Wal-Mart Analyst Meeting


Some Wal-Mart (WMT) investors are calling Day 1 of the current analyst meeting, a fiasco! The pressure is on now, as Chief Executive Lee Scott addresses a hostile crowd on Wednesday.

CNBC’s Margaret Brennan joined the panel for this conversation. Following are excerpts from what was said.

Wal-Mart lowered its capital spending forecast, but not as much as the Street had hoped, explained Brennan.

When Lee Scott speaks on Wednesday he will try to reassure investors and talk his stock higher, she added. Few, if any Wal-Mart watches expect Lee Scott to step down.

On a related note, Jeff Macke recommended buying Coach (COH) on Tuesday’s dip.
