The phrase “too big to fail” could be aptly applied to the brick-and-mortar retail climate of today.

As various merchants wade through supply chain snags, climbing costs, and a resurgence of Covid-19, Walmart on Tuesday reported another quarter of rising U.S. sales, surpassing Wall Street expectations.

Back-To-Store Season

It is officially back-to-school season, and groceries are pretty much always in season. It’s those two categories in particular that lifted Walmart’s sales for the quarter wrapping up at the end of July:

The chain’s food sales grew $2.4 billion versus a year ago, as Walmart’s low prices and reliable inventory of meats and produce drew shoppers in.And comparable sales (those from U.S. stores and digital channels operating for at least a year), rose 5.2% in the quarter compared with the same period last year.

The solid figures put Walmart’s revenue $4 billion above analyst expectations, with CFO Brett Biggs reporting that the Delta variant hasn’t had “any meaningful impact” on the national business, as customers continue to pack stores this summer after “coming out of hibernation.”

    Kraft Heinz Co. (NYSE: KHC) is still licking its wounds after an abysmal earnings report on Thursday and a weak 2019 outlook. The consumer goods giant is looking to reshape its business as consumer tastes continue to evolve. According to reports, the firm – backed heavily by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc.(NYSE: BRK.A) – is considering a deal to sell its Maxwell House brand. Warren Buffett is also affecting shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). Although AAPL stock added 0.4% in pre-market hours, Buffett said he would not purchase more shares of the company stock at these levels.

Just this morning Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), as well as other large banks, are out with key earnings reports. This matters for the 2017 call and it matters for the share price which has skyrocketed in the last few months. It’s about the performance.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019

For pretty much three years now, Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) stock has been almost remarkably range-bound. SBUX stock had been one of the market’s better performers for years, but since July 2015, it has stayed almost entirely between a low price of $54 and a high price of $63.

At this point, I’m not sure what gets the stock out of its range. The unfortunate incident in Philadelphia last week hopefully won’t have a long-term impact. I like Starbucks as a consumer, and it’s not as if business is going to collapse.

But the problem remains that Starbucks stock is pricing in more growth than it appears capable of generating. Tax reform has brought in the earnings multiple assigned to SBUX stock, which now sits at a more reasonable 21x. But that still assumes a level of growth that I’m not quite sure Starbucks is capable of generating long term.

And in the near term, with earnings due on Thursday, there’s reason for caution as well. All told, I do think there’s an attractive price for Starbucks stock, but I don’t think $58 is quite it.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019: Ford Motor Company(F)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Daniel Miller]

    Ford Motor Co.(NYSE:F) doubled down on China during 2012 when it placed a $5 billion bet that a fifth car factory, as well as a slew of new vehicles and engines, would help build that nation into a second pillar of revenues and profits. At first, the results were promising. From 2012 through 2015, shareholders could always count on the sales numbers out of China as a pick-me-up. Fast-forward to May 2018, however, and one thing is clear: Ford China sales data is no longer something to look forward to.

French oil giant Total announced Wednesday that it was abandoning a gas project in Iran after failing to obtain a waiver from the Trump administration to do business in Iran. The sanctions are expected to decline global output at a time that OPEC is already working diligently to push oil prices higher by containing excessive global production.
