Aldi to invest $3.4B to expand U.S. store base by 2022, Reuters says

Aldi plans to invest $3.4B to increase its U.S. store base to 2,500 from 1,600 by 2022, ramping up competition with rivals Wal-Mart (WMT), Kroger (KR) and Tesco (TSCDY), Reuters reports. The expansion, which will create 25,000 U.S. jobs, comes as German rival Lidl plans to open 100 stores in the country on June 15 and grocery chains compete to offer consumers lower prices.

Teva faces 'underappreciated risk' from major generic RFPs, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst David Maris noted that Teva's generic drug price erosion came in at 7% in Q1, adding that Teva's management, which previously indicated that they expected price erosion in the U.S. to be 5%, "did not explain well" how the factors that negatively impacted prices were not fully anticipated. Also, there are currently two major generic Request for Proposals out for bid - one from Express Scripts (ESRX), Albertson's and Kroger (KR) and one from Walmart (WMT) and McKesson (MCK) - and the potential price reset from these is an "underappreciated risk" facing Teva, added Maris, who keeps a Market Perform rating on the stock.

Pivotal skeptical of buyout chatter, reiterates Sell on Whole Foods
Pivotal Research analyst Ajay Jain reiterates a Sell rating on Whole Foods Market with a $20 price target ahead of the company's Q2 results on Wednesday. The shares closed Friday at $36.87. The results "should provide a dose of reality regarding fundamentals," Jain tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. The recent traffic declines are "alarming," and would be "much worse" without the benefit of newer stores in the comp base, the analyst contends. Jain sees little activist investor JANA Partners can do to address the core issue of declining customer traffic. The analyst is also skeptical about the recent buyout chatter involving Kroger's (KR) and Albertson's possible interest in Whole Foods.

Whole Foods more logical target for Kroger than appreciated, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Edward Kelly has been a big advocate of the turnaround opportunity at Whole Foods (WFM) for some time, but he also believes the market underappreciates the potential to unlock value through a sale to a strategic buyer. The analyst sees Kroger (KR) particularly well-positioned to bid for this still high quality asset, adding that an acquisition by the latter would make a lot of sense. Other suitors could also emerge, as evidenced by news of Amazon's (AMZN) interest last year, he adds. Kelly reiterates an Outperform rating and $40 price target on Whole Foods' shares.
