NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Dow component Wal-Mart Stores Inc. WMT shares rose 1.6% on Thursday after the company reported a better-than-expected fiscal fourth quarter profit and raised its annual dividend 18% to $1.88 a share. While its first-quarter guidance fell short in part because of a delay in tax refund checks, Wal-Mart eased worries as it said spending has resumed to a more normal pattern once refund checks start to trickle in.
