We all have known Amazon to be this giant that was untouchable, but now Walmart has stepped up their game. The have increased their online shopping options as people now can order online and have it sent to stores for discount, and these discounts are now going to rival Amazon. A difference to keep in mind is that Walmart is using physical store locations to their advantage as Amazon does not have the large brick and mortar footprint.

Walmart Has Begun to Challenge Amazon for the Lowest Priced Products

Going forward Walmart has sent the message they are here to stay and will challenge anything Amazon or other competitors throw at them. They have been remodeling stores and upping their online presence, so this latest news should come as no surprise. This has the potential to work well because people can get the discount, but then this will drive foot traffic to the stores and it may entice people to purchase other items. There have always been rumors of Amazon creating small stores for people to shop at, but it would be interesting to see if that plays out.

Taking a look at the chart using the monthly time frame, we can see that price is changing trends back to the upside as it is creating higher highs and higher lows. With the latest news coming out, this will certainly help to stock price in its climb, but we will have to wait and see how the fundamentals change as this online shopping is implemented. The chart looks healthy and that is too be expected for a company such as this, however, do not ignore the fundamental data as that will tell us the story of how the company sees this latest addition playing out into the future.




The risk factor still remains that this company is in retail and has to face intense competition that will never cease. Not only that, the retail sector is going through a real change and that means Walmart has to change as well. An item to watch out for would be the sales volume, because if that begins to slide with the new introduction of a more robust online shopping experience, there could be a real serious underlying issue. Secondly, ensure the competition is not heating up because this space is cut throat and it doesn’t take much for it to change.

Overall, the company appears to be doing well and is taking the lead on challenging one of the largest online retailers. It will be interesting to see how the company continues to innovate and if it will grow their market share. Only you can determine if this is a good fit for your portfolio so be sure to research and if you have any questions, reach out to an investing professional and they can help to point you in the right direction.
