The message should be to investors to think like investors - not like traders. - Buy the best of breed and hang on! You will be rewarded.
an up day. - The bottom has been established if no bankruptcy coming - Now priced like a good long term option. - Pick up 100,000 shares and look again in 5 years. - Might just make you a million.
going against the market big time today. - I added some thinking I was buying the dip - but the dip was me as it keep going down another nickel... :)
Recent poor sales and earning report without much solid encouragement going forward. They have a long ways to go to get margins where they need to be at a sales level that will profitably support the fixed cost/ overhead they have in place. - t
This a speculative investment. It could provide handsome returns if they can turn things in the next couple of quarter. - If not then there is still about $2.26 potential downside..... (A couple of good quarters adn and a steady upward trend and you could see $7 -$9 - but they have to EXECUTE
.05 per quarter plus buy backs works for me. - good dividend at this rate and better positioned in the future with fewer shares.
Sales at Walmart have actually gone down in many of its stores vs Y.AG. This has happened at a time when the economy has gotten better and gas prices are nearly a $10 less per fill up – putting more dollars in the hands of Walmart’s consumers. If it is not the economy, what is it that is hurting Walmart Sales?
Here in Wisconsin the dairy state I have seen Walmart’s prices on basics like milk and cheese priced $80 to $1.00 higher than Woodman’s and Aldi on 8oz chees chunks and gallons of milk. This price gap also appears in a number of other categories. It appears that Walmart’s everyday low pricing has consistently inched up to a point where they are no longer the price leader.
The selection at Walmart has also been reduced with a much more limited brand selection and multiple attempts to get their store brand programs correct has caused confusion with their customers.
While Walmart was the clear logistics leader in the 90’s –00’s they have been slipping considerably in the past couple of years. It is very common for them to have out of stocks on their shelf at any given point in time – but especially so for advertised items and on weekends. Could offshore sourcing be a contributing factor? Advertising an item only to have a customer show up and not be able to find it/ purchase it does not build store loyalty.
It is time for Walmart to go back to the basic merchandising and operational practices that made them successful. If not the law of large numbers will continue to haunt them and they will continue to be challenged on a number of fronts by competitors who are out pricing and out executing them.
Time for a Reverse Split?? Then a "Real" listing with a stock price above $5 - What do you think? 200 M plus is a lot of shares..... 2-20 M would make more sense for a company this size.
agree --- I doubled down this am - Look to be positive by this afternoon. (at least a couple of bucks above this am purchase price...)
You were looking good earlier in the week but running against the market today on significantly lower volume than earlier in the week. Just taking a "breather"?
Lets get to $2 first then we can all take a look. - Will probably still be a great value then.
On Yahoo alone they range from a $1 target up to $13. - does anyone really believe what they say? (I Have found however that they usually run in a tighter pack and often peg their targets to about 10% above the current trading level. (without giving any timing for their projection) )When the stock moves up they raise their target- when it goes down they lower it. - Anyone know of an analyst that actually does good work and has decent forecast ?
If dividend is held or increased by a penny. They should be in good shape with flat to growing earnings they can increase equity while paying us a nice return to wait for a higher share price. - I don't mind a lower stable price while I am accumulating.
