LOL! I wouldn't buy WMT either as I don't have the patience but I understand why DODGX did. WMT price is about half of what it was 7 years ago, yet earnings have grown every year since, the PE is only 15, the dividend is now 2%. This makes it a compelling value and consistant with DODGX strategy. If WMT doubles in 6 years it will match DODGX LT growth rate of 14%.
DODGX is a buy and hold through good times and bad, not to be scrutinized quarter to quarter.
I got it in my 401 and I aint going nowhere. I just feel cursed by WMT, like its following me around. Maybe someday it will blossom again as a winning stock.... I think Scott has run his course there tho.
