As the healthy organic food trend continues to grow in the U.S., United Natural Foods seems poised to cash in, with its huge network around the country supplying to chains such as Whole Foods , Kroger , and Safeway . However, after the company released earnings, the stock sold off based on weaker-than-expected guidance.
In this video, Jason Moser of Motley Fool One and David Meier of Motley Fool Million Dollar Portfolio discuss United Natural Foods and the greater health-food trend as a whole and tell investors what they can expect from this company in the next few years.
Although United Natural Foods flies under the radar of many investors, its work as a supplier is very visible in a story most investors are much more familiar with, that of Whole Foods Market. 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.
