United Natural Foods. Graham Defensive Screen. The changing of the guard: Value Investors replacing growth investors.... at the right price.

Detailed Analysis   Guru Score: 100%   Find Other Stocks that Pass This Guru

SECTOR: [PASS]

UNFI is neither a technology nor financial Company, and therefore this methodology is applicable.

SALES: [PASS]

The investor must select companies of "adequate size". This includes companies with annual sales greater than $340 million. UNFI's sales of $8,269.2 million, based on trailing 12 month sales, pass this test.

CURRENT RATIO: [PASS]

The current ratio must be greater than or equal to 2. Companies that meet this criterion are typically financially secure and defensive. UNFI's current ratio of 2.56 passes the test.

LONG-TERM DEBT IN RELATION TO NET CURRENT ASSETS: [PASS]

For industrial companies, long-term debt must not exceed net current assets (current assets minus current liabilities). Companies that meet this criterion display one of the attributes of a financially secure organization. The long-term debt for UNFI is $487.9 million, while the net current assets are $1,012.3 million. UNFI passes this test.

LONG-TERM EPS GROWTH: [PASS]

Companies must increase their EPS by at least 30% over a ten-year period and EPS must not have been negative for any year within the last 5 years. Companies with this type of growth tend to be financially secure and have proven themselves over time. UNFI's EPS growth over that period of 133.9% passes the EPS growth test.

P/E RATIO: [PASS]

The Price/Earnings (P/E) ratio, based on the greater of the current PE or the PE using average earnings over the last 3 fiscal years, must be "moderate", which this methodology states is not greater than 15. Stocks with moderate P/Es are more defensive by nature. UNFI's P/E of 14.40 (using the 3 year PE) passes this test.

PRICE/BOOK RATIO: [PASS]

The Price/Book ratio must also be reasonable. That is, the Price/Book multiplied by P/E cannot be greater than 22. UNFI's Price/Book ratio is 1.27, while the P/E is 14.40. UNFI passes the Price/Book test.

This company is growing at least 10% a year in the last few years. And its' food especially for the weight challenged, so unless it is just bad, what could go wrong?

They have struck a long term deal with WFM, which will prove to be a serious money maker. More and more people are eating healthy these days. Organic food is no long just for hippies and yuppies, it's going mainstream. This is a rock solid buy and hold(for a very long time) company.

In my opinion the valuation of this company is a little high.
There are some issues with the use of cash flow the ratios are not the best of the industry.
I prefer tickets like SYY or SPTN .

It seems crazy, to me, that consumers don't mind growth hormones in their milk, and all the toxins that are taken for granted in non-organic commercial agriculture. Farmers (like my wife) say that the word Organic is a funny word because it's actually spelling out the very things we're all supposed to be doing with our food, and we have to certify it because people got greedy and farmers got lazy. Anyway, it's a growth industry (pardon the pun) in part because organic isn't a choice, really. In milk, in yogurt (in particular) it is the only option once you know the truth about growth hormones and make a purchasing decision for your own children.

all natural, organic, gluten free, no preservatives, no canola oil, ...This is what I have to hear from crazy hippie yoga instructors who drive off in their Hybrid SUV's all day when I hand free stuff out for WF's and other stores like it.. Might as well make some money off of it...

Health, its where its at. Have you noticed lately that the grocery store shelves are filled with products advertising how "clean" they are and how few additives they have. People want natural products.
