Heavy Hitters: Yelp Surges 5%, Facebook Breaks Through IPO Price
Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ:WFM) shares fell 1.7 percent in late afternoon trading. The grocery chain beat earnings expectations, but revenue of $3.06 billion fell short of estimates calling for $3.09 billion. “We are dedicated to providing communities with fresh, healthy, natural and organic food and are on track to deliver our fourth consecutive year of increases in new store openings. We continue to gain market share and see demand for 1,000 Whole Foods Market stores in the U.S. alone,” said Walter Robb, co-chief executive officer.
