Pivotal Research analyst Ajay Jain upgraded Kroger to Buy from Hold with an unchanged price target of $26. Despite a lack of near-term catalysts, Kroger shares are "simply mispriced at this time," Jain tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees parallels to when Kroger was "similarly oversold" two years ago based on the "massive disruption" caused by the Amazon/Whole Foods developments. He believes the "extreme disappointment" with the recent Q1 results has created a buying opportunity into Kroger.
