    DLTR vs FDO

    I'm currious if someone can explain why the street affords such a hefty premium for FDO?
    DLTR has $3 in cash....well above FDO.
    DLTR has higher margins.
    DLTR has a much lower PE multiple (by aprox 40%)
    Only negative comp is 17% growth rate vs 18% for FDO.
    Thanks if anyone can give some clear reasoning

    I'm looking to buy into one of the dollar stores once the market settles down. I've owned FDO previously and done well but it's too expensive for me now. DG's debt scares me. NDN is too expensive. That leaves me wondering why the street hated DLTR......I've shopped at DLTR & the stores are a carbon copy of the product offerings at FDO's I've visited & DLTR is brighter & cleaner then FDO. Anyone??? Thanks
