What are Wall Street analysts saying about Supervalu stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Supervalu stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "SUPERVALU, which is set to be acquired by United Natural, has been witnessing softness in its retail segment, due to stiff competition. During first-quarter fiscal 2019, net sales in this unit dropped due to lost sales from closed stores. Well, the company has been undertaking endeavors to shut retail stores and completed the sale of its Farm Fresh banner during the first quarter. SUPERVALU is also on track to sell Shop ‘n Save and Shop ‘n Save East retail businesses. To top this, the company has been witnessing year-over-year declines in gross margin for a while, mainly due to unfavorable business mix. Nonetheless, the company’s Wholesale business has been quite stellar, which depicted a surge of 49% in the first quarter, driven by contributions from Unified Grocers and AG Florida. Further, the company focuses on enhancing financial strength and recently closed the sale of seven distribution centers." (10/4/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We’ve had a chance to review Supervalu’s recent letter to shareholders and its investor presentation in response to the Blackwells’ proposal. We think investors will be more likely to side with mgt. in the proxy fight if Supervalu can build on its recent progress and sustain that momentum in the upcoming results. On top of the need to stay on track relative to FY19 guidance, mgt. faces additional challenges to rapidly transform the business. Following the positive shift in sentiment as a result of the 4Q18 earnings release, mgt. now needs to identify more opportunities to optimize the distribution network, make additional progress with retail divestitures, and further de-lever the balance sheet. We see Shoppers Food as the next logical candidate for a retail exit." (7/25/2018)
