Citi says Whole Foods buyout would be uncharacteristic for Kroger
Citi analyst Alvin Concepcion weighs in on the speculation yesterday that Kroger (KR) could be interested in acquiring Whole Foods (WFM) for $40 per share. There are challenges that reduce the likelihood of a deal, and such a transaction could be uncharacteristic for Kroger, Concepcion tells investors in a research note. For one, the acquisition would be expensive, the analyst contends. And two, Kroger would have to lever up to 3.5 times net debt/EBITDA, he adds. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Kroger with a $39 price target. Whole Foods yesterday closed up 5% to $29.33 amid the takeout rumor.

Wal-Mart 'starting to get its act together' in grocery, says Oppenheimer
After attending Wal-Mart's (WMT) analyst day meeting, Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh admitted he did not previously look favorably upon the company's strategy to expand into Neighborhood Market and smaller format stores, but he now sees signs that the company is "starting to get its act together in grocery." If Wal-Mart follows through with grocery price investments, it could hurt Kroger (KR), Smart & Final Stores (SFS) and Supervalu (SVU) and be an "indirect negative" for Sprouts Farmers Markets (SFM), Parikh tells investors. However, he also added that he remains confident in the ability of Kroger's management team to at least hold share.

Whole Foods FY17 earnings risk not fully appreciated, says Pivotal Research
Pivotal Research said recent chatter involving Kroger (KR) and Whole Foods (WFM) follows a steady stream of bogus takeover rumors that seem to surface with little or no reasonable basis. The firm's analyst said this appears to be another head fake that distracts from core challenges facing Whole Foods ahead of 4Q16 results in early November and potential disappointing FY17 guidance. Pivotal said although Whole Foods multiple is not demanding, the extent of a FY17 earnings risk is not fully appreciated by the Street.

Piper thinks blocking of Overtime Rule came too late
An Obama-appointed judge in Texas surprisingly blocked the Overtime Rule set to take effect on December 1, Piper Jaffray analysts in the Hardlines Retail & Specialty Products space tell investors in a research note. The analysts say that regardless of whether the injunction is upheld, their research suggests that the ruling comes too late for larger companies to pull back on the planned Overtime Rule change. Payroll and IT systems are likely set to adjust this coming Sunday, they point out. Piper's analysts expect the expense headwinds from the OT rule change for retailers/restaurants to remain in place. The retailers they believe that are most impacted from the rule are Dollar General (DG), Dollar Tree (DLTR), Regis (RGS) and Sally Beauty (SBH). The restaurants they believe are most impacted are Bojangles (BOJA), Starbucks (SBUX), Sonic (SONC), Noodles & Company (NDLS), Potbelly (PBPB), Del Taco (TACO) and Zoe's Kitchen (ZOES).

UBS analyst Michael Binetti downgraded Express to Sell and lowered its price target to $10 from $16. The analyst sees downside earnings risk despite the lowered guidance given deteriorating traffic, August traffic trends that he believes are running at the low end, product issues, and potential margin pressure as the company steps up direct mail marketing in 2H 2016.
