The best prices in town really only add up to big profits for Wal-Mart shareholders. Annual sales total more than $300 billion per year. In 20 years, the price of Wal-Mart stock (NYSE:WMT) has risen almost tenfold. But Sam Waltons Frankenstein has killed off countless small businesses and destroyed hundreds of thousands of jobs.
