Analyst reaction to the Kroger (KR +0.9%) - Harris Teeter (HTSI +0.1%) merger continues to pour in with the general consensus take seeing the combination as a positive. The increased exposure in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast should help Kroger meet or exceed its guidance on synergies while keeping the brands distinct should alleviate concerns from consumers that Harris Teeter stores - perceived as cleaner and more modern - will suffer.

    Why would Harris Teeter suffer? Kroger will pump money into their operation just like they did with the Ralph's merger. It was the Kroger shareholders that suffered then. No dividend for 12 years.
