(NASDAQ:AMZN) and Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) was finally creating a tangible headwind for COST stock, as the Costco stock price fell 6% in the wake of what was superficially a decent fourth quarter report. The profit of $2.08 per share of Costco stock was remarkably better than the year-ago figure of $1.77, and also better than analyst expectations. Whatever the case, with the dust now settling on the company’s fourth quarter report and with analysts making adjustments to their forecasts, it’s time to start asking the next inevitable question.

Investors never like it when a company they own dilutes the value of its outstanding shares, but everyone likes the reverse.
In early September, we recommended positioning for Wal-Mart’s stock to rally higher in anticipation that the market would bullishly rerate the stock. Now, after revealing last week that online sales should rise 40% in fiscal 2019 and announcing a $20 billion stock buyback, Wal-Mart shares (WMT) are trading around a new 52-week high, and it’s time to reset our recommended trades. The trade positions investors to buy stock at $85 or lower, and to profit if the stock breaks out to a new high and trades above $87.50.
