Consumer staples are goods and services that people buy on a regular basis regardless of their income level or the state of the economy. These products are essential for everyday life, so even when economic conditions become unfavorable, consumers continue to purchase them.
Consumer staples stocks are securities that represent companies in the consumer staples industry. This sector of the stock market includes companies involved in the production, distribution, and sale of essential goods and services needed by the public on a regular basis.
This means that when the economy is doing well, these stocks can perform even better than usual due to increased demand. On the other hand, when the market is down, these stocks can still provide investors with a steady stream of income. Let’s take a look at two consumer staples stocks to check out in the stock market this month.
Leading off, The Kroger Company (KR) is one of the largest grocery store chains in the United States. For a sense of scale, the company operates more than 2,700 stores throughout the U.S. Additionally, Kroger also has a strong presence in the online retail space, with its own website and a number of mobile apps.
Just this month, Kroger reported its third-quarter 2022 financial and operating results. In detail, Kroger reported Q3 2022 earnings of $0.88 per share with revenue of $34.2 billion. For context, Wall Street’s consensus estimates for the quarter were earnings of $0.82 per share and revenue of $34.0 billion. What’s more, the company was able to report a 7.3% increase in revenue versus the same period, in 2021.
Furthermore, Chairman and CEO Rodney McMullen commented, “Kroger achieved strong results in the third quarter as we continue to execute our Leading with Fresh and Accelerating with Digital strategy. Our associates are doing an outstanding job delivering a full, fresh and friendly experience across our seamless store and digital ecosystem.
