    Costco Stock Rises ~23% despite Competitive Headwinds

    With the expansion of Amazon (AMZN) in the grocery space last year through its Whole Foods acquisition and consumers shifting more and more toward online shopping, many projected that Costco (COST) was likely to suffer in 2018, as it lagged both Walmart (WMT) and Target (TGT) in terms of digital initiatives. Costco’s traffic has risen at a stellar rate so far this year, and the company has outperformed its peers with its industry-leading comps growth. In the past six quarters, Costco’s top line has grown at an average rate of 10.8%, while its EPS have marked robust growth.

    Kroger and Ocado to build first robotic warehouse in Cincinnati

    Kroger, the largest U.S. supermarket operator, is battling Walmart Inc and Amazon.com Inc in the small, but fast-growing online segment that accounts for anywhere from 1 percent to 4 percent of the $800 billion U.S. grocery market. In May, Kroger paid roughly $248 million for a minority stake in Ocado, an online grocer, and struck an exclusive deal for the U.S. market. Kroger will spend $55 million on the partners' first project - a 335,000-square-foot facility in Monroe, Ohio, a suburb north of Cincinnati.
