Walmart Inc. WMT is likely to register top-line growth when it reports second-quarter fiscal 2023 earnings on Aug 16. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for quarterly revenues is pegged at $151.4 billion, suggesting a rise of 7.4% from the prior-year quarter’s reported figure.However, the bottom line is likely to have declined year over year. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for quarterly earnings has declined 12.1% in the past 30 days to $1.60 per share, indicating a 10.1% decline from the figure reported in the prior-year quarter. The supermarket giant has a trailing four-quarter earnings surprise of 2.4%, on average. WMT delivered a negative earnings surprise of around 11% in the last reported quarter.Cost Headwinds to LingerWalmart is grappling with supply-chain bottlenecks. The company’s consolidated gross profit margin contracted by 87 basis points (bps) in the last reported quarter, primarily due to Sam’s Club, wherein the gross margin fell 219 bps. This was due to supply-chain costs, a fuel mix, inflation and markdowns stemming from the delayed inventory. On its first-quarter earnings call, management stated that it expects the gross margin to remain under pressure in the second quarter, though it is likely to improve sequentially.Apart from this, SG&A costs escalated by 39 bps as a percentage of sales in the first quarter due to higher wage costs in Walmart U.S. Consolidated operating expenses as a percentage of sales increased by 45 bps year over year, stemming mainly from elevated wage costs in Walmart U.S. Some of the cost headwinds are likely to have persisted in the second quarter. These factors raise concerns for the quarter under review.Walmart Inc. Price, Consensus and EPS Surprise Walmart Inc. price-consensus-eps-surprise-chart | Walmart Inc.
