Prefers the management teams on Loblaws (L-T) and Metro (MRU.A-T) because of their history of better execution. Some day, this will be a wonderful turnaround but, the question is when.

Doesn't like the whole sector. This company missed out on the A & P acquisition. The big risk is the headline worry of Wal-Mart coming in.

Sobeys has reported earnings which are in-line. They are positive. They have had a trying time as Walmart comes in with its big box stores. Hold if you own, but don't buy right now.

Prefers Loblaws (L-T) and the reach they have. Likes the way they have gone head to head with Wal-Mart (WMT-N). There isn't a better managed company in the food sector. Also prefers George Weston (WN-T).

Food market in eastern Canada is extremely competitive. For them to grow, they have to do it on a long term basis and doesn't think it will give much return.

Its problem is that they have Loblaws as a competitor. Has a habit of blowing up every once in a while. Would prefer Loblaws which has higher valuations, buy pays off.

In the broad context of the market, this is a nice place to hide. Won't be as volatile as many other sectors. Would rather own Loblaws or Metro, especially Loblaws.

Grocery business is a tough industry to make money in. Loblaws has the economic clout, geography and management experience to dominate any market. Margins are being hurt.

Has expanded into Ontario by buying smaller chains but feels they are finding this new market's competition tougher than expected. Margins and earnings have suffered. Loblaws is now moving into the Maritimes.

Good operators. Have paid down the debt that was created by their acquisition. They tripped in the last quarter and blamed the blackout. This is questionable. Longer-term should do well. Would prefer Loblaw's.
