GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. operates retail stores in various formats under various banners. Its operations comprise of three reportable business segments, Walmart U.S., Walmart International and Sam's Club in three categories retail, wholesale and others.

Wal-Mart is the largest retailer in the world with around $500 billion in annual revenue and about 11,700 stores (including supercenters, wholesale warehouse clubs, and small-format stores). The firm is also expanding into the e-commerce realm (as evidenced by its recent acquisition of Jet.com), but sales through this channel represent less than 5% of its total. Groceries and consumables account for roughly half of sales, with the remainder from general merchandise, including fuel, hardlines, apparel, entertainment, and home goods.

Guru Investment Theses on Walmart Inc

Jeff Auxier Comments on Walmart - Feb 06, 2018

Walmart (NYSE:WMT)’s continued effort to strengthen their online offerings to compete with Amazon is gaining more traction as eCommerce sales grew 50% in the quarter. As a result, 63 Sam’s Clubs are slated to close and approximately 12 will be converted to online fulfillment centers while scaling back Walmart brick-and-mortar growth in the US.



From Jeff Auxier (Trades, Portfolio)'s fourth quarter 2018 shareholder letter.

Ruane Cunniff Comments on Walmart - Oct 13, 2016

We reduced our holding in Walmart (NYSE:WMT) during the quarter, and exited the stock in early October. Over our 11-year holding period, Walmart generated a positive total shareholder return but modestly underperformed the S&P 500 Index. Walmart remains a formidable company, but over the past decade its dominance has waned. International expansion has never generated good returns for shareholders, while Walmart has struggled to develop a winning e-commerce strategy. We think higher wages for its entry level workers, continued growth at Amazon and the need to invest heavily in e-commerce will put pressure on Walmart’s earnings over the next few years.
