Walmart Gears up for the Holiday Season
Walmart has started early in trying to generate more sales for the all-important holiday season. It’s the last opportunity for retailers to boost company earnings before the new year and is a big deal for corporate management teams and investors alike.
The retailer has teamed up with gaming platform Roblox to launch Walmart’s Universe of Play and Walmart Land. The former is free to access with purchases available in the game using Roblox’s virtual currency Robux.
On top of this, Walmart has expanded its Netflix Hub to more than 2,400 stores. This provides customers with a low-priced Netflix Streaming Card which gives users the ability to watch a few of Netflix’s own shows without using a debit or credit card.
Furthermore, the retailer has extended its return and exchange dates to the end of January 2023, giving more confidence to customers who buy their holiday gifts early.
Walmart also announced its intention to try and compete with Amazon’s same-day delivery service, through its recent acquisition of robotics automation company Alert Innovation which specialises in the automation of order fulfilment in supply chains.
However, in the last quarter, Walmart suffered from mismanagement in its inventory department which led to unsold goods that could not be resold. This has weighed on the share price and any mishandlings this quarter could have a negative impact on the stock.
Hedge funds also reduced their positions in Walmart for three consecutive quarters since September 2021. However, in the last quarter, there was a net increase in positions but it is too early to tell whether this will be an ongoing trend or not.

An Example Trading Idea for the Walmart Stock Price
An example trading idea for the Walmart share price could be as follows:
- Buy the stock at $143.00 to allow for current market volatility.
- Target just below the highest analyst price target at $165.00.
- Keep your risk small at a maximum of 5% of your total account.
- Time Line = 1 – 6 months
- If you buy 10 Walmart shares:
- If target is reached = $220.00 potential profit ($165.00 - $143.00 * 10 shares).
Remember that markets go up and down and it is unlikely the share price will move up in a straight line. In fact, it may even go much further down before it rises, especially considering the volatility of the stock market so far this year.
Be sure to exercise good risk management and always know how much you could potentially lose on a trade and the risks involved, as well as the costs.
