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

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

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "A dominant position among the nation’s largest grocery retailers enables Kroger to sustain sales growth, expand store base and boost market share. This is well reflected from the stock’s performance in the past six months, when it outperformed the Zacks Categorized industry. We believe there remain enormous opportunities to augment identical supermarket sales, alleviate gross margin pressure and improve operating margin. In our view, Kroger’s long term earnings per share growth rate target of 8% to 11% seem achievable. However, stiff competition, deflationary environment and cautious consumer spending are making things tough for Kroger. The company succumbed to a negative earnings surprise in the third quarter, following an earnings beat in the preceding two quarters of fiscal 2016. The tough operating environment compelled management to narrow its fiscal 2016 earnings projection and provide a bleak outlook for fiscal 2017." (2/20/2017)

  • Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "Today, we published a detailed note on recent industry volume weakness and the underappreciated impact of reduced trade spending on food retail. We highlighted KR as most exposed to this issue, and remain concerned about the company's ability to meet consensus estimates in the near term. That being said, we raised our target price to $33 from $29. While upside to the stock seems limited by earnings risk, visibility on material downside is also low given the backdrop of easing deflation and the company's positive leverage to tax reform. We remain Neutral on the name." (1/19/2017)
