High-end grocery stores on watch

  • A cut in guidance from The Fresh Market (TFM) could create a ripple of worry in the sector with the slowdown of the company's store traffic trends standing out.
  • Execs with The Fresh Market noted during the firm's conference call that sales decelerated by 200 bps in the final month of the quarter - partially due to "competitive" activity. (transcript)
  • On watch: Whole Foods Market (WFM) -0.9% premarket, Fairway Group (FWM) -0.8%, Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM).

    You could potentially see the shorts use this opportunity to sell-down the entire sector. I foresee a slaughter in Organic Groceries today and possibly Monday.

    People want good quality food - - To destroy a company just because of one quarter is an insane move for a long term investor - - If you believe in this sector/company let the shorts do their worst and then swoop in to get a bargain basement price for future gains

    If wishes were horses I would have waited until after the ER to buy but still believe that in 2years there will be at least a 25% -30% gain from the current mark
