The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Ron Gross, James Early, and Joe Magyer. In this segment, the guys discuss the slight drop in Whole Foods' (NAS: WFM) earnings, and why they don't think this was such a big deal for such a strong company. That being said, the guys break down the company's business model, and the division of market share for the grocer industry as a whole. They talk about why it's an industry they just don't find all that appealing.
It's hard to believe that a grocery store could book investors more than 30 times their initial investment, but that's just what Whole Foods has done for those who saw the organic trend coming some 20 years ago. However, it may not be too late to participate in the long-term growth of this organic foods powerhouse. In this brand-new premium report on the company, we walk through the key must-know items for every Whole Foods investor, including the main opportunities and threats facing the company. We're also providing a full year of regular analyst updates to go with it, so make sure to claim your copy today by clicking here.
