    Kroger downgraded on challenges unrelated to deflation

    Kroger Co. was downgraded Friday to neutral from overweight at J.P. Morgan on concerns that the grocery company is facing challenges beyond deflation. The company's price target was cut to $24 from $34. Analysts' previous overweight rating was based on the belief that most of Kroger's hurdles were deflation-related. However, "unless inflation can start to increase by perhaps 2% or more, the current environment, along with the headwind of wage inflation, likely will eclipse many of inflation's benefits," the note said. Moreover, Kroger is facing strong competition that is "narrowing the gap in many areas," like organics, customer service and data analytics. J.P. Morgan says it's growing less optimistic that Kroger can beat back competitors without price investments. Kroger shares closed Thursday down nearly 19%, and are down 1.5% in Friday premarket trading. The company's shares have fallen nearly 31% for the past year while the S&P 500 index is up 17.7% for the period.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Kroger's stock plunges toward biggest one-day decline since December 1999

    Kroger Co.'s stock plunged 18.8% in active morning trade Thursday to pace NYSE decliners, putting them on course to suffer the biggest one-day selloff this millennium, in the wake of the grocery chain's disappointing profit outlook. Volume spiked to 36.1 million shares, already more than four times the full-day average, and enough to make the stock the third-most active on the major U.S. exchanges. The one-day percentage decline would be the sixth biggest in its history, according to FactSet, and the biggest since it plummeted 24.6% on Dec. 6, 1999. BMO Capital analyst Kelly Bania said that despite the disappointing earnings-per-share and margin guidance, she sees some encouraging signs in that quarter-to-date same-store sales are running positive, and that margins appear on track to improve. The stock has now tumbled 29% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 8.4%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
