    Kroger Health Pharmacies in Idaho and Michigan Add Strep Throat and Flu Testing to Service Offerings

    Kroger Health pharmacies in Idaho and Michigan are expanding their service offerings. Effective immediately, patients can see a pharmacist at a Kroger Health pharmacy for rapid strep throat and flu testing. Patients can now stop by the pharmacy – no appointment necessary – where a pharmacist will evaluate symptoms of flu-like illness or sore-throat, medical history, and conduct an examination. As part of this service, the pharmacist may perform a nasal swab or throat swab collection for a rapid diagnostic test screening for influenza or Streptococcus bacteria (strep throat). If indicated, pharmacists can also prescribe and supply the appropriate treatment during that same visit, helping decrease the length, severity, and spread of illness.

    Cerberus-owned Albertsons preparing for an IPO amid improved performance and strong stock market: WSJ

    Albertsons Cos. is preparing for an initial public offering, which could value the grocery giant at around $19 billion, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. Albertsons is owned by private-equity firm Cerberus Capital Management. The report, which cites people described as familiar with the matter, says Albertsons has been updating IPO documents that had been confidentially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The report said Albertsons has substantially reduced debt since it last filed IPO papers back in 2015, and Cerberus is resurrecting IPO discussions in an effort to cash in on the grocer's improved performance and a strong stock market. The IPO preparation comes as the shares of fellow grocery giant Kroger Co. have rallied 17.4% over the past three months, while the Renaissance IPO ETF has climbed 14.7% and the S&P 500 has gained 10.4%.

    Beyond Meat's stock soars again, heads for 30% rally in 3 days

    Shares of Beyond Meat Inc. powered up 10% in midday trading Monday toward a three-month high, to extend last week's big rally as some industry experts suggested plant-based meats are now more than just a novelty option for consumers. The stock has now run up 30% amid a three-day win streak, and has soared 42% in a week. The rally came despite new product announcements from competitors, as Impossible Foods said it was adding pork and sausage to its plant-based meat lineup, and Kroger Co. announced that launch of "Emerge: Plant Based Fresh Meats." Data and analytics provider Technomic said the announcements indicated that plant-based meat alternatives have "absolutely gone mainstream" and are gaining more acceptance among consumers. The stock, which went public in May, has still lost 19% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has gained 10%.
