Whole Foods Market Inc. Research Report
Whole Foods Market is showing strong fundamentals, according to a Thomson Reuters report. With revised EPS estimates for 2013 and 2014, sales are expected to grow by 10% for the next three years. Prices are near the $83 long term support level that corresponds to the 100-week moving average. Being near to the $83 support is an opportunity to take a long position for Whole Foods Market. However, in order to re-establish a bullish trend in the medium term to come back to the $101.2 level, their stats should cross the $93.3 resistance area. Meanwhile, Whole Foods Market is focusing on their Whole Foods Foundation campaign that aims to raise $5.7 million to aid in global poverty.
