Walmart extends 'returnship' program aimed at helping women rejoin the workforce

WMT

Walmart extends 'returnship' program aimed at helping women rejoin the workforce. Research from the Center for American Progress published in 2014 found that the average American woman who took a five-year career break at age 26 lost roughly $467,000 in lifetime earnings, including potential income and retirement savings. To help more women transition back into the workforce, many companies, including Walmart, are now offering paid mid-career internships, known as "returnships," as part of their recruiting strategy. "Last year around this time I shared the exciting news of a program Walmart was launching in partnership with Path Forward," Bobbie Grafeld, VP of People for Walmart Labs, said in a statement on the company's website .

Why Walmart Is the Microsoft of 2019

WMT

Walmart (NYSE: WMT) delivered its fiscal first-quarter report last week, and once again, the company looked strong. Same-store sales grew solidly, it beat on earnings, and if revenue came in a little below target, some of that could be traced to currency fluctuations in foreign markets. But it was e-commerce, with its 37% growth, that put the spring in the retailer's step. In this segment from Motley Fool Money, host Chris Hill and senior analysts Andy Cross, Ron Gross, and Jason Moser discuss the long, steady evolution of Walmart into a digital powerhouse, and what it means for investors -- and the retail space broadly. I can't think of a single quarter where they just knocked it out of the park with e-commerce being up 80% or something like that. But you start stacking up these 20%, 30% gains, and it pays off. Andy Cross: Guys, I think Walmart is the Microsoft equivalent in 2015. And Doug McMillon may be the Satya Nadella of 2019.

Target or Walmart Stock … Which Is a Better Bet Here?

WMT AMZN

InvestorPlaceMay 22, 2019, 1:38 PM GMT. For about a decade, the brick-and-mortar retail stocks have suffered tremendous losses at the hands of Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN). Some have fared better than others. Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Target (NYSE:TGT) while they lag the S&P 500, are up around 30% in five years. Conversely, this morning Target stock is up 7% on its earnings report, so clearly they are executing on plans better than most. This is a prior ledge, so there will be sellers here. However, eventually and if markets continue higher, TGT stock should be able to close the gap to $84 per share, where the next resistance and opportunity will lie. Since the geopolitical headline risks still loom, I’d rather own a stock that has less froth built into it. For whatever reason, these two stocks are performing about the same on Wall Street, so why not bet on the one that has less to lose in case we do correct. So in summary, while I like the job that both Walmart and Target are doing, from a trading perspective I’d rather allocate new money to Target here in this uncertain headline trading environment.

Exclusive: Walmart to make first direct pitch to big corporate ad buyers at New York event

GOOG GOOGL +2 more GOOG GOOGL WMT AMZN

Exclusive: Walmart to make first direct pitch to big corporate ad buyers at New York event. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Walmart Inc will meet large consumer goods companies and advertising firms for the first time in New York next week to pitch its advertising business, as the world's largest retailer aims to rev up its website and stores as a platform for other companies to reach customers. Walmart's pitch will be simple: encourage some of the biggest advertisers to shift their spending to Walmart and away from rivals like Google, Facebook Inc and Amazon. And Walmart says that its massive customer base and data on what shoppers purchase give it a compelling edge. As consumer behavior has shifted, a growing number of shoppers now begin their product searches on Amazon instead of Google, forcing companies to move their ad budgets to Amazon - a significant change that bodes well for Walmart. Stefanie Jay, vice president and general manager of Walmart Media Group, told Reuters the company's "core differentiator" is that its ad offerings are informed not just by online purchase behavior and intent but also by data on what people are buying in stores before and after they see an ad, something its online rivals are unable to see.

Bernie Sanders to Attend Walmart’s Annual Meeting

WMT

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has revealed plans to attend Walmart Inc.’s annual shareholders’ meeting in its home state of Arkansas, according to The Washington Post and other published reports. At the meeting, set for June 5, Sanders intends to raise the issues of higher pay and more comprehensive benefits for the company’s employees, as well as to introduce a measure to give hourly employees a place on Walmart’s board. “If Senator Sanders attends, we hope he will approach his visit not as a campaign stop, but as a constructive opportunity to learn about the many ways we’re working to provide increased economic opportunity, mobility and benefits to our associates — as well as our widely recognized leadership on environmental sustainability,” Walmart said in a statement. A longtime critic of the mega-retailer, Sanders has introduced legislation, along with Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., to raise wages at Walmart and other large corporations.

Shopper Amy Whitaker who witnessed the bizarre drama told Pirate FM that it's not the first time having bees swarmed at a car. Melanie Williams commented that she believes there must be a swarm at the Foundry end of the town as she had a huge swarm in her gardens in Mellanear Road last summer.
