The trend to organic and high quality food will only grow over time. Whole Foods has captured the imagination of young consumers and the present price represents a good entry point.

The "Healthy Food" demographic has shown an persistent willingness to pay for quality - now whether the "smaller store" concept [which DID NOT Work for others] remains to be seen.

despite the weakness in consumer spending overall, their customer base will pay for their quality and organics have a great profit margin.

Free Cash Flow machine with clean balance sheet leaves a lot of options the table for this company. In addition, it is best in class - Kroger HAS replicated some of the offerings and even put in a 'bar' in our local store but WFM is the cream of the crop with founder management who cultivated the entire healthy eating market. In addition, this is a company with a mission - not a chain trying to replicate a company with a mission. I believe that over long periods of time through up and down economies the best-in-class founder led company with a mission will be successful. As gravy on top I believe the 365 stores, once rolled out, will be much more successful than people are anticipating. There is an unmet need in the second non-metro markets.

At best, WFM might track the broader market. But I wouldn't count on it. While the company has been busy repeatedly shooting itself in the foot, the rest of the grocery market has had time to catch up a bit on organic offerings. Granted, the Whole Foods whole-store experience is something to be proud of. But I don't believe that's enough to attract a whole new population of WFM shoppers.

Ok, I'll be honest, I don't have a lot of insight to offer here. All I know is that the Motley Fool is excellent at picking winners. When the Fool is this bullish for this long on a certain stock, it makes sense to me to trust they know what they're talking about. I'm in for the long haul

Trading at the same PE ratio as Kroger, but with a better dividend yield and more growth potential. Overreaction by the market of. Few cents miss on earnings and a miss on revenue.

The organic foods market is growing just by the number of old line food providers entering the race. Entering an old line food market is like going back in time compared to WFM. The concept and organization of the each WFM store, and I have visited many, creates a wonderful balance and the smells are uplifting. In the manufacturing world we call that "organizing for production"! In most old line food stores you enter at the front and walk past several rows of checkout counters. At WFM stores you enter the fresh produce section usually passing by fresh flowers and planting arrangements. Immediately you have the feeling as though walking through a garden and picking fresh produce from the vine. Moving through each store there are rows of organic products compared to most old line stores where the organic items are in a small section or sparsely distributed throughout the store. I suspect most people like me would prefer to pay a bit more for the quality of produce and other items. The markets also provide fresh cooked items and salads for eat in or take out. The other day at WFM the lines at check out, located away from the entrance, were filled with people buying lunch. For working people who eat lunch out each day this would suggest the food is appealing and priced reasonable. I like the WFM business model and will continue to watch, wait for Wall Street to go crazy as they are now and create more buying opportunity. When WFM has reached the 1200 stores they project many of us purchasing stocks today will be laughing all the way to the bank!

Rumors of Whole Foods demise have been greatly exaggerated. I think it grows at 10-15% over the long term, beating the market.

They're not going to grow at the ridiculous rate everyone expected before, but Whole Foods is still a solid business.

Solid brand name. Growth locked in and paid for. The price and sales are down based on a blown out of proportion scandal. Buying opportunity.

- Collaboration with Apple pay
- Comps grew 5%
- Store count grew 371 to 417
- New concept for Millennials

However, same store sales have slowed.

Personal calculation of intrinsic value around $87.98.

Whole Foods is going through some difficult times there is still a huge potential to grow and with a nation who is moving to a healthier style of eating and willingness to pay a premium for good food I think Whole Foods is poised to be the leader in this grocery space for a while to come.

This is a speculative pick but I am comfortable with it.
