    A Look at Supervalu’s Stock Performance and Valuations

    Supervalu’s (SVU) stock has failed to please investors for quite some time now. Poor financial performance and growing pessimism for the food retailer after Amazon’s entry into the space have been some of the key reasons behind SVU’s share price decline. It was reported on April 6 that the company is exploring the possibility of a potential sale after facing pressure from activist shareholders, including Blackwells Capital LLC. SVU’s share price soared on the news and closed 9.3% higher on April 6.

    This Walmart Move Tells Amazon Grocery Won’t Be Easy

    Amazon (AMZN) has dominated many aspects of the retail industry, and it’s now looking to dominate the food sector as well. Its $13.7 billion acquisition of Whole Foods last year clearly revealed its interest in growing its scale in the food business, a retail segment that’s largely controlled by traditional retailers such as Walmart (WMT), Costco (COST), Kroger (KR), and Target (TGT). In a move that’s been viewed as designed to tackle Amazon’s growing threat in the grocery sector, Walmart recently named a grocery industry veteran to lead its Jet unit.
