BMO Capital Markets analyst Kelly Bania reaffirmed the Outperform rating but lowered the target price to $175 from $180.

Stifel analyst Mark S. Astrachan trimmed the price target to $169.00 from $171.00 with a reiterated Hold rating.

The analyst says the Grocery business is likely to remain a modest tailwind, though lessening inflation that could become deflationary as significant pricing is lapped is a watch-point and could weigh on comp growth in FY25.

B Of A Securities analyst Robert F. Ohmes reiterated the Buy rating & $190 price target.

Ohmes raised revenue estimates to $644.8 billion (from $641.0 billion) for FY24, $665.1 billion (from $661.0 billion) for FY25, and $689.3 billion (from $682.6 billion) for FY26.

Goldman Sachs analyst Kate McShane reaffirmed a Buy rating and price target of $180.

The analyst says WMT is well positioned to gain share to offset any pricing headwinds thanks to its 3P sellers growth and fulfillment capacity across e-commerce, assortment expansion, and the lift related to remodels.
