Kroger risk/reward looks favorable, says Citi
Citi analyst Alvin Concepcion believes Kroger's (KR) risk/reward remains favorable following last week's selloff. The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $26 from $36 and keeps a Buy rating on the name. Kroger shares now trade at a 50% discount to their peer group, despite peers like Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM) and Natural Grocers (NGVC) facing greater exposure to threats from a stronger Whole Foods (WFM) in the natural/organic category, Concepcion tells investors in a research note. Amazon (AMZN) Friday announced a takeover of Whole Foods.

Amazon operational assumptions key to Whole Foods deal success, says UBS
UBS analyst Eric Sheridan took a look at Amazon's (AMZN) acquisition of Whole Foods (WFM), which he expects to be 2%-12% accretive to 2018 earnings. The analyst believes operational assumptions post close will be the key to success. He also believes regulatory issues remain an overhang for the sector and he sees the purchase as the first step into a broader physical retail presence. Sheridan maintained his Buy rating and $1,100 price target on Amazon.com shares.

Blackhawk should be bought on weakness after Whole Foods deal, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Oscar Turner notes that Blackhawk's (HAWK) stock fell 3% after Amazon (AMZN) announced that it's acquiring Whole Foods (WFM). The analyst notes that both Amazon and Whole Foods partner with Blackhawk, and he expects Blackhawk's deal with Whole Foods to continue in the wake of the deal. The analyst adds that the deal proves that the physical supermarket distribution model remains relevant. He says that Blackhawk's "commanding share will mitigate" any decrease in supermarket foot traffic, and he recommends buying the stock on weakness. Turner keeps a $50 price target and a Buy rating on the stock.

Food retailers, distributors weakness overdone, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Bill Kirk says that the weakness in food retailers and distributors in reaction to Amazon's (AMZN) acquisition of Whole Foods (WFM) was overdone. The analyst says he doesn't expect Amazon to "drastically change" the prices in Whole Foods' physical stores. Instead, he expects it to exploit the company's brand through Prime and its "high-population density real estate." Other food retailers include Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM) and Kroger (KR), while Smart & Final Stores (SFS) and Supervalu (SVU) are food distributors.
