    Macro-Headwinds Risk Ruining the Recipe for Blue Apron Stock

    For meal-delivery service Blue Apron (NYSE:APRN), I'm going to loosen my usual uptight writing style and address this matter frankly: I have a love-hate relationship with APRN stock.For starters, you'd expect the underlying company to do well in this environment. Indeed, I'd argue that in this app-crazy world we're living in, you'd expect Blue Apron stock to skyrocket. In my opinion, the company combines the best of technology and tradition. It gives you the convenience of meal deliveries, while encouraging the family dinner custom.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsFurthermore, millennials love eating out. In my last write-up about Blue Apron stock, I questioned management's previous focus on targeting retirees. And it's not just an age thing. As I pointed out, millennials "have different expectations and desires."A prime example is the car culture. In every other generation, getting a car was a rite of passage. With millennials and the younger Generation Z, it's just not as important. Moreover, there's a reason for this trend. Companies like Uber Technologies (NYSE:UBER) and Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT) are maximizing the potential of the on-demand sharing economy. * 10 Stocks Under $5 to Buy for Fall Logically, this dynamic should greatly benefit APRN stock. Millennials eschew cars but love wining and dining. Plus, they're big on delivery services. These points bolster the "love" part of my relationship with Blue Apron stock.So, what's the "hate" part? Just open up a chart of the Blue Apron stock price and you'll quickly see for yourself. On a year-to-date basis, shares have lost nearly 52% of their market value. And with the panicked situation we have in the markets, this service company just doesn't have the legs to compete.By way of comparison, another millennial food favorite -- Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG) -- has seen its shares skyrocket almost 90% in the same period. The Invesco Dynamic Food & Beverage ETF (NYSEArca:PBJ) has added almost 19% in 2019. CMG is the 10th-largest holding in the exchange-traded fund's 31 stock portfolio. APRN has yet to attract ETF interest. Bad Timing May Hurt Blue Apron StockAlthough APRN stock levers some fundamental advantages regarding consumer demographics and behaviors, their biggest problem is converting those advantages. This mismatch was on fully display for their second-quarter earnings results.On paper, it was a mixed report. Per-share profitability for Blue Apron stock came in at a loss of 59 cents. This was far better than consensus estimates calling for an earnings per share loss of $1.08.However, Q2 was really a devastating blow for the company. That's because revenue delivered badly missed the consensus target by more than 14%, at $119.2 million. Furthermore, the year-ago sales haul was $179.6 million. Unsurprisingly, management reported steep subscriber losses.However, what is surprising is that APRN stock took the bad news quite well. It jumped after the disclosure, although it has since declined. Still, after such poor results, APRN is "only" down about 12% since the Q2 disclosure.Under normal circumstances, that might give contrarians some confidence in Blue Apron stock. Because this is an incredibly volatile name, a 12% loss isn't too bad, relatively speaking.On another angle, the fact that millennials love the on-demand sharing economy suggests that this contrarian play is rational. And I'll be blunt: it would get me excited, too.However, we have one little problem. I just don't like the volatility that we saw in the broader markets. Most of that came about because of U.S.-China trade war tensions, which of course is a major worry. But I'm a bit more concerned about the tension between President Trump and the Federal Reserve. * 10 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for the Rest of 2019 and Beyond Of course, Trump wants the Fed to do more. But I don't think the Fed can do anything. That signals to me that we're really headed toward a recession. And a recession does zero good for Blue Apron stock. A Very Limited Trading OpportunityBut with everything that I just said, it's not all bad news for APRN stock. As I discussed in my last article, Blue Apron brought in Linda Findley Kozlowski to head the company. Previously, Kozlowski was the COO of Etsy (NASDAQ:ETSY), another millennial and Gen Z fave.We have two takeaways here. First, Kozlowski knows e-commerce. She's also adept at engaging millennials, which is crucial for Blue Apron stock. And to top it off, she's proven capable of taking seemingly irrelevant markets -- Etsy specializes in homemade arts and crafts -- to the forefront.This should be a big advantage to Blue Apron. As far as I know, eating is a necessity. And cutting the time to prepare it is itself worth a premium.Perhaps this is the reason why Blue Apron stock apparently found a bottom in late June of this year. But as I mentioned above, we have macro-headwinds that can quickly sour consumer sentiment. Therefore, if you're going to gamble, do so in a narrowly defined period.For everyone else, it's time to shutter this investment. APRN badly missed both revenue and subscriber targets, which represent the lifeblood of a delivery-service company. And even if they didn't miss, we have a potential fiscal tsunami about to crash down on us.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Think Amazon Will Save Rite Aid Stock? Think Again.

    If you're thinking of shopping for Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD) stock on its much-hyped, package pick-up collaboration with Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), be prepared to buy some Tylenol or Pepto Bismol for home delivery at the same time. Let me explain.Source: Shutterstock Chipotle (NYSE:CMG), Equifax (NYSE:EFX) or Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) -- each brand has bounced back in recent years from high profile wrongdoings. The thing is, scandals can be sorted out and time helps in healing those past wounds. Too bad, that's not the problem with RAD stock.Rite Aid's problem is the same one many once-great brick-and-mortar shops are going through or have bowed to already. More and more buying is transacted online with those goods being dropped straight to your doorstep. And chances are, Amazon has been a key player in this bearish market dynamic, even for a storefront like RAD stock.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSure, Amazon has backed away from entering the prescription business. But Amazon already sells a line of over-the-counter private-label medicines. Its Basic Care line offers a range of products from ibuprofen to allergy medicine. Amazon is also pursuing the medical community to purchase common and disposable items from rubber gloves, syringes to gauze from its Amazon Business site. And that's certainly at the expense of RAD stock.RAD stock has another big problem too. Rite Aid isn't a store known to attract foot traffic from the all-important millennial demographic. Sorry … Rite Aid just isn't "cool." And sadly, even the population Rite Aid has captured is getting older and less likely to be hopping in the car or walking to Rite Aid to pick up stockings, Certs and a prescription. * 10 Real Estate Investments to Ride Out the Current Storm But before I pronounce RAD stock as being D.O.A., could Amazon be both a villain and savior for RAD stock? There are investors who believe the new Amazon Counter pick-up option for Amazon purchases at Rite Aid stores could be a prescription for success.The bull case rests on the hypothesis that influential millennials flush with cash, who otherwise wouldn't be caught stepping foot in a Rite Aid store, will now be waiting in line by the dozens and invariably be making additional impulse purchases from Rite Aid before exiting. RAD Stock Monthly ChartOn the surface, the deal sounds kind of interesting. But don't hold your breath on RAD stock. Most Amazon packages aren't going to be dropped off at Rite Aid. And for those few packages that aren't received at one's doorstep, office or neighbor's house, consumers have a choice of where they want to pick the delivery up from. And guess what? That's probably bad news for Rite Aid's service.The fact is for those few boxes, packages and envelopes which don't go to the doorstep, there's already options for picking up merchandise. Consumers have a choice of Amazon Lockers at various convenience stores and even standalone Amazon storefronts to pick up items from. Further, with the partnership just underway and starting with 100 Rite Aid stores but promising 1,500 by year end, it's still going to be a tough proposition to get Millennials, let alone anyone else that normally wouldn't be in a Rite Aid already, into a Rite Aid store and make an actual difference in RAD stock's bottom line. * 7 Stocks the Insiders Are Buying on Sale Think about this as well, what's to stop Amazon from opening up its Counter distribution network into other retailers and hindering Rite Aid's chances even more? And finally, let's be real … given today's existing and more discreet options where communication is minimized and hassle free from checkout lines, the choices for millennials to pick up packages were already in place before Rite Aid's Amazon Counter.So, before you consider investing in Rite Aid stock, take a look at the stock chart and note that while the ginormous bottoming pattern certainly holds the allure of something special, you need to be smart. Think long and hard about today's message, the obvious, existing problems the company faces and RAD's nearly 30% in short interest as fair warning.Disclosure: Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in any securities mentioned in this article.
