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.

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.

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.
