It sound a little odd at first to throw food-delivery outfit GrubHub Inc (NYSE:GRUB) and Walmart into the mix of mergers and acquisitions that could cause trouble for Amazon, but think about it beyond food.

GrubHub has already developed a network of super-fast delivery networks. If it could take the same platform and know-how and plug it into Walmart’s lineup of in-store merchandise, the duo could nip Amazon’s same-day delivery business in the bud.

After all, Walmart’s warehouses — its stores — are much more pervasive than Amazon’s are.

As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
