This supermarket is a wild card. They have an analysts meeting on Wednesday. It thrived during lockdowns as people bought more groceries and couldn't dine out. But the stock is trading as if it'll benefit from the reopening. That could be right.

They report Thursday and there's some skepticism it can deliver a good quarter. Also, competition and labour costs may be too much for them.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly KR has been a laggard in the supermarket space, but it has now become good value relative to its peers. It trades at 10x PE compared to 31x in the sector. Earnings growth is estimated to be 49% this fiscal year. The company has invested in store remodels, new technology and is benefiting from higher margin pharmacies and fuel stations. Analysts estimate their net cash position has increased by over $2 billion in the past 12 months. It pays a good dividend backed by a 19% payout ratio. We would buy this with a $27 stop-loss, looking to achieve $40 -- over 20% upside. Yield 2.25% (Analysts’ price target is $36.30)

Lots of grocery stores have done well. Prefers Costco. If you hold KR, it will continue to benefit, but Costco is a one-stop-shop. Consumers don't want to traipse around to different stores.

She would not buy into this space of US grocers. It looks cheap, but she would stay away. It might be somewhat recession proof, because of the lower cost metrics and people have to buy groceries. It is neither a growth or income stock, so she has no real interest.

The pay a small dividend about 2-3%. The technicals suggest you stay away -- it is making lower highs consistently. Fundamentally, they are facing greater competition as is witnessed by the names on the trucks delivering groceries these days. Stay away.

A serial dividend grower? Traditional grocery stores are threatened by Amazon and hard discounters (in the U.S.). The latter dominate Europe and are a rising threat in North America. He prefers Costco who have the lowest prices anywhere; they also have the best demographics of anyone selling groceries, the wealthy, which makes Costco very defensive/safe.

This was suffering with its entire industry a few years ago but has figured out how to compete and is now doing extremely well. It has strong earnings. He expects acquisitions to be a bolt-on variety (e.g. niches). Grocery is a tough space because of entrenched competition from Amazon, CostCo and Walmart. He is not buying grocery stocks because of the difficulty of this space, but he is very impressed with the management of Kroger and their success in this space.

This had a couple of issues. First there was food deflation, which tends to cause excess competition in the grocery sector. And then there was the Amazon purchase of Whole Foods. That took the company down from $30 to $20. This is selling at about 10X earnings, compared to Loblaw’s (L-T) selling at 17-18 times. Kroger has a little more debt, but own half their stores. The largest retailer in the US. Dividend yield of 2.3%. (Analysts’ price target is $23.)
