13:27 EDTSFM, UNFI, WFMSprouts Farmers Markets rises after analyst upgrades shares
Shares of organic food supermarket chain Sprouts Farmers Markets (SFM) are climbing after Credit Suisse upgraded the stock, saying that its recent decline has created a buying opportunity. WHAT'S NEW: The recent decline in Sprouts stock seems to have created a more attractive entry point, wrote Credit Suisse in a note to investors earlier today. Although the specialty food supermarket space is poised to become more competitive, Spouts' focus on providing affordable produce makes it "disruptive," Credit Suisse contended. Since it's difficult to change consumers' perception about food prices, other companies will have difficulty competing with Sprouts over the longer term, the firm believes. Additionally, Credit Suisse wrote that Sprouts' earnings outlook is strong, while it can open many more stores and deliver high growth. The firm raised its rating on the shares to Outperform from Neutral and increased its price target on the stock to $34 from $31. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Sprouts climbed 4% to $30. Another organic food supermarket chain, Whole Foods (WFM), gained 3.5% to $42.50. Meanwhile, United Natural Foods (UNFI), which operates distribution centers and distributes organic foods, rose 2% to $64
