Profit decline for Walmart in spite of sales growth



The largest department store group globally, Walmart, saw a 2.6% increase in quarterly turnover, however, its profit forecast for this year has been lowered due to e-commerce investments.

Walmart has decreased its forecast for profits for the rest of the year.  It was expecting a $5.10 to $5.45 profit per share, but has decreased its forecast to $4.90 to $5.15 per share.

The company that operates out of Bentonville in Arkansas has offered three main reasons for this decline in profit.  Its employee health care costs have increased; it placed massive investment into expanding its e-commerce offerings and an increased tax rate.

The focus on e-commerce comes as no surprise.  Based on equal exchange rates, its internet sales increased by 24% during the last quarter and it experienced double-digit sales growths in Brazil, China, the UK, and the US.
