In the video below, Motley Fool analyst Jim Mueller discusses the opportunities for Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFM ) .
Jim highlights two key drivers of the company's recent success as reasons to believe that Whole Foods Market is poised for further growth. First, its management believes that its addressable market is over 1,000 locations; at just 342 locations today, it has significant growth potential through continued expansion that is expected to triple the company's store count over time. Second, Jim highlights how the pricing power that Whole Foods Market enjoys thanks to its focus on premium and organic foods translates into net income margins that are significantly higher than the low margins typically generated by grocery store chains including SUPERVALU (NYSE: SVU ) , Safeway (NYSE: SWY ) and Kroger (NYSE: KR ) .
Jim believes that, in combination, these factors will lead to further opportunities for Whole Foods Market in the future.
It's hard to believe that a grocery store could book investors more than 30 times their initial investment, but that's just what Whole Foods has done for those who saw the organic trend coming some 20 years ago. However, as Jim discusses in this video, it may not be too late to participate in the long-term growth of this organic foods powerhouse.
