Walmart staff fear retailer is spying on their social media activity, BI says

Some Walmart workers fear that the retail giant is spying on their social media activity after one was fired this week for anonymous Reddit postings, Business Insider's Hayley Peterson reports. The fired employee was a regular contributor to an active Walmart-focused subreddit with over 54,000 subscribers, Peterson notes. The worker was fired earlier this week for sharing confidential information, including internal company documents, about a new company initiative called Great Workplace that is being tested in certain stores, the author says.

Walmart making progress toward e-commerce profitability, says Morgan Stanley
After an article in Recode suggested Walmart is losing $1B per year in its U.S. e-commerce division, Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman noted that Walmart management has never quantified U.S. e-commerce losses, but has indicated losses will rise again in 2019. He estimates losses growing to about $1.7B in 2019 from about $1.4B in 2018. With that said, Gutman said he sees a path to e-commerce profitability that involves a more favorable product mix and fixed cost leverage, which are both areas where he believes the company is making progress. Gutman keeps an Overweight rating and $115 price target on Walmart shares.

Costco price target raised to $289 following 'solid' June comps at Stifel
Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan noted that Costco (COST) reported "solid" June comparable sales growth of 5.1% total and 5.3% for its U.S. core business, which were both a bit better than consensus forecasts. He reads the results as an indication that Costco can coexist with large hardline competitors like Walmart (WMT) while having limited cannibalization from Amazon (AMZN), Astrachan tells investors. He also continues to view it as "reasonable" that Costco could declare a special dividend in the next few quarters given its "sizable and increasing" cash balance. Astrachan keeps a Buy rating on Costco shares and raised his price target on the stock to $289 from $261.
