What are Wall Street analysts saying about Kroger stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kroger stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Kroger have risen and outpaced the industry in the past six months. The stock got a boost following management’s commentary that the company registered a sharp rise in sales during the month of March due to coronavirus-led demand. Identical supermarket sales without fuel rose 30% in the said month. The company informed that as consumers started stockpiling, demand shot up in the middle of the month but somewhat tapered in the final week as people get accustomed to changes in daily lifestyle. Notably, Kroger has been making prudent investments to bolster omni-channel operations, improve supply chain and increase manpower to ensure swift customer service. Considering recent sales trends, management expects first-quarter fiscal 2020 identical sales excluding fuel and adjusted EPS to fare better than the annual growth rate." (6/2/2020)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We’re in line with consensus for in EPS. Following a tentative deal to avoid a strike in Southern California, Kroger appears to have dodged a major bullet within the past few days. However, the resolution of that contract comes as Kroger is still dealing with ongoing labor issues and the threat of a strike at Southwest Washington. VALUATION – Our price target of $26 PT is unchanged reflects a forward PE multiple of 13x our FY19 EPS estimate which is line with Kroger’s historical average. A target EV/EBITDA level of 6.7x is also in line with historical levels and with Ahold/Delhaize. RISKS – If Kroger needs to respond to incremental competitive threats, industry-wide deflationary (or inflationary) pressures, or if there is a significant contraction in the employment cycle, Kroger’s valuation metrics could be at risk."
