[$$] Kraft Heinz Shares Are Indigestible, for Now

Kraft Heinz (KHC) is exposed to the dead zone, with products such as Heinz Ketchup, Kraft macaroni and cheese, Kool-Aid, Jell-O, Capri Sun drinks, Maxwell House coffee, and Planters nuts. The company is also vulnerable to increasing private-label competition for its chilled products, including Kraft cheese and Oscar Mayer cold cuts. Talk of consolidation in the food business has put renewed attention on Kraft Heinz, seen as the company most likely to gobble up rivals.
