Income Statement

Mr. Lobo

All Departments
Walmart has a total of 13 departments catering to a limitless demographic
Products range from electronics to clothing to pharmaceuticals
From several brands like Samsung, Gerber, Kellogg's, Dove, Disney, KitchenAid, etc.
S.W.O.T Analysis
Powerful in being the largest retailer
Huge quantity of operations and efficiency of supply chain with technology
Strong market power (value for less and convenience in having multitude of products in one store)
International presence with stores in 28 countries, expanding income sources and experience (i.e. purchasing of ASDA in the United Kingdom or having Walmex in Mexico)
Since the Walmart business is so large, the company is left with spots of weak areas considering the expansive span of control (lack of detail)
Due to the selling of a wide range of products, the products may not be as accommodating as more focused competitors
Walmart is global, but has not extended to all that many countries (Is 28 countries enough?)
According to the everyday low prices mentality, there are slim profit margins, making them focus on selling volumes of products
Idea can easily be replicated
Work with, take over or adopt relationships with other retailers around the world, preferably in European countries
Expanding into more developing countries in order to improve their economy
Making more locations in a variety of sites to be more accessible (i.e. large supercentres and malls)
Improvement in quality as the large amount of products sold at a low price raises concerns
Being such a large company comes with competition locally and globally
With similar companies like Costco Wholesale Corporation, Dollar Tree Inc., Sears Holdings Corporation, and Target Corporation
Due to Walmart being international, the corporation is subject to global political problems
Since the cost of manufacturing products have decreased in recent years because of technology and/or the use lower paid workers around the world, competition arises in regards to prices

Significant News Moments
Walmart became a publicly traded company. The first stock was sold at $16.50 per share.
Walmart was listed on the New York Stock Exchange (WMT) with 51 stores and sales of $78 million.
The first Sam's Club opened, serving small businesses and individuals, and the first Walmart Supercenter opened. Walmart reached $1 billion in annual sales, faster than any other company at that time.
Walmart became the U.S's #1 retailer. Walmart Supercenter redefined one-stop shopping, while going international.
Sam Walton received the Medal of Freedom stating the company’s mission of saving people money so they can live better. He passes away at 74.
Contributed $18 million and sent 2,450 truckloads of supplies to victims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Therefore, I recommend that one would hold stocks in Walmart
Walmart is the biggest retailer in the world, and its competition is far behind, so there is not much concern of another competitor taking its place. Walmart is a household name and people aren't going to stop going there anytime soon
The stock price has been on a growing trend since Walmart's entry into the market, with the only notable drop being on November 13, 2015. However, that is due to Walmart increasing employee wage and training, so that the customer service will improve in the future
Despite the drop in stock price in November 2015, Walmart has currently bounced back and has increased the price back up to about $69
Walmart had also announced their drop in prices for their goods and services in order to accommodate for the drop in stock price. This has led to their stocks of competitors like Target and Amazon to decrease, showing that Walmart wasn't the only retailer to drop
Walmart's expansion into other countries, along with possibly looking into acquiring other types of businesses and services, could potentially indicate a boom in stock price in the near future
