2 Consumer Goods Stocks to Buy, Sell, or Hold

In today's Consumer Countdown, analysts Michael Finarelli and Sean O'Reilly play a quick round of Buy, Sell, or Hold with host Mark Reeth. In the game, Mark tells each analyst a bit of recent news about a stock, and the analyst must choose if they would buy, sell, or hold the stock based on that news.

First, Mark tells Mike about Wal-Mart's (NYSE: WMT  ) recent announcement that it will spend $200 million less in 2015 than it will in 2014, an announcement that sent the stock higher. Even tougher, Mike has to see how the company will stack up against rival Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN  ) going forward. Then, Sean has to decide if he would buy, sell, or hold Advance Auto Parts (NYSE: AAP  ) after the company announced that it would buy the Carquest chain to improve its car repair segment.
