Grocery stocks followed the broader market down Monday despite an uptick in consumer spending for January.

According to the Commerce Department,

consumer spending

rose 0.6% in January after falling for a record six straight months, driven by a 1.3% rise in purchases of nondurable goods led by greater spending on food.
