With a PE of 12, a yield of 2% and with earnings projected to rise 10% in the next two quarters and 9% annually in the next five years, Kroger anywhere below 24 seems like a pretty good deal. Below 22, it's a downright steal.
Absolutely disagree with you on your favorite BUY price. Waaaay to high at this point unless you care to go long, long and longer. $22 a good buy...no sir! Good luck on that one and it will take a lot of LUCK
