How rotten is Whole Foods' (WFM) business at the moment? About as black as a 30 day old banana, suggests one analyst. Whole Foods has lost between nine to 14 million customers over the last six quarters, Barclay's analyst Karen Short estimated in a new note on Monday. Short believes Kroger (KR) has been one of the prime beneficiaries of the traffic exodus from Whole Foods as the traditional supermarket has ramped up its number of organic food offerings and discounts.
