+ Watch WFM
on My Watchlist
Whole Foods brings the world of natural and organic foods into the supermarket format.
3rd q profits will exceed expectations
Recent decline provides buying opportunity. Risks of further price reductions and increased competition appear to be priced in and the square footage growth discounted. Private label growth may offset price pressure as well. 365 tortilla chips are good.
Although WFM was a leader in the organic food and healthy eating trend, it has recently found out that a lot of others stores have caught up to them and even surpassed them on prices. I think WFM will meet its competitors on pricing where it must while still innovating and expanding its store count. Its brand is strong and I think management will continue to lead WFM in the right direction.
people should short sell it to make money
Margin contraction likely.
Outperform - a bumpy patch of late, but prices will adjust, customers will remain loyal, and a reasonable growth plan (number of stores) will allow WFM to outperform for the next year.
Well run company with room to expand. New pricing strategy will attract additional customers and improve proceeds.
Looks intersting at this rate.
Whole Foods is so much more than a grocery store...
WFM is a good company. At $39 it is priced to outperform the market. It has good management and devout customers. It has room to grow.
Whole Foods has been beaten down too much, says insider buying from Director John Elstrott.
In the short term Whole foods is recovering from a couple of bad quarters but it is on solid ground. It still has much expansion to do and is a leader in the healthy and organic food lines. It will still influence others with its ideas.
Beaten down category leader that has a long runway for growth. Founders are still actively running the company and doing and excellent job. They don't worry about quarterly earnings but long term earnings.
It defines the market and sets the consumer standards, world wide.
Worst sp500 stock in May, why was this still on the rec list
At <40, WFM is trading at about 13-14x organic FCF (excluding expansion CAPEX). Although competition is getting more intense, this is a company with a great brand and footprint that has a big ambition and expansion plans. At this price, there is much more upside than downside.
Items that once could be found only at WFM increasingly are showing up in "mainstream" supermarkets. The differentiation that used to justify WFM's lofty prices (and stock price) is eroding.
Great company with a great product, great opportunity on the pullback
