Don’t Buy Walmart
Mike Nolan 8/30/2018 2:20:48 AM

Thank you for this insight into being a seller on Walmart, as this was an area I was not familiar. But I can tell you that as a customer, Walmart is ages behind Amazon and other competitors.

Why can I get an item from Amazon in 1 to days, but on Walmart.com it can take a week or more? Why if I want to do an instore pickup, do they waste time and money to ship the item my local Walmart, when I know for a fact it's in the store already? That makes no sense.

Compare this with BestBuy. I place an order online. Within 30 minutes I'm told I can go pick it up. In under 3 minutes I am in and out of the store. I placed a similar order at Walmart. It took a week to arrive (even though it was also sold in store). Then it took an hour and half to pick it up. Why? There was no one manning the pick up counter. Even after having customer service announce over the PA system for someone multuple times, no one showed up. When someone finally did, the person didn't know how to process it. When someone finally arrived who could, they went to the warehouse for a very very long time. When I asked why, she said they had to manually scan with her eyes for my name on every box till she found it. That there was no rhyme or reason to how it was scanned. When the item was finally handed to me, the box was badly damaged as was the item inside.

This is anything but efficient! Bullish on $AMZN and $BBY, Bearish on $WMT.

Walmart is Not the Perfect Stock. So What?
Alpha Stockman 2/26/2018 4:40:00 PM

#Walmart's acquisition of #Jet was supposed to position the company as a viable competitor to #Amazon. But I've yet to see any technical innovation as a result. Can we still expect to see any benefits? Or was it just a waste of money? $WMT $AMZN

Wal-Mart Just Isn't A Growth Company Any More
Angry Old Lady 7/17/2017 7:56:48 PM

While I know #Walmart ($WMT) and #Amazon ($AMZN) treat its suppliers and employees poorly, I also know that means greater savings for me, so I'm okay with it. No one is forced to sell to, or work for, these companies. And no one is forced to shop there. I see no issues all around.

Wal-Mart Just Isn't A Growth Company Any More
Bill Johnson 7/17/2017 7:36:04 PM

#Walmart is horrible to both its suppliers and its employees. But are #Amazon and other companies really that much better? With the exception of a standout like Wegmans, any company that wields that much clout is going to use it. $WMT $AMZN

Winner & Losers from Amazon’s Proposed Purchase of Whole Foods
Craig Newman 6/23/2017 8:49:59 PM

Shopping at #Walmart is a miserable experience. #Amazon excels at customer service. If they increase efficency at #WholeFoods, they can likely do less with more, while still keeping customer service a priority. $WMT, $AMZN $WFM

Amazon's Acquisitions Create Adverse Reactions
Carol Klein 6/23/2017 2:03:58 PM

#Walmart acquired #Jet to compete with #Amazon. Now Amazon wants to acquire #WholeFoods to compete with Walmart. I don't think Walmart's acquisition did a think for them. Hopefully Amazon's will work out better for them $WMT $AMZN $WFM

Winner & Losers from Amazon’s Proposed Purchase of Whole Foods
Danny Straus 6/20/2017 6:44:19 PM

Personally, I hope this acquisition is the end of #Walmart. Shopping there is a dreadful experience and they don't deserve to stay in business. Yes, prices are cheap but there is zero customer service, horrible wait times, etc. #Amazon could radically change all that doing what they do best. $WMT $AMZN

Winner & Losers from Amazon’s Proposed Purchase of Whole Foods
Barry Hochhauser 6/20/2017 6:41:43 PM

#Amazon's acquisition of #WholeFoods could revolutionize the industry. I don't think it will be the end of #Walmart though unless Amazon starts selling actual products in the the physical stores like Walmart does. And I don't think the Whole Foods locations are physically large enough. $AMZN $WMT $WFM

Athleisure Remains The Best “Fit” In Fashion Stocks
Kurt Benson 4/7/2017 7:56:20 PM

The downside is that these big stores like $WMT will go out of business unless they raise prices which help the consumer. It should help the dollar, but it will take time. When that does happen though, #Walmart will get more bang for their buck so it could even out. But it's a big change and there are likely a lot of unforeseen issues which could arise.
