Loop Capital analyst Andrew Wolf raised his price target on Walmart to $115, saying the company's recently announced consolidation of the U.S. stores and e-commerce divisions' supply chains and financial management is positive for its continued expansion in omnichannel merchandising. The analyst notes that the perception of this consolidation as a sign of "retrenchment and/or infighting at the senior operating ranks" is mistaken.
