Food Inequality Won't Slow Whole Foods, Sprouts

Food Inequality Won't Slow Whole Foods, Sprouts

TheStreet (Feb. 26, 2014) Prices may be higher at organic food stores, but that won't slow growth at natural food sellers like Whole Foods and Sprouts, says Joe Dobrow, author of "Natural Prophets". The natural products industry has grown to over $100 billion in the past 25 years as Americans have learned to appreciate the value of healthy eating, says Dobrow. He also says the major food companies like Mondelez and Nestle are joining in the trend by buying successful natural food operators and growing their brands while letting them keep their values.

Possible Natural Gas Squeeze in Europe Won't Hurt U.S. Prices

Possible Natural Gas Squeeze in Europe Won't Hurt U.S. Prices

TheStreet (May 14, 2014) While threats by Russia's Gazprom -- a majority state-controlled natural gas extractor -- to cut gas deliveries to Ukraine rise, American investors should know such action won't hurt prices in the United States. GFI Group senior energy derivative trader Elliot Warren tells TheStreet's Joe Deaux that traders aren't worried about U.S. prices because we can't export natural gas abroad and we can't make up for a European supply problem. Warren, speaking about the recent trade in natural gas, says prices have dipped back down to $4 after spiking during the winter. Warren says natural gas inventories will build during the summer, which will suppress price increases. Video provided by TheStreet

Gas Natural Sale Sidelined Until CEO Lawsuit Resolved

Gas Natural Sale Sidelined Until CEO Lawsuit Resolved

TheStreet (July 11, 2014) Gas Natural, the Ohio-based company mired in scandal, was recently talking to prospective buyers about a sale, but talks came to a screeching halt when former CEO Richard Osborne filed a lawsuit against the company. The scandal started back in November when Ohio regulators ordered an investigation into Gas Natural. In May, the company announced that Osborne would be retiring and his son would take the reins. Late last month, Osborne Senior struck back, filing a lawsuit against the company. The suit has forced Gas Natural to put the sale on the back burner, but sources say that as soon as the matter is settled, the company will once again be on the prowl for a buyer. Even with the controversy surrounding the company, there will be no shortage of buyers as there is an intense level of interest in the gas local distribution space. Similar companies that have recently traded hands have fetched rich ebitda multiples of 10.5 times. With about $20 million in ebitda last year, Gas Natural could easily fetch north of $200 million in a sale. Video provided by TheStreet

Algonquin Power Goes Activist on Its Target Gas Natural

Algonquin Power Goes Activist on Its Target Gas Natural

TheStreet (July 23, 2014) When The Deal's Amanda Levin exclusively reported that Gas Natural had been talking to potential suitors, the Ohio company responded with a flat denial, claiming its board had not talked to anyone about a possible sale. Lo and behold, Canadian utility Algonquin Power and Utilities not only had approached the company, but it did it three times. Its last offer was for $13 per share as Gas Natural's was trading at a 60-day moving average of about $12.50 per share. Now Algonquin, which has a 4.9% stake in Gas Natural, has taken its case to shareholders, calling on them to back its proposals or, possibly, a change in the target's board.
