COMMENT
They report Thursday. The street loves it, but nothing is as cheap as a dollar in their stores anymore.

TJX and Dollar General are the names you need to look at in retail now, though the market has been anti-retail. PE's may be high, but they benefit from the economic environment.

It is discretionary and staples, so a bit defensive. 80% of revenues are consumables, so will benefit as consumers trade down. Business has been steady due to pricing. Not cheap at 23x PE, but defensive and steady.

Low risk. You can buy this against $225.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly During periods of high inflationary concerns and general economic uncertainty, discount retailers (such as DG) are safe havens. It trades at 24x earnings compared to peers at 34x. It recently reported earnings that beat analyst expectations and supported a ROE of 37%. Management raised guidance, expecting sales to rise 11% and EPS to grow by a similar amount. The company is expanding its offerings to now include on-demand health care services, along with adding fresh produce to its outlets -- all things that will aid consumers and distinguish itself from other retailers. We recommend placing a stop loss at $205, looking to achieve $283 -- upside potential over 16%. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $267.46)

It reports this week. Wall Street says you should own this or Dollar Tree because we're facing a recession. He prefers DG.

Allan Tong’s Discover Picks DG stocks project same-store stales to rise 3-3.5% in 2022, net sales to increase 10-10.5%, and EPS to advance from 12% to 14%. All this as the chain opens another 1,110 stores this year. At the start of 2017, DG boasted 13,601 locations and started this year with 18,356. Compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2016 and 2021 was a healthy 9.2%. Its metrics beat its competitor, Dollar Tree whose CAGR in 2015-2021, for instance, was 4.9%. DG pays a 0.95% dividend and trades at 23.66x PE. Read 3 defensive stocks to find stability with your money for our full analysis.

TOP PICK
Not your garden-variety retailer. Good when consumers are tightening their belts. Good organic growth with 1000 new stores opening per year. 12-14% average annual earnings growth rate. Yield is 0.94%. (Analysts’ price target is $249.76)

BUY
The stars are lining up. Dollar General hasn't performed as well as DT, but worth looking at. DT's March 2 report was okay, but the street liked it. Price targets for DT are $165-180, so there's upside, especially with activists are involved. But D-Gen is really the hidden gem, which had a huge move a few months ago, then sold off with everything else. He expects DG to take the next leg higher.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Sep 28/20, Up 6%) It saw a K-shaped recovery, but the basic stocks have lagged this year, after getting a boost early in the pandemic in 2020. Nobody is hoarding soap anymore. DG continues to expand, faster than before, and maybe into Mexico. There's a delayed reaction to these shares and should do well in 2022. DG can pass on prices during inflation.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Analyst: Michael O'Reilly DG recently reported EPS at $2.82 versus $2.14 expectations. Higher profit margins helped contribute. Management updated EPS guidance to $9.50-$10.20 for the year, compared to $8.80-$9.50 previously. Analysts target EPS at $9.63. It pays a modest dividend, backed by a 16% payout ratio. We would buy this with a stop loss at $170, looking to achieve $235 -- upside potential of about 15%. Yield 0.8% (Analysts’ price target is $233.91)

All the essential retailers got hammered today, but they do well on Memorial Day usually. He expects a very good spring and summer for them.
