Can Walmart Shares Deliver Next Day After Earnings?

Timothy Collins

The company's plan is to offer free NextDay delivery on a wide range of general merchandise without a membership fee -- a direct challenge to Amazon. Eventually, Walmart will reach 75% of the U.S. population with its NextDay free shipping, which sounds like a lot, but when you look closer you'll find that it only encompasses 40 of the top 50 major U.S metro areas. In short, Walmart has designed this to minimize costs.
