SUPERVALU is Among the Companies in the Food Retail Industry With the Highest Forward Earnings Yield (SVU, IMKTA, KR, WFM, CASY)

By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Food Retail industry with the highest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.

SUPERVALU ranks highest with a forward earnings yield of 17.3%. Following is Ingles Markets with a forward earnings yield of 7.2%. Kroger ranks third highest with a forward earnings yield of 6.4%.

Whole Foods Market follows with a forward earnings yield of 5.3%, and Casey's General Stores rounds out the top five with a forward earnings yield of 4.3%.
