    Kroger (KR) - The super market giant is up more than five percent on an earnings beat. We've said it a hundred times - grocery is the most unforgiving business on the planet.

Thanks to its purchase of Harris Teeter and successful roll-out of in-house organics, Krogers was able to boost its earnings forecast to a range of $3.19 to $3.27 versus prior outlook of $3.14 to $3.25.
