    every dollar general i go into in florida is a dirty mess.

    Where is my man Isaac? He was spot on with his assessment! I got to give you credit, sir. You were dead on with earnings. I am a lucky duck being able to discard my puts in the black! How they beat earnings and why this stock is being shorted with the raising of price targets is a bit of a mystery to me.

    loading up. . .recession proof retail. ...awesome Earnings beat, but got caught up with DLTR going down. ..solid fundamentals with dividend ..couldn't ask for more solid stock.

    As inflation and gas prices increase, DG is the perfect source for local necessities, with prices others cannot beat, when you add the cost of travel, and time.

    how much are prices being raised becausebof inflatiin and how much because if greed? I went to DG this morning tl pick up snacks. the pastry called Honey Bun that i like used to be 1 buck. now it is $1.50. ☹. 50% inflation. really? i call it greed. there were fewer people than usual, and I dont wonder why. Im long DG in a drip account.

    I've heard local rumors that someone is buying out Dollar General. {Is there any truth to this? I like shopping Dollar General very convenient.

    I went to a DG and spoke to the clerk about inflation. Prices at DG are up considerably. However, the clerk said that she did most of her shopping at DG and got a much better deal there than at the local supermarket. Have to believe that there will be an earnings surprise.

    DG is recession proof for sure, even Walmart bad news proof. DG only down 2% while Wal-Mart is -8%.

    revenue up slightly
    34,570,837 34,220,449 33,746,839

    was 33.746

    1.4% in a year

    very small increase from the center data point (whole year) to the left data point, 6 mos later
    1.01% x 2 to annualize it, so 2%

    but the PE is 25

    and the PE should be a maximum of 2 times 2%, ie 4

    so the PE appears to be 6 times too high

    earnings down slightly year to year

    things could change, but prices of things (inflation) is up, so spending most likely is slowing, not going up; anyhow we have actual data to date

    247.72 at the close

    cut it in half to get started, $123.86 per share

    even the 52 week low is high compared to that


    invert the PE of 25 and get $4 profit per $100 invested. Not bad. And the dividend is near 1%.


    So what is the problem.

    The debt. Check out how fast it grew over the last 3 or 4 years.

    Hopefully for them, they set a large amount of new stores. I guess it is time to look into that.

    We shall see. I have gone and done reconnaissance in Dollar Generals and have been quite underwhelmed by what I have seen. I want to know whose clever idea it was to bump up the EPS by 50 cents quarter over quarter. I will be absolutely flabbergasted if DG hits $2.92 a share come next month!

    Walmart's problems are not Dollar General problems. I have cut way back on shopping at Walmart because their prices went a little crazy upwards but Dollar General's prices are just fine. Buy the dip here.

    PE 25

    but the earnings and revenue growth seem to be around 2%

    and the debt has grown too high

    Might be at a sell point now, it’s moved higher too fast imo…. Great slow growing business but may have some headwind in near term, we will see
