What are Wall Street analysts saying about United Natural Foods stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about United Natural Foods stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "United Natural’s shares have declined in the past three months. We note that the company’s gross margin performance has been dismal for a while. During second-quarter fiscal 2019, gross margin was weighed by adverse shift in consumer mix and lower gross profit rate at SUPERVALU. Moreover, challenges across the company’s distribution centers have been a drag on performance.  Such headwinds have also led to enhanced transportation, labor and shrink costs. However, the company is witnessing growth across sales channels, supported by strong brands, efficient strategies and solid consumer demand. Speaking of strategies, the buyout of SUPERVALU is contributing significantly to the top line.  We note that management is on track with the integration of legacy SUPERVALU, which is expected to generate synergies worth more than $185 million in the fourth year of the deal." (5/21/2019)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We’ve lowered our FY19 EBITDA est. from $598 million to $527 million. The latest operational challenges are specific to several acquired facilities in the legacy Supervalu distribution network. There were some positives in 2Q including $200 million of new business and $165 million in debt reduction. Still, the rapid succession of the recent guidance cuts confirms many of our initial concerns about Supervalu, including the fact that UNFI has acquired a business that was itself undergoing major transitional issues following several recent acquisitions with unfinished integration work."
