Wal-Mart Stores (NYSE:WMT) might be seeing a rough patch currently with its recent weak guidance, and its worrying about customers still being impacted by economic factors, but Mike Murphy at Rosecliff Capital and The Reformed Broker author Josh Brown have different takes on the retailer. For one thing, Murphy observed that, “If we go over the fiscal cliff discount retailers will do well,” and that Wal-Mart has also repaired pricing and merchandising errors in its domestic stores. Meanwhile, trader Stephanie Link is impressed by Target Corporation’s (NYSE:TGT) reported quarterly earnings which exceeded analysts’ predictions, as the company brought in shoppers with a wider variety of food products along with 5-percent discounts for its cardholders. However, at the same time, she prefers Dollar Tree (NASDAQ:DLTR), which she believes holds the greater value.
