Organic Aisle Has Become a Battlefield
Posted on June 2 at 2:01 p.m. EDT
People are itching to buy shares of Whole Foods (WFM) now that its stock has a $41 price tag, an 18% off sale for the year. They are asking about Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM), the boutique version of Whole Foods with its small store and homey feel, that's down 10%.
Those who like to shop at some of the prettiest Fresh Market (TFM) stores and they can be dazzlers, are intrigued by scooping some of that one up, as it is now down 21% for the year.
And for all bottom-fishers in the natural and organic space, may I direct your attention to what Target (TGT) CEO Brian Cornell emphasized last night on CNBC's "Mad Money," notably that the company wants to get bigger and bigger into "wellness." And he said he is just getting started in the expansion of the food aisle to include more natural and organic foods.
