News that Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) would buy Whole Foods Market, Inc. (NASDAQ:WFM) sent retail stocks, especially those reliant on selling food, sharply lower on June 9. For the online retailer, adding bricks and mortar assets to its retail channel makes sense strategically for the company. Market participants clearly did not expect the WFM stock acquisition.
National Grid PLC, Target Corp., Advance Auto Parts Inc. and New York Community Bancorp Inc. have declined to their respective 3-year lows
Wal-Mart reportedly is not considering an offer for Whole Foods, dashing hopes for a bidding war vs. Amazon.
