United Natural Foods' (UNFI) quarterly earnings met expectations, but shares fell anyway as it became the latest in its group to take a hit. Consumers are still generally shying away from pricier organics and natural foods in favor of lower-priced items. United Natural's fiscal Q1 EPS rose 15% to 46 cents, as expected. Sales grew 16% to $1.41 bil, edging forecasts. Fresh Market (TFM) on Wed. reported profit that missed, and in early Nov., Whole Foods Market's (WFM) results just met views. United Natural Foods shares fell 0.6% to 51.77.
