COMMENT
proposed merger Kroger is buying Albertsons, but the White House won't allow it, he thinks. The deal is worth $24.6 billion. Now, he's changing his mind. If the deal goes through, then Albertsons will gain huge. Both stocks have been lagging before this deal. Together, they would have a lot of heft with suppliers, boosting free cash flow and lower admin costs (among other benefits), reaching $1 billion in synergies in four years (say the companies). They would be the second-largest grocer in the U.S. But the merger of Albertsons and Safeway was a disaster, and the FTC definitely remembers that. It will be a long slog (the chances don't look good).

DON'T BUY
Large US grocer. Checkered past. Public, then private, then public. Balance sheet makes him nervous. Skinny margins, so management is key, especially with inflation. In the space, look at KR instead, with a healthier balance sheet and better growth prospects.

BUY
He recommended this when it languished last year. Sure enough, it rose after two good good quarters. It's doubled, though has pull back from highs. This has room to run. Buy it ahead of its Tuesday report.

BUY
They report Monday. He doesn't like supermarket companies, because of their low margins, but Albertsons has been expanding theirs. He's liked this since it went public.
Consumer Products
DON'T BUY
It exhausts him. They delivered a great quarter and he interviewed the CEO. Yet the stock doesn't rise. Maybe the supermarket business is not that prosperous.
Consumer Products
BUY
This major U.S. supermarket chain hasn't done much since it went public in June, but saw a lift today, driven by fears of a Covid lockdown this fall. It sells at a cheap 7x earnings, one of the cheapest on the market. It operates over 2,200 supermarkets under Albertson's and Safeway banners.

DON'T BUY

He liked ACI when they IPO'd but last week, Kroger (a rival supermarket chain) reported an amazing quarter that didn't help lift ACI in this sector. ACI is cheap but needs a catalyst to rise. He needs to study this stock more.

Consumer Products
BUY
The 2nd biggest grocery chain in the U.S. have been cutting debt. It's enjoying tailwinds during the pandemic as people still need to buy groceries. Defensive.
