What are Wall Street analysts saying about Supervalu stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Supervalu stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "SUPERVALU is battling persistent softness in its retail segment, stemming from stiff competition and intense promotions. As a result, the company has been resorting to retail store closures. Recently, the company unveiled plans to shutter its Shop ‘n Save and Shop ‘n Save East retail businesses, concurrent to its fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 earnings announcement. Well, SUPERVALU continued to battle the aforementioned retail woes during the quarter where its dismal gross margin trend lingered — thanks to unfavorable mix. These hurdles may continue to weigh on SUPERVALU's stock. Nonetheless, the company continued to witness steady growth in its wholesale business, which posted sales growth of a solid 60% during the quarter. This surge was largely backed by buyouts of AG Florida and Unified Grocers. Further, the company is on-track to strengthen its wholesale operations." (6/19/2018)
