The largest supermarket chain in the US. None of the analysts like it, but they are wrong. The only chain in the US that has not lost market share to Wal-Mart (WMT-N). It has cost them on the margins. Thinks the margins are going to start to improve here. Lots of cash flow. In the near future they are going to build instituted dividends.
