Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) has made a lot of efforts in pricing its goods attractively over the past months. This allowed for strong traffic growth, which resulted in positive comps for the company. Subsequently, Wal-Mart’s shares have been performing much better than those of its peers, which are reporting worse comp sales. Due to Wal-Mart’s power when it comes to discussing prices with its suppliers, the company is able to price its goods attractively whilst generating strong margins, which, in turn, means that the earnings power of Wal-Mart remains high (despite the low prices Wal-Mart offers its goods at), which makes Wal-Mart a compelling retail investment.
