Target’s price investment and higher costs associated with online orders are hurting its margins, which restricts the stock’s upside potential.
While Amazon and Wal-Mart are grabbing most of the headlines in the grocery wars, Costco still offers the best pricing and an “unquestioned” value proposition, according to a new report from JP Morgan. JP Morgan analyst Christopher Horvers and his team compared prices in various supermarket categories among five major retailers and found that Costco prices, on a per-unit basis, are 30% cheaper than Wal-Mart, 14% less than Aldi, and a whopping 58% cheaper than Whole Foods.

Research Desk Line-up: Costco Wholesale Post Earnings Coverage LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / October 10, 2017 / Pro-Trader Daily takes a look at the latest corporate events and news making the headlines for ...
Costco Wholesale (COST:Nasdaq) By Cowen & Co. ($167.07, Oct. 6, 2017) We believe Costco Wholesale is well positioned to continue delivering double-digit earnings growth over the near-to-medium term driven by square-footage growth, membership revenue growth, and industry leading physical store traffic growth. Costco’s (COST) higher-income customer base (average household income of about $73,000) is faring better economically than low- to middle-income consumers, who continue to struggle with wage growth. Costco remains a proven executor with superior vertical integration and an impressive buying and merchant organization.
