    ROFL $WMT gets a whopping $77 price target and its trading at $80... wonder what it will do in near term sell off??? $COST is probably a better buy as there isn't much up here this thing will trade sideways if your lucky.

    I think overall market is in trouble. This sell the news is clear indication that Big force now working otherway.

    I was expecting this in July and prepared my self. Glad I didn't give up on my preparation for worst. I am in 50% cash. I do got into couple of short put in money right now. If count them it's about 40% (Assuming SNAP not drop below $10.5 by tomorrow).

    My significant holding in $UAA, $TGT, $M, $COST (Retail mainly as Solar, Biotech & other, I exit significantly with rally.) which beaten up badly and when you long term ability, they are deeply under appreciated.

    $200-$220 by December - Smart money will be rotating to consumer defensive stocks till the end of the year like Costco to protect their gains without being completely on the sidelines.

    Saw in Forbes yesterday morning that Costco now offers a gift registry through MyRegistry.com, hopefully that will help boost the stock value a bit.

    Strong support at the $160 level. Base building there, then should move up solidly with positive earnings reports. No chance of disappointing earnings from Cost.

    analyst use PE ratio of 30 to make it sound very expensive. First next year they expect 6.42. They likely going to beat by 5% based on earning history = So actual PE is 23.
    Now analyst value $AMZN based on cash flow which contain various financial engineering to inflate it. Their property mainly include computer, robots and other thing that need to replace within 3 -10 year. So they are real cost.

    Now if you look into 10Q, Costco most of asset consist real estate property & so those depreciate at 25 year rate but really need to replace may be after 75 year. So their real depreciation is 1/3rd only. They have about $1.2B depreciation, So almost 0.8B you can add into profit = their EPS is $8.5 easily. Now that is just 18 PE. If you add real operating cash flow, this multiple go down to 15 or even lower.

    This is stock that has strong brand value, loyal customer base, Best experience in retail (Except parking issue because they are best and yet cheapest Quality provider), Pay dividend including frequent special dividend as big as $7.

    If you account for Market value for Costco real estate & current property - debt, My calculation put at $15B+ asset. If you discount that, PE would go even higher. ( You can count on this company on dividend pay & special dividend pay and so not wrong thing to count after discounting asset.)

    I don't think it will remain low for too long. I hold signficant number of share ( No. 4 position right now) just short $155 put as well.

    This is no brainer buy.
