buy walmart
« on: July 19, 2011, 08:48:34 am »

since the fed's passed the interchange rule where Walmart won't have to pay as much for each debit/credit transaction, they are going to have a huge upswing in profit next quarter. Buy Buy Buy. Not to mention the recession isn't going anywhere and since walmart is a cost differentiator they thrive and will continue to do so.

If it wasn't for Wal-Mart we would have far more people living in actual poverty.  They increase the buying power of a family of four's income by several thousand dollars each year. 

Those people Wal-Mart "put out of business" would have gone out of business even without Wal Mart.  And if they hadn't, their prices would be much, much higher than what we're used to today.

Don't you mean if more of your neighbors have jobs?  Because mom & pop sure weren't hiring many people, paying them good wages, or offering good prices.

I've had Wal-Mart in my portfolio for about 30 years now. The last decade it's been a sleeper. Friday's close of $52.71 and ten years before (7/31/01) $48.34, aren't that far apart. I don't see the pps doing much at the present. I've held primarily to avoid paying capital gains. If Congress ups that tax rate then I'll sell in advance.

It is being reported that WMT will declare a 15% increase in dividends this month. That will up the current div of $1.89 to $2.17 and a 3% yield. The Walton's rely on the dividends to fund their various projects. Alice owns about 7 million shares and uses the dividends for her projects, therefore, she is all for an increase.

Suits me. I certainly don't have 7 mil shares, but it was the best investment I ever made when I stumbled upon wmt about 30 years ago.

Looks like they're going with a 2% increase in the dividend instead. Earnings outlook is not too promising. WMT has been kind to investors in the past though. I think we've had 5 or 6 splits since we first purchased shares.

Dividend (Yield)   $1.92 (2.6%)
Ex-Dividend Date 03/07/14
Dividend Pay Date 04/01/14

Well, I guess that's better than nothing. Keeps the record going of yearly increases.

I like dividend stocks, T is doing well so is JNJ

Even if you buy the idea that welfare programs are being cut, the scenario is just the opposite of the logical impact;   any form of luxury or optional spending at above market rates will be eliminated, in favor of cost effective spending, like Wal-Mart.

The problem with the WalMart generation is they value quantity over quality.  Personally, I'd rather pay more for something that is well made and will last than to be surrounded by stuff of poor quality.  I find that I come out ahead buying better quality items once than buying cheap items many times.

I personally have no problem with WalMart.  I just don't shop there often as they usually don't have what I'm looking for, other than toothpast, TP, etc.

Why not?  It is a good value stock with dividend.  I think it would perform well in a downturn, in comparison.  In all honesty though, I would look at better producing value stocks...I would say J&J or something similar, but that train might have already passed.  McDonalds?  Coke?  Doesn't matter, do a bit each month and it will work out ok.

I don't know about that, over the last 5 years it's up 12.3% per year while paying over 2% per year in dividends for a very low risk 14.3% annual return.

Sure, nothing like it enjoyed in the 80s, but a solid company that will continue to make money, albeit at a steady pace

There are several factors have appear to have really helped WMT gain traction even in the midst of the fairly widespread "blood bath" in the retailing sector. It seems obvious that a major (if the not THE major) concern going forward for many investors is the growing impact that Amazon is going to continue having on both the shopping habits of consumers and pricing/profit margin pressures on competitors of AMZN. With Amazon's buyout announcement of Whole Foods this morning even further pressure is going to be experienced for most retailers who also offer food stuffs.

At this point Wal-Mart's efforts to broaden their own online sites as well as reconfigure many stores to cater more to online and cost/service-conscious shoppers seems to be paying off. Their sales have begun to perk up and their profits/earnings seem to be on the upswing. Assuming WMT is able to continue successfully deal with the pressures of the Amazon's of the world then I believe they will continue to show decent stock performance going forward. It's obviously not going to be the classical "growth stock" of the past; however, for an investor looking for decent growth in both earning AND stock appreciation along with a growing return through dividends one could do far worse.

Yeah, but poor ole Wal-Mart obviously hasn't gotten the word yet that some have written them off as "dead meat" in the future retail space. I suppose that's why all those investment analysts were in Bentonville today listening to the "dinosaur" going on and on about their future initiatives in the online and e-commerce. Obviously someone needs to wake them up and tell them it's no use because Amazon is going to totally control each and every purchase by each and every American and there's just no use in trying to compete....and this coming from someone who does own AMZN (as well as WMT).

There's an old saying we've heard forever: "Don't try to b.s. a b.s.'r." Unfortunately so many of those vaunted Wall Street gurus have not a clue, and never had. Most are like so many lemmings.

Well it's most certainly NOT their annual shareholder's meeting. This one was held on behalf of analysts which is obviously totally different. And yes, I would totally agree that competition against Amazon, as good as they might be, is a very good thing for consumers.

I admit to a more than passing curiosity as to what the return value of an investment at the time of the OP,  would be to date, 6 years later--  say with a baseline investment of $1,000 , when figuring in dividends and current price.

Price was 53.63 on July 15th 2011.  So with 1000 you could buy almost 19 shares. We will go on ahead and say 19.  So dividends every quarter close to 50 cents.  Probably closer to 45 cents to 51 cents now, but easier math. So 9.5 dollars a quarter. 38 a year. Are we reinvesting it or just adding? 

Just adding all together  38x 6 228 in dividends. Closed at 86.63 Friday so 19 x 86.63 = 1645.97+228 = 1873.97.   So you would have almost doubled your 1000 dollars since the OP started this thread.

Price was 53.63 on July 15th 2011.  So with 1000 you could buy almost 19 shares. We will go on ahead and say 19.  So dividends every quarter close to 50 cents.  Probably closer to 45 cents to 51 cents now, but easier math. So 9.5 dollars a quarter. 38 a year. Are we reinvesting it or just adding? 

Just adding all together  38x 6 228 in dividends. Closed at 86.63 Friday so 19 x 86.63 = 1645.97+228 = 1873.97.   So you would have almost doubled your 1000 dollars since the OP started this thread. 

I hadn't tracked the dividends WM had been paying, but it should be illustrative of the overall soundness of long term investing.
