Walmart, the giant retail shop in the USA, has published better-than-expected earnings results for the first quarter of 2021.

Besides, the company revealed strong grocery sales and e-commerce growth and upgraded its outlook for the year. Seems everything perfect! Walmart's Chief Financial Officer claimed that the company is experiencing “pent-up demand” and forecasts it to continue.
