    Albertsons (ACI) swings to a Loss. Stock falls on dismal future guidance. The CEO said sales at stores open at least a year will decline 6% to 7.5% this fiscal year as people are vaccinated and can return to dining out. Also, they have run out of properties to sell off, and lease back, which was used to show paper "profits" before the 1/4th non-voting minority share IPO..

    CEO gets paid $9.44 Million, to Lose $144.2 million in what should have been the best qtr of the year,
    Restaurants were closed, but Grocery stores stayed open. If it weren't for the obvious HFT "Gravy" Algo
    pumping, this 1/4th of a share stock would be trading at what the Federal Judge said it's worth - $12.

    Why are they paying a dividend to the Vulture capital Hedge Fund majority overlords, if they are Losing Money?
    Are they trying to bankrupt the company, like they did to America's oldest gunmaker, Remington Arms, earlier?

    Despite my current Yahoo screen name, I am always looking for the best Pure Earnings stock plays, to the Short or Long side. And so I went Long ACI earlier today, in at $18.91, to hold through her earnings release on Monday.

    Unlike most stocks these days, I think ACI is not overvalued at current levels. Further, I expect a very good earnings release, solid beats on consensus estimates. Company has really nice financials and I think traders underestimate the staying power of the new and bigger spending customers that grocery stores have gotten due to Covid. Humans are creatures of habit. Just because restaurants reopen, does not mean people who have become addicted to their Instapots and microwave meals over the past year, are going to go back to their old ways of dining out.

    ACI could easily go to $20.50+ on Monday in direct response to a strong earnings release.

    After ACI I will go back to Shorting, and PKG looks poised to deliver a very disappointing ER Monday AH, and to sell off big-time on Tuesday. Very likely I will Short PKG after I sell my ACI shares later on Monday.

    Good Luck Folks!

    Earnings release is just 2 minutes away, looking for strong numbers and a significant price pop today to at least $20. Happy to be Long a lot of shares at $18.91 as a Pure Earnings play to the long-side. :-)

    ACI Conference Call starts at 8:30 ET. All it will take are positive comments, articulated clearly and honestly, to push this baby up above $19 here in the pre-market, and even further up through the $19's once we get into the regular session.

    Looking to close out this Long position in the afternoon and immediately go Short on PKG to hold through her earnings release. That one is a SCREAMING Short Sell due to overvaluation and the very weak paper market going forward...

    As an active Pure Earnings trader my philosophy is to ALWAYS take your loss and move on. Gonna sell ACI within the next 40 minutes even as she is slowly trending back up. A 4-5% loss is not nice, but each and every day, with each and every Pure Earnings trade, I give myself the opportunity to achieve a 5, 10, 15, even 20%+ win, just by choosing the right side of the trade. And so there is no reason to hold and wait. Just take the loss and move on.

    In this case, I am moving to a PKG Short Sell, and I think I have an excellent, 75+% opportunity to realize a big win and Cover that Short tomorrow with a potential 5-12% gain. We will see if my boldness pays off. I sure hope so! :-)

    MT NEWSWIRES — 04/27/21----Deutsche Bank Adjusts Albertsons' Price Target to $26 From $24, Maintains Buy Rating or $7 higher from today's stock price.
    MT NEWSWIRES - 8:02 AM ET 4/27/2021. How one analyst upgraded ACI from $24 to $26 and MS and GS
    adjusted ACI price to $20... Shaws and Star Markets are owned by Albertson and they both doing very well
    in the New England. I shop at Shaws as prices are great at the beginning of each week . The food sector has been sold-off lately due to the different opinions from a certain analyst. I believe the Deuche Bank analyst see thing must more clearly than other, and today 's sell off would give us an opportunity to buy ACI and a deeper discount.

    The Staple food sector has turned around this afternoon. All the food stocks were sold off earlier today, have been bought back and many of them are in the GREEN right now. Expect to see ACI bounces back
    to $19.50 near term.

    Albertsons Cos(ACI). has an average rating of outperform and price targets ranging from $20 to $26, according to analysts polled by Capital IQ. Price: 18.32, Change: ...

    Albertsons has swung to a fourth-quarter loss, sending shares down over 9.56% from the earlier peak hit briefly from the artificial "buyback plan" pumping using $300 million taken from the stores' operating cash. Net loss totaled $144.2 million, or -37 cents per share, compared to net income of $67.8 million, or 12 cents per share, last year.

    Goldman Sachs Downgrades Albertsons Stock. It’s About More Than the Reopening.
    They've run out of properties to sell off and lease back to show a false paper profit.
    They could have been paying down their huge amount of debt, but instead decided
    to "buyback" shares just sold for less at IPO, to artificially pump up the 75% of the
    shares still held by the Hedge Fund perpetrators of this obvious Pump and Dump
    stock scheme. ACI = Strong Sell.
