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

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 $490 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.
