Shares of Kroger (NYSE:KR) opened today above their pivot of $28.61 and have already reached the first level of resistance at $28.86. Analysts will be watching for a cross of the next upside pivot targets of $29.00 and $29.39.

The Kroger Co. operates supermarkets and convenience stores in the United States. The Company also manufactures and processes some of the foods that its supermarkets sell.
