Below are the three companies in the Food Retail industry with the lowest price to forward sales ratios. The ratio shows how much Wall Street values every dollar of the company's future sales and is useful in comparing comparable companies. Generally the lower the ratio, the more attractive the investment.

Casey's General Stores follows with a a price to forward sales ratio of 0.50, and Whole Foods Market rounds out the bottom five with a a price to forward sales ratio of 0.56.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Kroger on January 3rd, 2017 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $33.96.
