Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Research Report

On August 2, 2013, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (Walmart) announced that the Judge of
the US District Court for the Northern District of California, Charles R.
Breyer has ruled in favor of the Company in the Dukes v. Walmart
gender-discrimination class action, denying the plaintiffs' request for
certification of a California-based class. Walmart commented that it is
pleased with the ruling as it rejects the attempt of a few associates to turn
their individual complaints into a sweeping and unwarranted class action. The
Company further stated that it has had a strong policy against discrimination
in place for many years and it continues to be a great place for women to work
and advance. It asserted that allegations from these five plaintiffs were not
representative of the positive experiences that hundreds of thousands of women
have had working at Walmart. The district court issued a written opinion
finding, upon a detailed analysis of the law and the evidence, that this case
was not suitable for class action treatment. The Full Research Report on
Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and
price targets - is available to download free of charge at:
