Zacks Equity Research

Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 5% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $95.27 to $99.19 in the past one-month time frame.

The move came after the company’s fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 results (ended Feb 2, 2019) surpassed analyst expectations.

The company has seen two positive estimate revisions in the past few weeks, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has also moved higher over the past few weeks, suggesting that more solid trading could be ahead for Dollar Tree.
