    A trend to watch: The grocery market in the U.K. is becoming increasingly polarized as both high-end specialty grocers and discounters pick up market share while national grocery store chains suffer. Is the same pattern unfolding in the U.S.? The Q1 read is that Wal-Mart (WMT) continues to gobble up grocery market share at the expense of Kroger (KR), Supervalu (SVU) and Safeway (SWY) while natural/organic chains (WFM, TFM, NGVC) remain a growth story.

    More on retail sales: Building material and garden equipment sales (HD, LOW) were again, up 1.5% M/M and 4.1% Y/Y, while department store sales (SHLD, KSS, M, JWN, JCP) trailed expectations.

    Online grocery sales increased 8% last year as the industry gains acceptance in metropolitan areas and is pegged to see sales grow to as much as $9.4B by 2017. The trend is far from favorable for brick-and-mortar grocery stores (KR, SVU, SWY) still reeling from increased competition from dollar stores and Wal-Mart. What to watch: As delivery services such as Peapod and Fresh Direct expand, will Whole Foods Market (WFM) stand pat?

    Shares of Supervalu (SVU +8.2%) spike higher after sitting in negative territory. On the firm's earnings call (webcast), there was some indication from execs that the company has significant room to grow profits by focusing more on perishables as it become a "more conventional" operator.

    Supervalu (SVU +13%) reverses early losses after closing the Cerberus-led deal to reduce its supermarket portfolio and strengthen its balance sheet. Cantor Fitzgerald notes proceeds from share issue will be used for debt reduction, offsetting any significant dilution, and cheers the "end of a long period of value destruction."
