    Hope it continues to decline, I will be adding to position. Great company and prospects, not hyping, just stating facts.....

    Does anyone know if DG ever takes a complete physical inventory at their stores? A friend of mine's son works at a store and he has seen perpetual inventory reports that show very large discrepancies by individual item. Just curious about their policies.

    Looks like a good place to hide!

    I don't like the fact that Dollar General are trying to expand the upscale store concept. These are the kinds of stores that are dying. Think GAP, Sears and RadioShack all companies with rather expensive goods. They are trying to do a tjmax rip off and it is terrible. I anticipate a drop in revenue to start off as they expand then a increase in profits and revenues. Then once everyone gets used to the store and it is no longer new a step drop in re and prof and maybe even selling off the brand.

    LOL lot of insider sales before year end, wondering why.

    Comments by J.P. Morgan, today, about DG very positive, going forward into this year. Will weather this storm better than many and seems to be a safe haven.

    Does anyone know where one of their new stores called Popshelf (I think) is located? I think they said they have 6 now. I would like to visit one.

    Hoping the sediment is not true, one of the reasons I bought was because DG does not own all thier stores , which meant a lot of assets are now part of thier financial responsibility meaning more stock value. How ever somebody somewhere has decided it is In thier best interest to purchase all (100%) brick & mortar stores. In a retail setting, not a smart decision at all . To many company brick and mortar companies have fallen over the last 2 decades too many to list, more over if they change the business model of leasing or renting …. I’m out of this stock.

    would DG be impacted by supply chain issues like GAP and Nordstrom?

    Really bad move jacking up all the prices at Dollar Tree by 25%. Some MBAs need to see who shops at their store.
  • B
    Very volatile... don't own. Will do very good if a deep recession
  • G
    Yahoo showing the price is up $15.45 at 5am??
  • U
    DG straight up
  • J
    Maybe a reaction to CEO selling shares. I don't blame him with new tax laws coming.

    Loving DG this time of year. Happy Holidays.

    I grew up in a very small town. On the "main strip" we have only one traffic light, two restaurants, a gas station. Also, we have two Dollar Generals in the area, and they do great in both spots. It's impressive the areas that Dollar General can thrive in that no other store can. Walmart, Target, Costco would go broke quickly in areas like these due to their high operating costs and the need for large populations. DG, on the other hand, can afford to dominate the suburban, and even rural areas.

    On my way home from work, if I need a few items, I'm heading to DG. Could I find them in Walmart, Target, etc? Absolutely, but walking in those stores is a 20 minute trip at the minimum, and that's if you know exactly where you're going. If not, you can easily be stuck in there an hour trying to navigate through the hundreds of aisles trying to find what you're looking for. On top of that, you're stuck parking the car at the back of the lot, a hundred yards away from the doors. DG, on the other hand, I can be in and out within 5 minutes and can park my car right next to the store.

    DG even has the luxury of marking up prices on items, and people will pay for it based upon the convenience of shopping quickly and in areas where there are no other options. DG is going to be a powerhouse and will dominate the growing suburbs for decades. LOAD UP.

    DG is a credible viable company as I have analyzed it’s financial position, and placement with it’s competition, ratings, etc. I think the market is overreacting. We will see this in the upcoming release of its financial results. The stock should be trading around $225 to $250.
