What are analysts saying about SuperValu stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about SuperValu stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "SUPERVALU shares have underperformed in the past three months in comparison to the industry. While the company’s first quarter fiscal 2018 earnings lagged the Zacks Consensus Estimate, sales beat the same. Further, both earnings and revenues increased year-over-year during the quarter, which signals that the company’s efforts to turnaround and improve its businesses is bearing fruits. SUPERVALU is also trying to develop wholesale operations, primarily through adding new customers, retaining and developing business with existing customers and acquisitions. The acquisition of Unified Grocers is expected to boost Supervalu’s wholesale business and complement its customer base. However, sluggish retail business, tough competitive pressure and depleting footfalls at the supermarkets continues to remain headwinds. Estimates are also declining since past 7 days." (8/9/2017)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We can support a price target of $5.50 excluding any longer-term synergy benefits from Unified. Any sale/leaseback transaction in Wholesale or accretive M&A activity in the Retail segment would result in further upside to our $5.50 price target." (7/26/2017)
