Whole Foods price cuts with no meaningful impact on grocers, says Oppenheimer
Commenting on Amazon's (AMZN) latest round of price cuts at Whole Foods, Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh says he does not believe the reductions to date have had any meaningful impact on publicly traded grocers such as Kroger (KR), Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM), and Wal-Mart (WMT), but continues to watch developments closely. Negative headlines and uncertainty related to the price cuts likely continue to weigh on the multiples of pure-play grocery players for now, he adds. Wal-Mart and Sprouts Farmers Market remain his top grocery picks.

Citi ups targets for food retailers on tax reform benefits
To reflect multiple expansion by the group, less promotional activity and increased potential for tax reform benefits, which he thinks can benefit earnings by up to 25% on average, Citi analyst Alvin Concepcion on Friday raised his price targets names in the Food Retailer space. The analyst upped his price target for Buy-rated Kroger (KR) to $33 from $30, for Buy-rated Natural Grocers (NVGC) to $10.50 from $7.50, for Buy-rated Sprouts Farmers Market to $29 from $25 and for Hold-rated Smart & Final Stores (SFS) to $9.50 from $8.50.
