Walmart is Not the Perfect Stock. So What?
Alpha Stockman 2/26/2018 4:40:00 PM

#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

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

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.

Wal-Mart Just Isn't A Growth Company Any More
Bill Johnson 7/17/2017 7:36:04 PM

#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.

Athleisure Remains The Best “Fit” In Fashion Stocks
Kurt Benson 4/7/2017 7:46:10 PM

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
