If you had to pick just one name, one brand…….a single company that just “screams America” like no tomorrow – which company would it be?
Walmart Stores reported disappointing earnings for its fourth quarter and fiscal year, citing domestic problems like severe storms, cuts to federal benefits, an economically struggling customer base and international uncertainties like currency fluctuations.
The company announced on Thursday that profit in the fourth quarter, which included the pivotal holiday shopping season, was down 21 percent from the same period last year!
Down 21% from the same period last year!
Storms? are you kidding me?
Cuts to “federal benefits”? you can’t be serious…
An economically struggling customer base? No shit.
And my personal favorite “uncertainties like currency fluctuations”…..Walmart concerned about “currency fluctuations”? ( Now that’s just hilarious as…again “no shit” – your own local currency being taken to the woodshed by the Fed!)
By the time you’ve got Walmart in your sites ( as pretty much the lowest common denominator ) and even “that’s a miss”! You’ve really got to ask yourself….seriously…..
What’s with all this talk about recovery?
Get the lipstick out man ( perhaps purchased at a .99 cent store? )……this pig needs a touch up.
