S&P CAPITAL IQ MAINTAINS HOLD RECOMMENDATION ON SHARES OF
WALMART STORES (WMT 83 ***): We raise our 12-month target $8 to $83,
applying a P/E of 15.5X, in line with its 3-year average, to our FY 16 (Jan.) EPS estimate of $5.33. Oct-Q EPS of $1.15 vs. $1.14 is $0.02 above our estimate. Comparable store sales growth of 0.5% was above our flat estimate. We forecast improvement in comparable store sales growth through FY 16 due to lower fuel prices, easier macro-economic comparisons, an aggressive pricing strategy and a more enjoyable customer experience. However, we see margin pressures remaining due to rising labor costs and increasing investments in e-commerce./
