Recommendation

Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc.

Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc. (SFM) is an NYSE stock which received neutral to negative ratings from most researchers and neutral to positive ratings from most analysts. It was a "Market Grader" pick based upon possibly overlooked fundamentals. The wholesale food industry group is a rather strong performer of late, but grocery stores in general have been struggling with profit margins. The more "healthy" farm produce type stores like say, Whole Foods Markets which was recently acquired, are in general targets for acqusition in an overall industry consolidation and merger mode affecting many supermarket chains. This Phoenix-based entity serves mainly the Southern and Southwestern parts of the U.S.

Stock charts look somewhat tepid to weak lately. Company guidance and PR releases are optimistic. The stock has range trading potential and as currently in the low portion of its recent trading range. We think the stock is imminently tradeable with low risk on pullbacks.

Supermarkets have been working on "home delivery" services but these have been problematic, and in particular with Sprouts' attempts. It attempted rather unsuccessfully to partner with Amazon.Com, which is expert in delivery services.

There have been varying stock recommendations regarding healthy food store chains. Researchers and analysts viewed Whole Foods and Weis Markets reather differently from Sprouts, although we are not exactly sure why. Amazon actually now owns Whole Foods stores.

Channeling Potential

 
The summary below includes a value for `Degree,' which refers on a
scale of 1 to 10 the range of a channel in the period under consi-
deration compared to the total range of price movement. It also looks
for the last closing price to be within the channel, otherwise zeroed.
The `Index' is the `Degree' weighted for volatility.  Generally, the
the higher the index, the more suitable is the stock for trading as
a `rolling stock' between channel high and low points.

"Neurostock" can only track long trades. Therefore its performance, as tracked by itself on stocks which are consistently falling, may not appear as good as it could if each "sell" signal were a "short sale."
