Why I Just Bought More Whole Foods Stock

Earlier this month, Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFM  ) stock plunged 10% after the organic grocery chain reported solid fiscal fourth-quarter results but disappointed investors with weak forward guidance.

Shares have continued to tread downward since then, creating what the Fool's Steve Symington thinks is a fantastic buying opportunity for patient long-term investors.

After all, as Steve explains in the following video, the market presented a similar buying opportunity earlier this year, which panned out quite well for those willing to weather the downturn. As a result, he added to his existing position in Whole Foods stock last week.

Here's another great stock pick for next year
