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)

DG vs. DLTR Likes the dollar store trade in general. He took profits in this name. Prefers DG, as it benefits from being in rural areas, away from the Targets and Walmarts. DLTR has a lot of urban competition. In the next 3-5 years, he prefers DG.

It's rolling over a little now and some are worried about retail, but this is fine, especially when the stimulus bill passes.

Plays well into what's happening with the pandemic and changes in consumer behaviour. Prefers Dollar General to Dollar Tree, as DG is in rural areas, with no Walmarts or Costcos. DLTR has lots of competition in the city and its latest acquisition hasn't worked out well. DLTR has 9% earnings growth rate, while Dollar General has 13-14% earnings growth rate.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly This discount retailer released strong earnings and continues to expand its business. In its earnings report released today EPS of $3.12 beat expectations of $2.47 and were up 92% from the previous year. Same store sales are up 15%. Management plans to complete a $2.5 billion share buyback by end-January. It pays a small dividend, but with a payout ratio of only 17% it is safe. We would trade this with a stop-loss of $189. Yield 0.71%

(A Top Pick May 22/19, Up 53%) DG has great locations away from big competitors in rural areas. About 75% of Americans live within 5 miles of their stores. Low beta at 0.7x vs. the S&P. Highly defensive. 80% of the goods they sell are consumables. It's a very defensive name.

DOL vs Dollar Tree vs. Dollar General He likes Dollar General for its location and execution. Doesn't like Dollar Tree because their locations are in urban centres where there's too much competition. He prefers Dollarama over Dollar General, but likes DOL, but many DOL stores are inside malls, which is a problem now (malls are closed). He prefers DOL to Dollar Tree because they execute better; and Dollar General over Dollar Tree.
