12:22 EDTAMZN, TGT, KR, WFM, SWY, SVU, TFM, FWMAnalyst sees groceries as 'massive' opportunity for Amazon
Amazon.com's (AMZN) grocery initiative, Amazon Fresh, could spark a new, long-term growth spurt for the company, research firm PiperJaffray wrote in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: According to the USDA, Americans spent $677B on groceries in 2012, Piper analyst Gene Munster wrote. As a result, Fresh will be a "massive" opportunity for Amazon.com, the analyst stated. Fresh also provides Amazon.com with an indirect opportunity, Munster believes. Specifically, the initiative could cause users to spend more time on the website, ultimately resulting in higher sales for Amazon, the analyst believes. Target (TGT) used a similar strategy beginning in 2009, as it added grocery sections to its smaller stores in an effort to entice consumers to visit the stores more frequently. Noting that Amazon currently offers Fresh in Seattle, Los Angeles and San Francisco, Munster wrote that the service is convenient, fast and efficient, but could improve in the areas of price and selection. He kept a $420 price target and Overweight rating on Amazon.com shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Fresh costs $299 per year. In addition to the grocery service, subscribers receive all the other benefits of Amazon Prime. OTHERS TO WATCH: Supermarkets that could be affected by the launch of Fresh include Whole Foods (WFM), Safeway (SWY), Supervalu (SVU), Kroeger (KR), The Fresh Market (TFM), and Fairway Group (FWM). PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Amazon.com rose $6.65, or 1.8%, to $370.50.
