Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ:WFM) just released its earnings report, and while it met earnings per share and revenue estimates, and gave investors a look at its very solid free cash flow, the company lowered guidance, causing the premium stock to sell off a bit. In this video, Motley Fool consumer goods analyst Blake Bos tells investors that the company is still selling at a premium despite the sell-off, but highlights many of Whole Foods' strengths and tailwinds that may justify that premium and make the stock a buy.
