Wal-Mart Starts Holiday Product Discounting Early and 2 Other Dow Movers to Watch
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE:WMT): Current price $76.97
Did the holiday shopping season begin already? On Friday, Wal-Mart started discounting throughout its stores in an attempt to lure holiday shoppers, much earlier than the typical Thanksgiving sales at the end of November. The retailer will offer discounts across categories all the way from electronics to apparel — one example is an 8-inch Nextbook tablet, which will go for $99 in its stores; buying the device somewhere else will run upwards of $139.
