Recent buy – Walt-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. Today I did the analysis again and WMT passed 10 out of 10. As I wrote in January WMT is slowly repositioning itself to take advantage of growing e-commerce demand. The company is investing heavily in digital and e-commerce growth.

So there is a lot of potential here!

Today (July 2nd) I bought 21 shares of WMT at $72.41 per share (incl. fees). For more information and my analysis on WMT just read my analysis here.

With this buy, I added a little bit more than € 7 (after taxes) of dividend to my Vrijheid Fonds for this year. The projected dividend income for 2016 for WMT is € 31.

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!

      Hello David,
      I was waiting for a long time also. And yesterday i decided to pull the trigger. Because it is better to be on time in the market than timing the market.

    With making a nice starting portfolio this first year theres a WMT included over here aswell!
    Better bargain price then the TGT competitor.
    I’ve got 7 shares at $72.06 each this WMT is at a great price in the low 70’s.
    WMT still got his fundamentals and will get BETTER on the track for me its a longterm buy.

    All the best,

      Hi William,
      Thanks for stopping by!
      WMT is, in my opinion, a stock for the long term (set and forget).
      And their online strategy will pay off in the near future.
      So lots of potential!

      I’ll have a look at your site and see your portfolio.
