 Amazon Keeps Edge

Amazon is now worth two times that of Walmart!

Amazon’s market cap stands at $459 billion, whereas Walmart is $228 billion. Walmart in February introduced a subscription delivery program that was a rival to Amazon Prime in favor of a guarantee of free two-day shipping for orders of more than $35. Efforts such as these may cut into Amazon’s lead in e-commerce but it’s highly unlikely Walmart will overtake soon, as Amazon has invested heavily in channels and online streaming.
