The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, featuring host Chris Hill, and analysts Joe Magyer and Bill Mann. In this segment, the focus is on American Express' (AXP 2.29%) latest earnings report, which turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. The guys analyze the results and share why American Express' new deal with Wal-Mart (WMT 0.21%) could pay off for shareholders.

Of course, Wal-Mart also stands to benefit from its deal with American Express, but to what extent, only time can tell. To learn about two retailers with especially good prospects, we invite you to take a look at The Motley Fool's special free report, "The Death of Wal-Mart: The Real Cash Kings Changing the Face of Retail." In it, you'll see how these two cash kings are able to consistently outperform competition, and how they’re planning to ride the waves of retail's changing tide.
