"I am the largest grocer to 400,000 Restaurants, Hospitals, Schools and other health care institutions in the US. I command 15% market share and am generally considered recession-resistant. While my margins hover around 3%, I have high ROE of mid 30%, signifying good allocation of capital by managemnet. While my debt has risen to 1.4B, it only represent 1.5 years of earnings. I chose to use 600M of the free cash flow to buy back shares. I also pay for you to invest and currently give back to you 2% of your investments as dividends. I average around 9% revenue for the last 3, 5 and 10 years while my EPS growth has been around 11% to 14% in the last 10 years. I am currently selling at a P/E last seen in 1997 of 21.5, a good discount because my most recent quarter (Q2), while has shown a good sales growth of 9% also shows that high fuel prices has taken a toll on my earnings. Who am I ?"
