Sprouts Farmers Market: A Stock For A High Inflation Environment

Inflation has been reaching elevated levels in most goods around the world, with food being no exception. Sprouts Farmers Market's customer base and product line should both be quite robust to the effects of inflation. The company has posted good results, even excluding the one-time tailwind from COVID purchasing patterns, but its valuation has not kept pace.
