Well, well, Walmart earnings are out and the Street did not like them (source--MSN Money 13 May 2005).

Walmart took a hit, both on Thursday and Friday--still dragging along the bottom of its 52-week range--in fact, as I pointed out earlier, anybody who bought Walmart in January 2000 is still considerably below water.

Interestingly enough, however, Target did fine, and Costco is still in the middle of its 52-week range. Aside from Walmart, the retail sector appears in good shape.

Certainly hope Doug R and "Martin" followed their own advice and rushed out to buy Walmart stock when they were urging everybody else to do so. I'm sure they did buy it then, since they certainly wouldn't want to be considered hypocrites.

The word is that Walmart is feeling the effects of its wretched policies towards its own employees, resulting in an amazing cornucopia of legal problems (perhaps they should change their name to "Lawsuits R Us"). The suits include gender discrimination and wage and hour violations, among many, many others.

But not just that--Walmart is "struggling with same-store execution".

Translation: Walmart is rotting.

Come on now, Doug R and "Martin"--get out there and buy that wonderful Walmart nerchandise you crave so much. Don't let the team down.

With "Martin" 's wonderful instincts, its no wonder he's such a successful businessman.

You've been looking in the mirror too much lately.


As anyone who's met me can tell you--wrong on all 3 counts.

Try slim, cleanshaven, with lots of blond hair (on my head, even).

And taller than you.

Of course, that's no real challenge--I suspect half the women on Mudcat are taller than you--one of the myriad (look it up) sources of your insecurity and resentment of the world at large.

So you're 0 for 3 (or 0 for 4 if you count "Socialist".)

Of course, you're the one who brought up appearances. Most of us realize how important they are--not.

Why don't you go back to guitars?-- (as I said earlier, the one topic you may possibly know something about).

Indeed, excellent suggesstion---why don't you and Mr Rosenmutter ("Martin") rush out and buy Walmart while it's down?--I'm sure you wouldn't want to to be thought hypocrites for not doing what you urge others to do.

Walmart at this point is what is known as a "mature" stock---read "rotting".

Enjoy!

Way back up the thread somewhere, Dianavan said:

There's also a story circulating that WalMart was busted for transporting illegal alien to clean their stores. Any truth to it?

You got a wrong handle on the story, Dianavan.   Close, but no cigar.

Wal-Mart was having outside contractors come in to clean the stores. The INS jumped the contractors for using illegal aliens. There were charges against Wal-Mart (as I recall) for not supervising the contractors who were being brought in to clean, to make sure they were using only legals.

No-one (at least to my knowledge) claimed that Wal-Mart was "transporting illegal alien(s) to clean their stores", but only that, in the never-ending search for the lowest-priced vendor, they were turning a blind eye toward the vendor's practices. The idea was, "They must have known," or maybe "They should have known."

If I'm mistaken in the above, I'm absolutely sure someone will correct me.

Mr. Rosenmutter (AKA "Martin"):

Don't bother to tell us you had the vision to get in at the start of Walmart. Your credibility in this, as on virtually everything else ---(please, "Martin"--talk to us about guitars--it's the only thing you may know something about)---is somewhat below zero.

As one of my most admired stock analysts on this forum (recognize anybody, "Martin"?) said "This just in":

Walmart hit another 12-month low yesterday.

January 2000 to January 2005 Walmart has been worse than stagnant. Hit about 68 in January 2000. Never even has hit 65 since then. Yesterday's close was about 47.

In that time (Jan 2000 to Jan 2005) Costco almost doubled.

Yes, with your superior knowledge, I'm sure you're a giant in the business world.

Hubby--

"This thread is doomed" 7:35 AM 20 Apr 2005----if you think about it a bit, you may just possibly figure out that every thread is doomed. Duh.

But it can always be resurrected. So, in common with most of what you've said, that statement is meaningless.

2 nephews of yours refused to join the union, so you're not a big fan of unions. OK, fine.
As Dianavan has pointed out, however, that was their choice--you make your choice and you live with the consequences. And pointing this out is by no means a personal attack--unless you're so sensitive as to perceive it that way.

If you can't stand the heat....


It's also clear from what you've said about workers that you would be the "boss from Hell"--well, I sure can't think of anybody who would voluntarily work for you.

I'm sure that your attitude toward workers had absolutely nothing to do with the failure of your businesses. On the other hand ,as I pointed out, Bobert, with his far more generous attitude toward employees (and people in general), started a successful business. I'm sure it's just total coincidence.

Also, still waiting for your comments on the Maryland legislation--I wonder why they would think Walmart should be contributing more toward medical care for the poor--unless it's for the reason I cited--Walmart systematically underpays its lower-paid workers, and provides such abysmal health care coverage that it has to be forced to do what it should already be doing.

Yes, I know you think companies have no obligation beyond paying minimum wage--certainly none on health care.

Ah, for the good old days before the labor movement. Sorry--they're gone--you lose.

As for the "wisdom" of the US electorate now voting conservative--actually it's pretty clear that the result this time was primarily due to the successfully hate- and fearmongering campaign of our illustrious "leader". Demogoguery works--that's been obvious long before Germany in the 1930's.

Always glad to hear your response.

But--just think-- if you want the thread to die, all you have to do is not respond.

OK, let's try this again. Hubby, like Martin, you are full of shit. When facts fail you, you fall back on tired old cliche's that simply aren't true. Historically, it wasn't the unions who started the violence. It wasn't the unions that had the National Guard, Pinkerton's and assorted other thugs killing it's members, their spouses and their children. Read about Ludlow sometime.

If you were half the patriot you seem to think you are, you would understand that your nephews tried to gain employment at a shop that had a union agreement. The law says that they must become members. Would you like to know why? It's because the union was formed when the folks that worked there chose to create a bargaining unit in a government supervised, democratic election. This is not a radical concept. There are many things in a society such as ours that we must comply with, even if we are opposed. Like taxes. If I had my way, I wouldn't pay one cent to support this stupid war we are in. If I had my way, not one cent of my property/income taxes would be used to give Walmart tax breaks when they don't need them. But I live in a democratic republic, believe in it, fought to defend it, shed blood for it, so I live with the rules. It is a great concept, and you really ought to look into it.

Doug, you are normally pretty intelligent, but when you have nothing better to say, you resort to the cheap shot. The evidence is pretty conclusive. The destruction of peoples collective bargaining rights have many reasons, not the least of which is a concerted effort by business interests, and their lobbyists, and their shills in the Republican party, to weaken the laws which protect workers who simply want a voice in their workplace.

And hubby, one more thing. Walmart, if they are following the law (which they generally don't), doesn't get to choose if they have a union. But they violate the law wholesale, intimidate the workers, and that is how they remain union free.

Which brings me full circle to the question that all you right wing wacko's refuse to answer. How is it that decent, upstanding, respect-the-laws, let kids die to defend us, conservatives such as yourselves don't seem to have values when someone continually break the law? This company has a record that is a mile long, but that doesn't seem to bother you. Why? Because you are hypocrites, that's why.

Although I appreciate your critiquing of my business experience, both of you have no clue nor would even attempt at guessing the true reasons why I have closed the businesses that I have had. Stop trying to turn this dialogue into a demon hunt because you can't support your own ideas. It just shows how desperate the union mentality is to be back to your glory days before the American electorate got smart and started voing more conservative.
The days of the UAW, Teamsters, AFL-CIO, and whatever other leg-breaking, bat-toting, thug organizations you guys belong to are long over. Reagan was right whenever he fired the ATC's for their illegal strike. I just wish that some of the companies in the US would have the guts to do that instead of moving out of the country because of the extortion tactics that you guys seem to hold dear to your hearts. It's true....you guys cost more jobs than you create.
Face the facts. You bitch about wages and benefits but you still manage to collect those union dues each and every month come hell or high water. I've got a nephew who tried and tried to become a steel worker and finally had to join the NAVY to become one. Why, do you ask? Because nobody would hire him due to the stranglehold that the United Steel Workers union have on all the big construction companies and telling them that they can't hire non-union steel workers. He refused to join the union and he couldn't get a job. How's that for putting people to work? I've got another nephew that wanted to work on a loading dock for a trucking company but didn't want to join the Teamsters. He was fired because of the stranglehold that the Teamsters have on the trucking companies which dictate to them that they can't use casuals who don't belong to the union. What did he do? He joined the Army.
You know......on second thought.....maybe unions are a good thing. There's two shining examples of how unions have caused two very fine upstanding young men to join the military to fight for your freedom of telling people why they can't have the high paying jobs that your forever complaining about. I owe you thanks. Keep up the good work....pretty soon we'll have all the good ones and you'll be stuck with the WM rejects.

New year low is irrelevant when one had the vision to get in at the beginning, Ron Davies

So, the question now becomes--are they ignorant or hypocritical?

"All of the above" is the correct answer.

Of course, they could simply be complete assholes.

(like the soon-to-be-confirmed U.S. ambassador to the UN)
