Not the Best Day for Dollar General, Tailored Brands
In this Market Foolery podcast, host Chris Hill and MFAM Funds' Bill Barker discuss the very different reasons both stocks ended the day lower, the companies' outlooks and strategies, and more. They also weigh in on reverse stock splits, talk a bit about the Motley Fool 100 Index, and offer their thoughts on pie. I agree, it was pretty a pretty good report, actually. For a stock that's up as much as it's been in the last year, 10% sounds big today, but if you go back in time and buy this thing a year ago, you'd still do good. It's hard for me to imagine things are dramatically better for this business a year from now unless they take some pretty significant steps on the cost side of things. Unless they decide "OK, we're going to start closing a lot of locations. We're going to be a smaller company, but we're going to be a better-performing company as a result of that."
