    • Been hanging around the $45 level for a while now on the charts-- might be working on forming a base at that level. Need a few more earnings reports to confirm things aren't getting "too much better" in the economy for people to switch from the dollar stores to Walmart and the higher-priced discounters, if that makes sense. If they are switching, then the story is over. AND, if they are switching but the company is still building out the number of stores, those stores probably won't be as profitable as the current ones, and that would burn through cash and bring down the margins.

      Need to see things getting better enough to have current customers increase the amount they are spending at the store, without switching to other outlets.
