    Guess Who's Buying Kroger?

    It hasn't been an easy year for the stock, down more than 30% since the start of 2017, as investors fret about Amazon's (AMZN) entry into the grocery business. Today, Wells Fargo's Edward J. Kelly and his team reiterated an Outperform rating and $26 price target on Kroger, arguing that the market is overlooking an important catalyst--the fact that Kroger is improving its free cash flow profile (an issue investors have had with the company in the past) that the company could use to buy back shares in the future.

    Online groceries are a hard sell, even to avid internet shoppers - poll

    LOS ANGELES/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Most U.S. shoppers are fiercely loyal to local food stores, calling them better than online options, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll that raises questions about how much Amazon.com's $13.7 billion purchase of Whole Foods will shake up the supermarket business. Shares in Kroger Co, the largest U.S. supermarket operator, have tumbled 40 percent from this year's highs on worries that the newly merged company will be quick to siphon business from traditional food sellers. Seventy-five percent of online shoppers said they rarely or never buy groceries online, according to the survey of nearly 8,600 adults from Aug. 12 to Sept. 1. Even among frequent online shoppers who make internet purchases at least weekly, almost 60 percent said they never buy groceries online or do so just a few times a year, according to the poll.

    Grocers Imagine the Store of the Future

    Food retailers are racing to leverage one of the most important weapons in their battle to keep people coming to grocery stores: data. “Data is the new battleground,” says Stuart Aitken, chief executive of 84.51˚, Kroger Co.’s data-analytics unit, whose name derives from the longitude of the division’s Cincinnati headquarters and because its 750 employees do so-called longitudinal studies, researching habits of customers over long periods. Working from a small host of research facilities beyond the sleek downtown headquarters and a lab tucked away in a suburban strip mall, Kroger’s app developers and data scientists are mining consumer information to devise the grocery store of the future.
