Walmart is one stock that can potentially outperform if the US economy takes a downturn. Many analysts consider Walmart a good stock to own through a recession since its discounted stock can be in even greater demand during a recession when consumers have less disposable income.

Is Walmart a good stock to consider buying on any increasing US recessionary fears?

From June 27 through to August 15 Walmart has gained 8 times over the last 1 years. The average return has been +4.83% and the annualised return has been over 40%. The largest gain was +13.89% in 2020. Will Walmart repeat this strong seasonal pattern again this year?
