Dollar General Corporation (DG) projected to achieve 1.40% earnings growth for this year – Investor News Place

DG

Growth in EPS is an important measure of management performance because it shows how much money the company is making for it’s shareholders, not only due to changes in profit, but also after all the effects of issuance of new shares (this is especially important when the growth comes as a result of acquisition). The recent session unveiled a 21.70% positive lead over its 52-week stock price low and showed downward move of -12.11% over its 52-week high stock price. Moving averages can help smooth out these erratic movements by removing day-to-day fluctuations and make trends easier to spot. Since they take the average of past price movements, moving averages are better for accurately reading past price movements rather than predicting future past movements. Dollar General Corporation (DG) stock price performed at a change of -6.33% from 20 day SMA and stands at a distance of -5.03% away from 50 day SMA.

Dollar General has more locations than McDonald's and Starbucks

DG

The discount chain, known for being a bargain hunter's paradise, has quietly become one of the largest retailers in the United States in terms of store count. In its most recent quarterly earnings, reported in November, same-store sales at Dollar Tree's stores alone were up 2.3%, while they were down 0.4% at Family Dollar locations. A spokesperson for Dollar Tree told Business Insider that it plans to open 550 new locations in 2019, 350 of which will be Dollar Tree stores and 200 will be Family Dollar. Analysts say that the company is growing at a pace that is largely "unthinkable" in retail. While many retailers have been squeezed by growing competition online and from Amazon, Dollar General and the dollar-store sector in general have flourished, swooping in and offering customers prices that are 20-40% lower than grocery and drug stores.
