Retail EPS: Walmart (WMT), Target (TGT)
Consumer behavior shifts during the pandemic have proven to be a revenue boon for essential retailers like Walmart and Target.
Last quarter, ecommerce helped bolster Walmart comp sales +9.3% YoY and propelled Target comps to "highest the company ever recorded" levels.
LikeFolio noted overall softening in demand in WMT and TGT in the third quarter:
- WMT 21Q3 Purchase Intent: -23% QoQ, -7% YoY
- TGT 20Q3 Purchase Intent: -11% QoQ, -13% YoY
*Important to note this does not capture the potential impact of changing ticket size, if present.
In the current quarter, digital transaction mentions are soaring driven mostly by early Holiday shopping of month-long Black Friday sales alongside some increased stockpiling activity.
We've got a close eye on digital execution through the end of the year.
