(A Top Pick Aug 12/08. down 28.07%.) Biggest retail grocer in North America and the only one that did not lose market share to Wal-Mart (WMT-N). Earnings and same store sales continue to come in above expectations. Has languished because of a flight to risk and grocery stores are the ultimate anti-risk. Still a Buy.

Retail has been under pressure for over a year. Food retailers have been under even more pressure. Food prices are rising very rapidly. Grocery business is a micro margin one. With increasing costs, it is very difficult to pass this on to the consumer.
