Walmart Will Present Earnings On February 17
Information is not investment advice
What will happen?
Walmart, an American multinational retail corporation, will present its earnings report for the fourth quarter on February 17 before the stock market opens (16:30 GMT+2). In addition, Walmart’s management will hold a live question and answer webcast at 15.00 MT, February 17, to discuss its financial and business results.
Why is it important?
Walmart passed the Covid era without any business damage. The company sells the essential items that consumers will purchase regardless of the economic situation. Therefore, Walmart looks like a good stock to buy even in conditions of rising inflation.
In 2021, the company made a great success in developing its multichannel business. That was an essential move, and Walmart managed to provide Amazon with true competition.
If we look at the financials, both revenue and earnings are up year-over-year. Moreover, with inflation likely to remain at historically high levels, the retail sales sector looks like the best place for investing.
Also, Walmart has increased dividends for 48 years, and everything tells this trend will continue.
All these facts increase Walmart’s attractiveness to investors all around the globe, and a better-than-expected Q4 earnings report might send its stock to new highs.
Walmart, daily chart
The stock is trading right above $133, a 23.6 Fibonacci level. As we can notice, the bullish divergence occurred on the RSI chart. We expect the price will reach $143 within a couple of days after a better-than-expected report.
On the other hand, if the report is worse-than-expected, the price might drop to $127. However, $127 is the key support for this stock, so we highly doubt it might break through it. That’s why you might also place some buy orders at this level.
The second earnings season of 2022 has almost begun. From banks and tech stocks to cars and the retail sector: in this outlook, we covered the most promising releases of this summer and made several projections on the companies’ prospects.
The stock market has reversed, and now it’s going lower and lower…

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
