What will Walmart stock be in 5 years?

Walmart's revenue and earnings have grown by 16% and 15% over the past three years. In May 2024, WMT management raised its forecasts for the coming year. Analysts expect Walmart to do well financially over the next five years. 

All the recent predictions are optimistic. Justin Pope believes the issuer will outperform the stock exchange. The bullish scenario is for a 2-fold growth. This makes the stock attractive to add to the portfolio.

The bulls say the company has these strengths:

  • Plans to expand advertising;

  • E-commerce revenue growth;

  • Competitive pricing and cost reduction.

The current P/E multiple is higher than the industry average, but lower than that of the main competitor. This also indicates the potential for capital growth.

The company has good cash flow. The stock is a good investment because of the dividends. The payout has been increasing for over 50 years.

Pessimists think WMT may face two big problems. The first is the economic downturn and high interest rates. This can lead to less consumer spending.

The business is focused on low prices. During an economic recession, more customers will buy from them. Telsey Advisory of Joseph Feldman believes that Walmart can expand its market share.

A second problem is a new US law on retail regulation.

 

How much is Walmart worth in 2024?

In May, the company released a strong report for the first quarter of its fiscal year. It reported growth in the number of stores and sales. This result shows the good performance of all business segments. This led many analysts to raise their price targets. They recommend buying WMT. 

Experts estimate Walmart's stock as follows:

  • $75 — Citigroup, Jefferies, Bank of America and BMO Capital;

  • $73 — Goldman Sachs;

  • $70 — Telsey Advisory Group;

  • $64 — Truist Securities.

Long-Term Walmart (WMT) Forecast 2030 to 2050

Experts expect WMT capitalization to increase from 2030 to 2050. They believe in the potential for business expansion. The successes of the last year have made people optimistic. Many compare the current moment with the end of the 90s, which was the period of Walmart's bright expansion.

Even the most optimistic scenario promises less than a 300% increase by 2050. WMT stocks don't have high yields.

 

What is the 10 year return on Walmart stock?

The asset price will be affected by things that are already happening. This includes success in the e-commerce and advertising markets.

Experts say the market will grow. Even in the most moderate scenario, the prices will be twice as high as they are now. This makes the asset a good investment.

  • $135 — Stockscan; 

  • $141.79 — Stockraven;

  • $191.60 — CoinPriceForecast.

BeatMarket analysts believe Walmart will succeed. We think it will make more than 100% profit on its investments in 10 years. We also believe the company will keep being an exclusive dividend payer.

 

What will Walmart stock be worth in 2030?

David Jagielski of The Motley Fool says that WMT's value could reach $1 trillion by 2030. This is almost twice the current asset price.

Many services expect a bright future by 2030:

  • $87 — Stockscan; 

  • $103.97 — Coincodex;

  • $107.76 — Stockraven;

  • $159.99 — CoinPriceForecast.

Analysts believe the issuer will keep its market share. It has strong competitive advantages.

 

Walmart stock forecast 2040

Long-term scenarios are built with mathematical models. Financial forecasting services get them by looking at past data. They name the following target prices:

  • $168.44 — Stockscan; 

  • $180.31 — Stockraven.

WMT stock volatility is low, so the suggested values differ much less than for many other issuers.

The cost depends on many factors. The key is whether the company can keep its market share.

 

Walmart Stock Outlook 2050

The 2050 target levels for the different platforms are:

  • $224.79 — Stockscan; 

  • $248.98 — Stockraven.

The profit is about 245% to 285% more than the current price. This is about the same as the historical performance of the S&P 500. The dividend yield of WMT is also about the same.

Walmart won't do as well as tech companies. The stocks are good for conservative investors who want to build a portfolio of individual securities.
