      entire industry. We do think Express Scripts shares still look undervalued. Stipp: Wal-Mart posted another quarter of same-store sales growth, but profitability was weighed down a bit by investments that they are making. Glaser: Wal-Mart is showing same-store sales growth in the U.S., which is something they hadn't been doing for quite some time. But they are also having some very heavy investments that are weighing on profitability on things like building up their e-commerce services and also in higher wage costs as they are investing in labor. I think the real question for investors thinking about Wal-Mart is, will these investments pay off over the long-term? Ken Perkins, our Wal-Mart analyst, thinks the answer is probably yes . But it's going to take a really long time for these to show up. Wal-Mart is not the kind of company that can turn on a dime. If you make these investments in one or two quarters, you're not going to see the fruits of it right away. It's going to take years until you are really able to see that show up in the actual numbers. In the interim, you have these investments weighing on profitability. This has left the shares looking fairly attractive. We have a low Fair Value Uncertainty rating on Wal-Mart , so we're not looking for huge discounts to our fair value estimate until we think that that it's worth picking up the shares. And if you look at the types of valuations assigned to other retailers, Wal-Mart does look fairly attractive, but investors will need to be patient as it could take some time for these investments to pay
