What are Wall Street analysts saying about Kroger stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kroger stock:
  • 1. 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." (9/11/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Although shares of Kroger lagged the industry in the past three months, it is likely to witness an above average performance in the near term. Kroger is introducing digital coupons; order online pick up in store and smart shopping lists. The “Restock Kroger” program is also gaining traction. Given this scenario, the Ocado deal along with the buyout of Home Chef and using of Nuro’s self-driven car for grocery delivery services are good moves. Kroger also remains committed to improve identical supermarket sales and margins. However, the company’s fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 results, wherein the bottom line not only missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate but also declined year over yearAlthough, total sales came ahead of the consensus mark, it fell year over year. Management also provided muted earnings view for fiscal 2019." (5/31/2019)
