10:27 EDTSFM, TFM, WFMWhole Foods started with Outperform rating at Oppenheimer
Research firm Oppenheimer initiated coverage of Whole Foods (WFM) with an Outperform rating in a note to investors last night, saying that the company is best positioned to gain market share in the natural/organics category. WHAT'S NEW: Whole Foods seems to be coping with recent challenges it has faced well, as its comparative sales increased 5.4% last quarter versus the same period a year earlier, Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh stated. Additionally, investors may be underestimating the long-term benefits of the company's downward price adjustments, Parikh stated. The company's stock has dropped about 20% since last October, creating an opportunity for investors, the analyst contended. He expects the stock to "grind higher," and set a $63 price target on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Other supermarkets that specialize in selling organic products include The Fresh Market (TFM) and Spouts Farmers (SFM), both of which Parikh initiated last night with Perform ratings. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Whole Foods climbed 1% to $52.90.
