2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The Kroger Co operates grocery stores. Its coverage includes retail food and drug stores, multi-department stores, jewelry stores and convenience stores.

Kroger is one of the largest retailers in the U.S. As of the end of fiscal 2016, the company operated 2,796 supermarkets, 784 convenience stores, and 319 jewelry stores in 35 states. In addition to its namesake banner, Kroger operates several other chains, including Ralphs, Fred Meyer, King Soopers, Fry's, Harris Teeter, and Food 4 Less. Building out its established footprint, Kroger acquired Roundy's at the end of fiscal 2015, which afforded it a more meaningful foray into the Chicago market.

Guru Investment Theses on The Kroger Co

Jeff Auxier Comments on Kroger - Aug 03, 2017

Kroger (NYSE:KR) is the leading grocer in the US. The price of groceries has declined for 18 consecutive months which represents one of the longest declines in over 50 years. Egg prices are down over 60% in the past three years. Eating at home is a tremendous bargain compared to eating out. New competitors like Amazon/Whole Foods and foreign entrants Aldi and Lidl have added to the negative sentiment. Kroger has competed very well with Walmart for several years now. Kroger is a fierce competitor and after visiting several stores in three states we are convinced they offer compelling food value and strong execution. At 11 times depressed earnings it looks too cheap.



From Jeff Auxier (Trades, Portfolio)'s second-quarter 2017 shareholder letter.
