Top 10 Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ:WFM) has had a bad time on the market over the past couple of months, losing over 16% of its value on the back of a weak financial performance in its last reported quarter. But, in my opinion, the recent drop in Whole Foods’ shares is an opportunity to buy more of the stock since there are tangible improvements being witnessed across Whole Foods’ operations as discussed in this article. Let’s take a look.

Sales building initiatives are delivering results

Whole Foods Market’s focus on improving its sales is delivering results, slowly but steadily. For instance, its comparable store sales dropped 2.6% last quarter as compared to a decline of 3% in the preceding quarter. More importantly, Whole Foods is witnessing an improvement in its comparable store sales this quarter as well, as the rate of decline of its comp sales has gone down to 2.4% in the first three weeks of the 12-week fourth quarter.

In addition, the company expects square footage growth of 7% in 2016 and approximately 6% in 2017, driven by the addition of new stores to its portfolio that continue to witness positive comp sales growth. For instance, last quarter, Whole Foods opened 12 new stores that include its first 365 Store. The company has opened one 365 and two Whole Foods Market stores in the ongoing quarter, and it plans to open two additional stores, including one 365 and two Whole Foods Market stores.

    But times have changed, the virtual-currency market has matured a bit, and institutional investors have had a means to bet on the crypto market in a more traditional sense over the past couple of months. By this, I mean that both the CME Groupand CBOE Global Markets (NASDAQ:CBOE) have offered bitcoin futures on their trading platforms since December, providing a more traditional avenue for Wall Street to place its bets.
