Recent buy – Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

In January 2015 I did my analysis of Wal-Mart. Back then WMT passed 7 out of 10 from the Pollie-code. In July I did the analysis again and WMT passed 10 out of 10. On the basis of this analysis I bought 21 shares of WMT back then in July.

Since then WMT dropped in price. The stock is down more than 17% YTD. At this moment WMT is attractively priced with a P/E of 12.27. That’s significantly lower than the broader market. All in all I think now’s a pretty good time to add to my existing position and averaging down.

Today (October, 23th) I bought 24 shares of WMT at $59.30 per share (incl. fees). For more information and my analysis on WMT just read my analysis here.

With this buy, I do not add some passive income to my Vrijheid Fonds for this year. The projected dividend income for 2016 for this purchase of WMT is € 40.

I’m not the only one who is buying WMT. Some fellow DGI’s also bought WMT lately.

Again a small step in my journey. And one-step closer to my goal.

Has anyone else invested in this company recently? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

    Ciao Polly,

    I got some more WMT @ 58.50, not looking to add more but I did say the same thing before so let’s wait to see what the market has in hold for them. 😛
    I think that the spell they are going through will change once all the projects that they have in place will start taking form.

    Ciao ciao

    I’m with you on that as well! Great timing to get in for those who aren’t already or to add some! WMT has become a little riskier because of recent announcements, but it still remains a strong dividend payer that will surely get back on its feet.
