurt Benson 4/7/2017 7:56:20 PM

The downside is that these big stores like $WMT will go out of business unless they raise prices which help the consumer. It should help the dollar, but it will take time. When that does happen though, #Walmart will get more bang for their buck so it could even out. But it's a big change and there are likely a lot of unforeseen issues which could arise.

It is a tough time for department stores. I just don't see how they can compete with #Amazon and others like it. Not to mention, if #Trump can push through his new tax plan, it will kill stores especially, #Walmart and #Target. $AMZN $WMT $TGT

Wal-Mart And Jet.com: How Does The Combination Compare With Amazon?
Alpha Stockman 8/17/2016 10:07:29 PM

Don Dion, you are wise to be cautious. You right that it will take time for #Walmart to see any benefit. Plus, as I just said on Leigh Drogen 's similar article here: www.talkmarkets.com/.../will-jetcom-save-walmart-from-amazons-fury, Jet is no Amazon!

Will Jet.com Save Walmart from Amazon’s Fury?
Terrence Howard 8/17/2016 9:58:08 PM

I agree. #Amazon ($AMZN) is exceptionally innovative. #Walmart ($WMT) is exceptionally behind the times (any one who has ever used instore pickup knows what I mean - waiting an hour for someone to visually check each box for your name since they have no tracking technology). But #Jet is decidedly average. The pairing won't help Walmart much.
