10:42 EDTWFMKroger CEO says consumer spending still 'fragile'
Kroger (KR) CEO W. Rodney McMullen says the company will continue to spend on stores. McMullen said it will be "fascinating" to see how Whole Foods (WFM) customers react to its plans for a smaller, lower-cost format. Kroger's CEO says food inflation has been tracking a 1%-2% and the company expects it to continue at that level. McMullen says Kroger looks at "just about anything that is available" in terms of M&A, but doesn't bid on many things. McMullen is speaking on CNBC.

07:46 EDTWFMAmerican Express has $850M revenue opportunity with Plenti, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank estimates the coalition loyalty/rewards program Plenti represents a $750M-$850M annual revenue opportunity for American Express (AXP) over the next 3-5 years. Earnings accretion will take time, but returns on equity are likely "very high," Deutsche says in a research note. The firm believes Plenti is an example of how Amex is leveraging its strengths to mitigate the loss of Costco (COST). It thinks Plenti's next program supplier needs to be a grocery chain, and pegs Whole Foods (WFM) as a good candidate. Deutsche keeps a Buy rating on American Express with a $90 price target.
