The stock is already above the normal valuations for Walmart, as indicated by the figures and forecasts just prior to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Last year, the results highlighted a 20.7 price to earnings ratio, however, Walmart has reported growth of under 10 for years. Recent years saw it expand to as high as 27.7-times at December of 2020’s peak of $153.70. Buyers back then paid too much. They are still well underwater more than 13-months later, despite the end of fiscal 2022 report. These gains have only reared the stock towards pricey valuations.
