What are analysts saying about Kroger Company (The) stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kroger Company (The) stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Stiff competition, volatility in food prices, aggressive promotional environment and waning store traffic are making things tough for Kroger that underperformed the industry in the past three months. This is quite evident from second-quarter fiscal 2017 results, wherein bottom line continues to decline year over year for the fourth straight quarter. On the contrary, top line continues to improve fueled by Customer 1st strategy, digital endeavors and recent buyouts, and also came ahead of the estimate for the fourth successive quarter. The company’s dominant position among grocery retailers enables it to sustain sales growth, expand store base and boost market share. However, higher investments in new services and compelling pricing strategy may hurt margins. Further, a high debt load also remains a concern. Management also reiterated its fiscal 2017 adjusted earnings guidance of $2.00-$2.05 per share down from the prior year." (9/11/2017)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Company analysts commented, "We remain Outperform, however, as we believe KR is taking the difficult, yet necessary steps to preserve market share in an evolving food retail landscape, and see strong long term potential for patient investors.  Taking a page from a successful playbook. KR’s hard reset today took a page from WMT’s playbook (circa 2015 investor day) with investments in price, associate wages and ecommerce (which proved to be the right move relatively quickly). Of the three, pricing was most evident in the quarter, with gross margin down -45bps ex: fuel, M&A, and LIFO compared to -29bps in Q4 (the largest negative Q vs. Q swing in GM since FY12). Based on our checks, we believe price investments in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic have been the primary area of focus, and despite likely incremental spending ahead, we remain optimistic that KR can continue to improve its share position in less competitive markets such as the Midwest. Our revised model now incorporates EBIT margin contraction of -44bps (vs. prior -15bps) owing to -67bps of gross margin (-46bps prior) and -22bps of OpEx leverage (-35bps prior)." (6/12/2017)
  • 3. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "The latest results at Kroger and Albertson's point to a rapidly intensifying competitive environment. We think investors were bracing for the possibility of negative ID's in the latest quarter, but the magnitude of the 0.7% ID sales decline combined with heavy gross margin investment caught us by surprise. While we appreciate that management took the time to break down the quarterly cadence of the FY17 guidance, at first glance the preliminary outlook seems a bit aggressive. We think further guide-downs are likely. When adjusted for the impact of an extra week, the $2.21-$2.25 FY17 EPS guidance implies flat to slightly positive growth off of the non-GAAP base earnings base of $2.11 from FY16. The earnings trajectory heading into FY17 is even weaker than what was reflected in the 4Q16 results. The $0.55-$0.59 EPS guidance range for 1Q17 reflects a decline of 16-22% from last year. Even after accounting for the cost savings from the 1,300 associates who are expected to participate in the voluntary buyout program announced in December, we don't believe the full-year guidance is sufficiently conservative. We've lowered our FY17 EPS estimate to $1.95 (from $2.21) and our price target to $32 (from $35)." (3/3/2017)
  • 4. Argus analysts commented, "We believe that Kroger is differentiating itself by offering continuous innovation in a very volatile retail sector. Kroger has been a leader in using rigorous data analysis to offer personalized promotions, in recognizing the need to offer low and compelling prices, in efficiently managing operations to enable the price reductions that have driven 12 years of market share gains. The company is also a leader in offering digital coupons and providing online ordering." (3/3/2017)
  • 5. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "Following KR's F4Q17 earnings, we tweak our F18E EPS based on lower IDs and incorporate the extra week. Given that KR is now underperforming peers on a same-store sales basis with weakening volumes, perhaps due to competitors running better stores, we are lowering our target P/E multiple to 14-15x and price target to $34 and remain Market Perform-rated. We tweak our F18E EPS to $2.23 ($2.14 ex-extra week) and F19E EPS to $2.32." (3/3/2017)
