The Kroger Company (NYSE:KR) has an upcoming earnings release scheduled for June 16th. The stock is currently trading at $52. We think the stock will beat Q1 earnings expectations. As a result, the stock is likely to test a new high after the earnings.

The retail industry has in the recent past released reports showing increases in revenues. The increases were against declining or flat EPS. This has been due to the impacts of inflation. Investors wait to see whether Kroger will break away from the pattern.
