Grocery store stocks off to sluggish start

|By:, SA News Editor

Shares of Whole Foods Market (WFM -4%) are down sharply in early trading as grocery stocks start the week off poorly.

The move appears related in part to worries of lower store traffic and higher logistical costs for grocery store operators due to the recent winter storms in the U.S.

Decliners: RNDY -2.4%, VLGEA -1.4%, SFM -1.1%, SWY -0.7%, FWM -2.5%, KR -0.4%, SVU -4.2%.
