Walmart's boardroom shuffle
There's a change afoot in the chairman's office at Walmart (WMT). Greg Penner, the grandson-in-law of founder Sam Walton, is taking over. He succeeds Rob Walton, who's held the job for more than 20 years.  Penner is starting today following the retailer's annual shareholder meeting in Arkansas.

National Doughnut Day!
The holiday celebrating the much beloved sweet began in 1938 by the Salvation Army as a way to thank the women who served soldiers doughnuts during World War I. Now it's become a wonderful excuse to grab a free doughnut and for brands to remind Americans of their treats. We welcome Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) CEO Nigel Travis to talk all things doughnuts... and coffee.

What to watch next week
It's Friday which means we're looking ahead to next week. Everyone will have their eyes on Apple (AAPL) Monday as its World Wide Developers Conference kicks off with Tim Cook's keynote. Apple watchers expect some updates on software and the announcement of a new and improved streaming music service.

Also Monday, Sears (SHLD) reports quarterly earnings. The embattled retailer's stock is up more than 25% this year even while sales suffer. Michael Santoli knows why. Check out the video above for the answer!
