Ken Perkins, our Whole Foods analyst, thinks there is a possibility that this could work out well, depending on some of the details. Having a bigger store count, even if some of them are lower margin, can help spread some costs around and could help mitigate some of those margin worries. But even after the sell-off, Whole Foods shares still don't look particularly cheap. Investors who are interested in this narrow-moat company might want to wait for an even better

      underlying economic issues, it's only going to have a short-term effect. Stipp: Whole Foods jumped after the strong quarter they reported, but you say investors might want to pause before shopping on those shares? Glaser: They did have a good quarter. Comps were up over 3%, and their new stores are being more productive than many analysts had initially expected. But it probably is too soon to say Whole Foods has completely turned the corner and is going to see very strong growth from here on out. They still have some competitive threats from other grocers moving into the organic/natural space, and shedding their image of being "Whole Paycheck," being very expensive and really limiting the size of their market. It's still a good business. It's still going to continue to do well, but future growth prospects could be somewhat constrained by that competitiveness. With the jump in the shares, they are now trading above our fair value estimate, and Ken Perkins, our Whole Foods analyst, thinks you'd be better off waiting for a margin of safety, waiting for a discount, before diving in. Stipp: Alibaba's first
