The big story this week hit the wire early Friday morning, as Amazon announced its take over bid for WholeFoods – we will comment on that and its impact on the market. In our Your Stock, Our Take segment we take a question from a listener about the much maligned, Home Capital Group Inc. (HCG:TSX), which has recovered somewhat over the past month after trying to reassure the market of its continued solvency – is it a BUY at present? Our star of the week is also one of this week’s top stories, Whole Foods Market Inc. (WFM:NASDAQ), which jumped 29.4% after Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN:NASDAQ) announced it was buying the company for $42 per share in an all-cash transaction valued around $13.7 billion. Our dog of the week is Sears Canada Inc. (SCC:TSX) which lost 36.4% on the week after reported on Tuesday that its first quarter revenues were down 15%.
