Barclays upgrades Whole Foods on potential for bidding war
As previously reported, Barclays analyst Karen Short upgraded Whole Foods (WFM) to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised her price target on the stock to $48 from $38, telling investors that she would not be surprised to see a bidding war break out following Amazon's (AMZN) announcement of a takeover agreement. Short, who thinks a strategic retail buyer would generate up to $600M in synergies from a deal to buy Whole Foods, said bidders could include Kroger (KR), Target (TGT), and Wal-Mart (WMT), all of which may "have too much to lose not to bid."

Amazon deal for Whole Foods a 'mild negative' for Vantiv, says Baird
Baird analyst David Koning believes Whole Foods (WFM) could be about 0.15-0.2% of Vantiv's (VNTV) revenue, making the deal for the grocer to be acquired by Amazon (AMZN) a "mild negative" for Vantiv. Vantiv may trade down today following that news and the guidance cut from Kroger (KR), which Koning estimates accounts for about 1% of Vantiv's revenue. However, he likes Vantiv shares given its valuation and potential for rising estimates and keeps an Outperform rating and $72 price target on the stock.

Kroger risk/reward 'favorable,' says RBC Capital
After Kroger lowered its fiscal 2017 EPS guidance. RBC Capital analyst William Kirk says that the company's increased investments in prices and labor are "alarming." However, the analyst notes that the company still had positive ID sales so far this quarter, and he thinks that it will benefit from the closure of a number of competing stores. He says that the stock's risk/reward ratio is positive, and he keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.
