Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) continues its busy year of e-commerce M&A activity with the purchase of trendy online clothing seller ModCloth.

The company didn’t disclose the amount it paid for ModCloth, although the Business of Fashion reports the price fell somewhere between $51M and $70M.

Wall Street leans bullish on Wal-Mart (10 Buys, 18 Holds, 4 Sells) amid the company’s margin-pinching battle with Amazon and ongoing pressure in the broad retail sector.

The firm reasons that’s WMT’s price-earnings multiple will expand toward 19-20X as the e-commerce mix increases and price investments stoke store traffic.

Shares of Wal-Mart closed at $69.89 on Friday vs. a 52-week trading range of $62.72 to $75.19.
