They report Thursday. He wants to hear about the state of their Albertson's acquisition. The deal could be in trouble, because the FTC isn't merger-friendly.

COMMENT

proposed merger Kroger is buying Albertson's, 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 Albertson's 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 Albertson's and Safeway was a disaster, and the FTC definitely remembers that. It will be a long slog (the chances don't look good).

Kroger Co.
They reported a great quarter. It sells at 11x earnings. The bottom is coming, but the chart is so bad that people keep selling. $43 is a buy.

WEAK BUY
Kroger Co.
Skinny margins in the grocery sector, so management is key, especially with inflation. A healthier balance sheet and better growth prospects than others in the space.

DON'T BUY
Kroger Co.
It reports Thursday. It had a miserable period of underperformance, but followed with consistently good numbers despite the pandemic. But rising prices from suppliers may force Kroger to raise their own prices which will hurt margins...and share price.
