Better Buy: Costco Wholesale vs. Kroger

Better Buy: Costco Wholesale vs. Kroger

Consumers are looking to save money on essentials today, and that behavior is putting a new spotlight on price leaders like Costco Wholesale (NASDAQ: COST) and Kroger (NYSE: KR). Kroger is much cheaper, while Costco promises more stable earnings. Kroger said in early September that second-quarter comparable-store sales rose 6%, which was good enough to convince management to raise its 2022 outlook.
