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.
