Dollar General: A Great Company at a Fair Price

DG

This quote is often attributed to Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio), but it is actually a Charlie Munger quote. What Munger, the vice chairman of Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-A)(BRK.B) conglomerate, meant by this statement is that he prefers excellent companies trading near their fair valuation to average companies trading at a discount. Dollar General has nearly 15,000 stores in the U.S., with an overall goal of having 25,000 stores nationwide. A tax rate of 21.6%, compared to 37.2% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2017, also helped drive earnings growth. Even though Dollar General has seen same-store sales increase for the past 28 years, the company isn't resting on its past success. In order to help grow, Dollar General has been very aggressive in its capital spending. Shares currently only yield 1.12%, which is less than the yield of the S&P 500 (1.81%), but the company has shown fairly impressive dividend growth rates so far in its young dividend paying history. Even better, Dollar General has plenty of room to increase its dividend. Since initiating its dividend, Dollar General has had an average payout ratio of just 22.7%.
