A Moment (Only) Of Truth

Reality was briefly visible through the propaganda chaff this afternoon after Bloomberg released some Wal-Mart internal email that warned of slow sales:

“In case you haven’t seen a sales report these days, February MTD sales are a total disaster,” Jerry Murray, Wal- Mart’s vice president of finance and logistics, said in a Feb. 12 e-mail to other executives, referring to month-to-date sales. “The worst start to a month I have seen in my ~7 years with the company.”

Stocks fell briefly, but the algo-driven pumping soon had them back on an even keel. The transfer of Wall Street’s stock holdings to retail bagholders investors is presumably not yet complete.

Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed.
