The Wal-Mart is the world’s largest retail store and it was most benefitted during the economic slump when the shoppers started to look for affordable and discount merchandise. The shares were impressively up in the past twelve months which helped Wal-Mart to recover the market losses and the shrinking tendency of profit in the previous year.
Wal-Mart still continues to grow as the largest retailer. The annual sales of the store are more than $405 billion. With 2 million employees and more than 8‚400 stores‚ Wal-Mart serves almost 138 million customers per week.
Christy Walton also profits much from First Solar‚ thanks to her late husband‚ where he had invested. The stocks for the alternative energy store have been up by more than 350% since 2006.
