One of the largest company in the world Walmart. Thus, how Walmart does is indicative of how the economy is doing. You can watch Walmart and get an idea of how things are going, especially for "main street" America. So how is Walmart doing? Walmart is making money, but earnings are a bit lower, and same store sales in the U.S. were down 0.4%. That's not much of an indicator to go on, but Walmart is a company to keep an eye on. What other companies are "bellwether" companies to keep an eye on?
What do you think?
