A disappointing fourth-quarter earnings report sent Walmart Inc (NYSE: WMT) stock tumbling 10 percent last week, as WMT had its worst single day of trading since January 1988. Now that the dust has settled on Walmart’s horrible quarter, analysts and investors must determine whether the latest numbers are an aberration or the beginning of a new trend. Most of the headlines from the fourth-quarter earnings report focused on a dramatic slowdown in online sales growth, which dropped from 50 percent in the third quarter to just 23 percent in the fourth quarter.
