08:05 EDTKRRoundy's buyout shows Fresh Market undervalued, sayst Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Mark Wiltamuth says Kroger's (KR) acquisition of Roundy's (RNDY) reaffirms his view that The Fresh Market (TFM) is undervalued. Fresh Market shares trade at 6 times EV/EBITDA, below the 6.9 times EV/EBITDA paid by Kroger for Roundy's, and the company has a "superior" margin, free cash flow and growth profile, Wiltamuth tells investors in a research note. With a new CEO exploring strategic options, either a "buyout or a new turnaround effort are brewing" for Fresh Market, the analyst contends. He keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $29 price target.
