Investopedia: SuperValu May Be Too Far Gone To Save
Food retailing has never been an easy business, particularly since large discounters like Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Target (NYSE:TGT)
got into the game in a big way. While there has been room for companies
with differentiated models (often built around premium products or
intense merchandising skill), SuperValu (NYSE:SVU)
has been struggling to differentiate itself and compete effectively in
the mainline supermarket space. With this major earnings disappointment
in hand, it's worth asking if even deep-value turnaround investors ought to bother with this name.
