Whole Foods CEO: Will become as customer-centric as Amazon

According to a transcript published by Whole Foods (WFM) of a June 16 townhall discussing the company's acquisition by Amazon (AMZN), CEO John Mackey stated: "One of the things they do better than us, they are more customer-centric than we are. They really are. And one of my takeaways is that, by God, we're gonna become as customer-centric as Amazon. We're gonna import their passion about that. Because I think, sometimes, our company's gone a little bit too much team member focus at the expense of our customers. And that's one definite evolution that's gonna happen."

Amazon could renegotiate or terminate United Natural contract, says Pivotal
Pivotal Research analyst Ajay Jain said regardless of the change of control provisions under United Natural Foods' (UNFI) contract with Whole Foods (WFM), there is no way to characterize the acquisition by Amazon (AMZN) as a non-event. Based on Albertson's United Foods contract cancellation in 2015, the analyst believes it will not be difficult for Amazon to renegotiate or terminate the United Natural Foods contract, if it so pleases. Jain said Whole Foods has more leverage over United Natural and the ability to demand further pricing concessions and will have more control over the supply chain through Amazon, making it unlikely the current agreement is truly binding. Jain rates United Natural Foods a Sell with a $32 price target.

Wal-Mart outlook still positive after Whole Foods deal, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc says that Wal-Mart (WMT) stock should be bought in the wake of the Whole Foods (WFM) deal, as the firm remains confident in Wal-Mart's ability to achieve 5%-9% earnings growth in fiscal 2018. The analyst says that the market shares of both Amazon and Wal-Mart have room to grow, and it believes that Amazon will continue to skew towards upper class Americans in the wake of the Whole Foods deal. The firm keeps a $90 price target and an Outperform rating on Wal-Mart.

Wal-Mart, Costco could be hurt by Whole Foods deal, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Scot Ciccarelli warns that Wal-Mart (WMT) and Costco (COST) could be hurt by the Whole Foods deal. The analyst says that "combining Whole Foods' high-end reputation with a logistics juggernaut like Amazon is clearly a danger" to Costco and Walmart. He thinks that Whole Foods could extend the hours in which it allows customers to buy products online and pick them up in stores, and he thinks that food delivery could become much more popular in the wake of the deal. He notes that Wal-Mart has spent a great deal of time and money on "improving its fresh and omni-channel offerings." The analyst says that Costco will be more protected due to what he sees as its "differentiated retail experience."

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.
