Walmart Gains as Cowen Reiterates Outperform Rating and Raises Price Target

On Monday, analysts at Cowen reiterated their Outperform rating on shares of Walmart while raising their price target to $160, up from $155. The $160 price target is based on ~29x analysts FY22 EPS estimate of $5.50, compared to consensus estimates of $4.99 per share. The Outperform rating is based on analysts believing in Walmart’s ability to accelerate its digital ad biz & drive upside to e-commerce profitability. Analysts project ad business revenue could reach $3.4bn+ by FY23 yielding 1.8% share of the digital ad market & 5% to EPS.

Walmart has some compelling prospects for ad biz growth. Walmart is in the very early innings of building its ad prowess, but analysts point to numerous positives helping to build momentum towards high growth opportunities; these include decisions to bring its media group in-house, the launch of various tools and analytics for greater control and insights for advertisers, and strong

But there’s another component to transformations, too: reputation. 

Walmart, for example, is investing heavily in technology, both as part of its epic battle with Amazon for retail dominance and from a desire to be viewed as a software behemoth. The company works with a slew of outside vendors, but is developing many of applications in-house, as well — like its recent express delivery option. The overhaul is so robust that some Wall Street analysts believe Walmart’s stock should be treated more like that of a tech company.

In the case of Aventiv Technologies — the parent-firm of prison communications company Securus Technologies that’s backed by billionaire Tom Gores — new CEO Dave Abel is

The AI partners Walmart is working with to become a software giant

  • Walmart is perhaps the best example of the commonly used mantra “every company is now a technology company”: The world’s largest retailer has invested heavily in building out its tech team to create new offerings, like express delivery. 
  • But it also partners with a slew of outside AI partners — some which it purchased — that help with operations like store cleaning, supply chain negotiations, and ad placement.  
  • “This is a company that had really focused on execution in more traditional ways of doing business and was a little behind the curve in the last few years. It’s significantly caught up,” UBS analyst Michael Lasser told Business Insider.

Walmart launches its own Geek Squad version with tech kiosks in Dallas-area stores

Walmart has launched an in-store tech services kiosk pilot program in Dallas that will compete with Apple’s genius bar and Best Buy’s Geek Squad.

Walmart has partnered with New York-based True Network Solutions to staff the kiosks and operate the program, which includes in-home installation of televisions, smart home products, the setup of PCs, tablets, WiFi and other products and a 24/7 tech support plan.

Walmart Tech Services kiosks started operating Monday in the electronics department of four local Walmart stores — in Arlington, Mesquite and two in Garland. A fifth kiosk is open in a Springdale, Ark., Walmart and the company plan to expand the pilot to 50 U.S. stores by mid-2021, Walmart said.

Online shoppers in the pilot markets will also have access to home appointments and remote set-up services.

In stores, kiosks staffers will help customers figure out their electronics needs and perform common fixes such as

Amazon isn’t the only major retailer running a massive sale this week. Walmart is launching its own big sale event—it’s literally called The Big Save—and it starts right now.

Through October 15, thousands of products will be on sale, including some of the best we’ve tested in our labs.

Even better—if you’ve signed up for Walmart+, the retailer’s new paid membership service ($12.95 per month), you can get select sale items within a day of purchasing (plus you can knock out your grocery shopping in the same online trip).

Here are some of the best deals you can find during Walmart’s competing Prime Day sale:

The Best Walmart Big Save Event Deals 2020

We are currently searching for the best deals on Wirecutter picks in this category and will add them here if we find them!

Walmart often matches Amazon’s Prime Day discounts—and vice versa—which means, come Prime Day, you may see some pretty competitive pricing between the two monolithic retailers. We’ve seen it ourselves first hand, in fact. A few years ago, Deputy Deals Editor Dan Kim watched the price of the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty air purifier drop lower and lower throughout the day as each store tried to outshine the other. Eventually, when the price felt right (and when it seemed the competition had drawn to an end), he made his purchase and ended up spending $132 (the lowest we had seen to date). Compared to the first deal the team had spotted that morning at $185, the 30% drop in price was hardly believable.

Walmart may’ve given us a sneak peek at an unreleased smart speaker from Google. A Twitter user posted a picture Thursday showing a Nest Audio device, which looks just like an official teaser for Google’s next speaker.

“Looks like walmart jumped the gun on the unreleased speaker from google,” Marcos Frausto tweeted.

Reddit user throwGNestAudio also shared images of a Google Nest Audio purchased for $100 from Walmart, noting the device’s audio quality “blows the original Google home out of the water by a very, very wide margin.”

Walmart Plus: How It Stacks Up Against Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime has been a go-to membership for years for many consumers in large part because of its free two-day–sometimes one- or same-day–shipping on a huge selection of products. For gamers and entertainment junkies, Prime routinely offers release-day delivery, making it a popular method for securing physical releases without heading to the store. Over the past 15 years, Amazon has racked up over 150 million subscribers. Now Walmart is trying to chip away at that subscriber base with its own delivery-focused subscription service that expands upon its Delivery Unlimited grocery service. Walmart+ launches today, September 15, so let’s see how it stacks up against Amazon Prime.
