Albertsons Seeks Online Safety With Kroger

Supermarket giant Albertsons‘ potential combination with Kroger makes a lot of sense. So much sense, in fact, that perhaps investors shouldn’t bank on it just yet.

Albertsons’ stock price jumped more than 11% after reports emerged on Thursday that Kroger was in talks to combine with Albertsons. Kroger’s shareholders were less enthused and its shares dipped slightly.
