    Should You Buy Kroger Stock After Its No-Good, Terrible Month?

    Shares of Kroger (NYSE:KR) fell 10% in early trade Sept. 13 after it released earnings that beat estimates on the bottom line but came up short on the top. Kroger said it earned $797 million, 62 cents per share fully diluted, on sales of $27.869 billion, and declared a 14 cent per share dividend. The fall may have been inevitable considering the rise in Kroger stock since March when it dropped to as low as $23 per share.
