On this week’s podcast (recorded June 26, 2017), Andrew discusses the impact of Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods.

 

Quick hits:

  • The announcement of Amazon’s $13.7B acquisition of Whole Foods last Friday resulted in significant declines across most of the grocery retailers, as investors grapple with how this merger will impact the grocery industry.
  • Although the money managers we work with don’t make investments based on a thesis that the company will likely be acquired, Amazon’s recent purchase of Whole Foods has resulted in speculation around who their next target will be.
  • While Amazon is just one company and won’t take over the entire world, it is clearly a disruptor and shouldn’t be ignored.
