SUPERVALU's Big Shakeup

In today's edition of "Talkin' Stocks," Andrew and Austin look at the shakeup at the top of SUPERVALU. Craig Herkert is out as CEO and Wayne Sales will be filling his shoes. While Herkert had promise as a former Wal-Mart supply-chain guy, he just didn't seem up to the task of righting SUPERVALU's ship. While Wayne Sales' background isn't as closely related, he does have turnaround experience, which could bode well for shareholders. It's hurry up and wait for this company.
