GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
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 maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

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 - Feb 06, 2018

After a rough start to the year, Kroger (NYSE:KR) delivered a net earnings increase of 1.5% vs. an earnings decline of 56% year over year. This improvement was driven by their record-setting Black Friday results for general merchandise and record sales at Fred Meyer. Digital revenue was up 109% from the continued positive response to Kroger’s online-grocery ordering service. Recently the company has been in discussions with Chinese online powerhouse­ Alibaba. We have been very impressed with Kroger’s use of data analytics. With a nationwide shortage of both trucks and drivers, shipping costs are up over 18% this past year. This will pressure margins for the online delivery model. Companies like Kroger with a vast store base should have an advantage. Additionally, 2017 saw some of the biggest price declines in food since 1950. Recently those price fundamentals show signs of improving.

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.

I believe the stock market is in a bubble. And I’m 100% invested. The two aren’t mutually exclusive. And it’s usually counterproductive to try to change someone’s mind about either of those two things. If you don’t believe we’re in a bubble – chances are I’m not going to be able to convince you otherwise. And if you believe the right thing to do when stocks are in a bubble is to go 100% to cash – chances are I won’t be able to convince you to stay in stocks despite your belief that we’re in a bubble. So, what can we do that can make an actual difference in process? What can we do to become better investors right now – without arguing about bubbles, market timing and so forth? Read more...
