Walmart Misses Q4 Profit Forecast, Tops $150 Billion Sales

Walmart Inc.  (WMT) – Get Report posted weaker-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings Thursday, thanks in part to a charge linked to taxes in the United Kingdom, but still managed record sales of more than $150 billion as U.S. shoppers continued to favor big-box retailers over smaller rivals.

The world’s biggest retailer said adjusted earnings for the three months ended in January came in at $1.39 per share, rising just one penny from the same period last year and missing the consensus forecast of $1.50 per share. The company said a decision to repay property tax relief in the U.K., linked to its ASDA division, clipped earnings by 7 cents per share. 

Group revenues, the company said, were tabbed at $152.08 billion, up 7.3% from last year and topping analysts’ estimates of $148.3
