Timely put buyer in United Natural Foods with shares falling to 52-week lows

Timely put buyer in United Natural Foods with shares falling to 52-week lows. The stock down 83c to $26.32 and a morning sweep of 1.5K Feb 30 puts printed for $4.30. More recent trades have been for $4.99. 6.8K changed hands against 2.4K open interest, which is already the biggest OI block in the name.

RBC says United Natural holders would likely prefer walking away from Supervalu
RBC Capital analyst William Kirk said Supervalu's (SVU) 10-Q showed that its Q2 top line and margin performance were significantly worse than anticipated and he believes at this point that United Natural Foods (UNFI) shareholders would prefer walking away from the takeover deal, but he notes that most termination rights sit with Supervalu. The analyst, who also thinks the weaker than expected earnings should "give lenders pause" with financing commitments due today, keeps Sector Perform ratings on both United Natural and Supervalu.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Plains All American (PAA) and Plains GP Holdings (PAGP) were upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel. 2. Avon Products (AVP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at DA Davidson with analyst Linda Bolton Weiser citing the increased "sense of urgency" under the new CEO Jan Zijderveld displayed in his first analyst meeting, demonstrating his greater engagement in the company's operations, hiring of executives with sales experience, and "establishing a culture of accountability." 3. United Natural Foods (UNFI) upgraded to Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst William Kirk saying while core business challenges for the company remain and the risk of the Supervalu acquisition integration continues, its 6.4-times earnings valuation likely accounts for these issues. 4. KVH Industries (KVHI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Chardan with analyst James McIlree saying he expects "continued strong growth" from its Agile Plans that should result in improved margins and increased financial predictability. 5. RELX (RELX) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Nick Dempsey saying he views the current valuation as attractive. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Market Perform
United Natural Foods price target lowered to $28 from $41 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Kelly Bania lowered her price target on United Natural Foods to $28 and kept her Market Perform rating, saying the company's "weak" Q4 performance was driven by "ongoing margin mix-shift pressure and lack of pass through of freight costs". The analyst also cites the lack of visibility into the company's margins and worse than expected EBITDA contribution from the first year of its Supervalu integration efforts. Bania believes that United Natural Foods' core growth could stabilize as its "initiatives to grow sales in perimeter categories gain traction", but expects margin pressure to continue.

Equal Weight
United Natural Foods price target lowered to $33 from $43 at Stephens
Stephens analyst Ben Bienvenu lowered his price target on United Natural Foods (UNFI) to $33 from $43, stating that its FY19 guidance suggests that some of the margin pressures evident in its Q4 report will persist. Additionally, the company's increased leverage from its Supervalu (SVU) deal paired with moderating topline growth give Bienvenu pause, he tells investors. The analyst keeps an Equal Weight rating on United Natural shares.
