Walmart: Earnings in Focus

Walmart Earnings: May 16th

Walmart is reporting earnings on Thursday, May 16th, before the bell. This is one of the most important earnings reports this week because it will show investors how the largest retailer in the United States and the world is faring. Between high inflation, consumer sentiment, and behavior, various factors could impact the most recent report from Walmart.

Last quarter, Walmart had a few shining factoids to note, including its resistance in times of high inflation. Walmart noted a fantastic holiday quarter that continued even after the holidays, in addition to e-commerce growth, and a Vizio acquisition. They also had a successful stock split that tends to attract more investors (including employees, which was a primary goal), in addition to raising their dividend.
