    When Wal-Mart - or any business - makes a profit, where do you think that money goes?

    A company can spend some of its money on e.g. new land to build another store on. But when a company gets as big as Walmart, there isn't much more expansion to do.

    Most of the profit goes directly to the owners.

    Alice Walton owns something like 15% of Walmart. Her siblings own similar shares. That means she gets 15% of Walmart's profits.

    The same way Jeff Bezo from Amazon, Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook, Larry Ellison from Oracle, etc.

    They own a significant percentage of the stock in the company.
