The retail giant held on to the top spot on the Fortune 500, edging out Exxon Mobil for the second year in a row. For fiscal year 2014, Wal-Mart’s net sales totaled $473.1 billion, up 1.6% from the year-earlier period. While its sales grew domestically, Wal-Mart said the expiration of a payroll tax cut, reductions in the U.S. food stamp program, and poor winter weather hurt its results. But in the U.S., Wal-Mart is bullish about its plans to open even more small stores, which compete with drugstores and small grocery stores.
