Major Divergences in the Grocery Stores Industry

Grocery stores are the top trending industry on StockTwits today after Supervalue cut its dividend and reported much lower than expected earnings. Apparently not all grocery stocks are operated equally. While Supervalue ($SVU) and Safeway ($SWY) are struggling near 52-week low, giant discount retailers like Walmart ($WMT) and Target ($TGT), and higher-end organic food retailers like Whole Foods ($WFM) are thriving and trading near multi-year highs. One more sign of the bifurcation in the U.S. consumer society.
