What are analysts saying about Whole Foods Market stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Whole Foods Market stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Stiff competition, food price deflation, an aggressive promotional environment and waning store traffic are the headwinds with which Whole Foods has been grappling. These have hurt the stock’s performance that has underperformed the industry in the past three months. The company’s first-quarter fiscal 2017 results was the reflection of the same. The top line lagged the estimate for the second consecutive quarter, while the bottom line declined for the third quarter in row. Comps also slid for the sixth straight quarter. Lower-than-expected sales compelled management to trim its forecasts. As a result, the Zacks Consensus Estimate has been witnessing a downtrend. Nevertheless, the company is trying to spur sales through store openings, adoption of digital route and home delivery services. Whole Foods is revamping its pricing strategy, concentrating on value offerings and has launched a new store concept to target millennials." (2/13/2017)

  • Wells Fargo & Company analysts commented, "We are encouraged by WFM’s new strategic direction, and believe ongoing portfolio pruning, slowing square footage growth and a more thoughtful approach to pricing can each drive improved long term results. While share downside is likely limited at 7.4x NTM EV/EBITDA, we believe near term comp results likely remain the primary driver of FY17 share performance. And given heightened industry competition, ongoing deflation and general lack of visibility, we see risk/reward less favorable vs. peers absent signs of improvement." (2/8/2017)
