Amazon files trademark to get into meal kit business, TheStreet reports

Amazon (AMZN) has filed a trademark to get into the meal kit business, TheStreet reports. Amazon Technologies revealed in the July 6 trademark application that it is planning "prepared food kits composed of meat, poultry, fish, seafood, fruit and/or and vegetables...ready for cooking and assembly as a meal," as well as primarily grain-based offerings. An Amazon offering would compete with Blue Apron (APRN), which recently went public. Reference Link

GrubHub should be bought on weakness, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc recommends buying GrubHub (GRUB) after the stock fell 9% so far this week. The firm blames the decline on fears of competition from Amazon (AMZN). However, it thinks that fears about Amazon "appear overdone," and notes that GrubHub's food delivery business is profitable. It keeps a $50 price target and Overweight rating on GrubHub.

Costco weakness a buying opportunity, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict said the recent pullback in Costco (COST) shares is a buying opportunity. He acknowledged the Amazon (AMZN) deal for Whole Foods (WFM) was a significant competitive development, but he believes Costco is well positioned to effectively compete in the evolving marketplace due to its superior quality/value equation, already thin margin profile, and a loyal member base. Benedict reiterated his Outperform rating and $200 price target on Costco shares.

Deal brings Amazon within 20 miles of 63% of U.S. population, says Piper
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says an analysis done by his firm's analytics team indicates Amazon.com's (AMZN) footprint with Whole Foods' (WFM) is within 20 miles of 63% of the U.S. population, up from 46% without Whole Foods. It is clear that Whole Foods is getting Amazon more locations within highly trafficked areas, with the population reach within five miles increasing to 30% from 12%, Olson tells investors in a research note. The analysis reaffirms his belief that the Whole Foods deal is additive to Amazon's go-to-market strategy for in-store, click-and-collect, and delivery based grocery sales. Olson reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares with a $1,200 price target.

Opco sees limited near-term risks to United Natural's deal with Whole Foods
After spending time with management, Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh says he continues to see limited near-term risks related to United Natural Foods' contract with Whole Foods (WFM). The company has change of control language in place to protect its interests and the contract goes through 2025, Parikh tells investors in a research note. He adds that United Natural could benefit if Whole Foods succeeds in driving more volume to stores post the Amazon (AMZN) takeover. The analyst cautions, however, that post-2025 concerns represent an overhang for now and that it is unclear whether Amazon would build its own logistics network to service Whole Foods stores. Parikh keeps a Perform rating on United Natural. He says he left the meetings with management confident in management's ability to outperform peers through stronger execution and opportunistic acquisitions.
