Guru Investment Theses on United Natural Foods Inc

Baron Funds Comments on United Natural Food Inc. - Nov 10, 2015

Shares of United Natural Food Inc. (NASDAQ:UNFI), the leader in healthy foods distribution to North American supermarkets, declined during the third quarter due to a contract loss representing 5% of sales that occurred after a change in ownership with a specific customer. We view United Natural’s leading scale, national coverage and high service levels as key competitive advantages. It has a strong supply chain infrastructure in the industry, and we think it is well positioned for share gains over the next several years. (Matthew Weiss)

Baron Funds Comments on United Natural Foods Inc. - Aug 19, 2015

United Natural Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ:UNFI), the leading distributor of natural, organic and specialty products, reported decelerating sales growth trends. Many players in the sector reported similar trends and all the stocks declined over concerns that growth has crested. We believe that we are still in the early phase of growth in the natural and organic foods industry and the near-term issues have to do with competition and market share. We see great growth prospects for the company’s Tony’s acquisition, which puts United into distribution of fresh and perishable foods. It doubles the addressable market opportunity for the company. And so far so good in integrating the product offerings and growing this sector.

Baron Funds Comments on United Natural Foods Inc. - Aug 18, 2015

Shares of United Natural Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ:UNFI), the largest distributor of natural, organic, and specialty products to North American supermarkets, declined in the second quarter on a slight deceleration in sales growth that we believe will prove temporary. The natural and organic food sector is one of the brightest categories within grocery, and United has been the leader in getting these products to market. We are also excited about a recent acquisition that we believe could double the company’s addressable market opportunity in fresh and perishable foods. (Matt Weiss)

Baron Funds Comments on United Natural Foods Inc. - Aug 18, 2015

After reaching an all-time high in the first quarter, shares of United Natural Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ:UNFI) the largest distributor of natural, organic and specialty products to North American supermarkets, declined meaningfully. This occurred after the company’s largest customer, Whole Foods Market, Inc., reported disappointing results, and United also experienced decelerating sales trends. While organic revenue growth slowed from its historically consistent 10% rate to 7% last quarter, United remains the market leader in the distribution of healthier and natural foods, one of the most attractive categories within grocery. We believe a variety of one-time factors contributed to the recent sales slowdown. We remain excited by the opportunity within the company’s core business, as well as the meaningful contribution from Tony’s Fine Foods, a recent acquisition that we believe has the potential to double United’s addressable market by adding fresh and perishable foods to its product offering.

Within Consumer Staples, the outperformance of United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI) the largest distributor of natural and organic products, and The Boston Beer Company, Inc. (SAM), the largest craft brewer in the U.S., added the most value to absolute returns.

United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI), the largest distributor of natural, organic, and specialty products to North American supermarkets, delivered another quarter of strong, better-than-expected results that helped push shares to new highs. Sales were up 24% over 2013, boosted by double-digit organic growth and meaningful contribution from a large, recent acquisition that we believe has the potential to double the company’s addressable market opportunity in gourmet perishable foods.
