Walmart-Gate, Dutch-Gate, Netflix-Gate, Exit-Gate!

This could be the “exit gate” but probably not.  Over the weekend, the New York Times released a blockbuster story about Walmart’s (WMT) alleged massive cover-up of serious violations of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act involving more than $24 million dollars in bribes to accelerate store openings and bypass permit and zoning practices.  The stock was down 4.55% today, at $59.54.

Halfway through the 4th trading week of 2012, two of Sabrient's portfolios, the Sabrient Baker's Dozen 2012 and Earnings Busters, are clobbering their benchmark, the SPY, an ETF that tracks the S&P 500 index.
