Earnings are a little light and WMT is selling off in the pre-market. As of this writing the stock is trading around $69.25.
A dip in WMT is a buying opportunity. Under normal market conditions, we would have recommended initiating a position or adding to a position right here in the pre-market. However, at this time the risk in the overall market is high, therefore it is prudent to wait for a further pullback.
