Canaccord Genuity reiterates a 'Buy' on United Natural Foods (NASDAQ: UNFI) price target of $58.00 (from $50.00).

Analyst, Scott Van Winkle, said, "The robust natural/organic category growth, coupled with UNFI’s position as the leading distributor in the sector, should deliver strong sales/earnings growth."

"Raising F2012 and F2013 EPS estimates to $1.95 and $2.27 from $1.91 and $2.17, respectively, driven by a modest increase in our revenue forecasts and extra week in F2013, but most importantly a higher operating margin forecast."
