    Fundamentals are good and solid , great support at $205 , RSI & Moving average are uptrend. It can easily hit $220 by this or next week.

    As long as people would rather spend less on products than more, there is no long term bear case to be made for DG. I advised people to buy the latest earnings dip. Those that listened are sitting pretty. Rising rates may be a headwind but not long term, and they certainly haven't been able to stop the rise in the stock price as of recently. DG is going to continue to do well whether the economy is shut down or fully open. People aren't going to like cheap consumer prices any less than before.

    Should today's price close over 214 then rest assured 225 will be taken out.

    Dg has moved quite a way, from a few weeks ago of big drop. On path to keep the upward climb, with some profit-taking pullbacks. Just my opinion, but all stores near us, shopping is staying consistent and a couple of new stores are being added to areas that really need them (many more than these two being added, but these two are out in country, where availability to shop is non-existent. Both should do very well, as they are in high traffic areas, on major state roads.

    If DG had the smae p/e multiple as TGT the shares would be $215...if it had the same multiple as WMT, the shares would be $294.....loose hands got shook out yesterday by men in pin striped suits....this is a $220-$250 stock all day long...I think we make a new 52 wk high in the second quarter. A permanent and growing underclass will keep feeding DG coffers. CC was quite good. Higher pandemic related costs reduced profits to .10 lower than consensus expectations. Margins improved. I felt they were being a bit coy lowering guidance to benefit their stock buyback program and create a lower bar going forward. Billions of stimulus dollars will flow to DG cash registers. G.L.

    Slowly but surely making its way back to 220, just like I said it would. I don't expect a pullback this time either. I think we see 250 before we see the 100s again. Very glad I chose DG over DLTR, I think DG's business model is superior.

    From what I took away from the conference call, there was a lot more to like than dislike. The negatives were that SG&A expenses ramped up. The positives were that now this marks seven straight quarters where gross margins have increased, and operating profit also increased. In additions, inclement weather limited consumer traffic to below normal levels. 2021 guidance failed to please the street too, but IMO this shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone as stuff like sales would've experienced a slight decrease upon economic reopening as well. Earnings came in below expectations too. Overall I'm not concerned and think the dip should be bought. DG has huge loyalty amongst their customers and their low prices will continue to attract more and more customers. I became a regular customer last year. Temporary bump in the road IMO. This will go back above $200 once the rate scare is over. Long.

    Say what you want about the people who go to DG, bottom line is this company helped a lot of Americans out during the pandemic

    I lost a good paying job back in 2006. A friend recommended that I go to DG to save some money. I was embarrassed that someone would see me there. I’ve been back at work since 2008 and continue to this day to go to DG. How can you not. The savings are great. I don’t buy food there but definitely toiletries and Greeting cards and dishwater. I think this unemployment surge will bring DG long term customers

    thought it was going to be so much worse based on earnings.

    AMZN hasn't had any bad news and it's been painful.

    If you read the annual report you will see that last quarter DG bought 900m shares at around 210-211 and added more money for the current quarter. Want to bet the bought the hell out of their shares last month in the 175-200 range. Most well managed sp500 companies manage their stock price because their pay incentives are tied to the stock price for which they receive options based on performance. I sold calls for 220 for next week thinking with the price at 207 there would be no way it will get to 220 in this short a time but hopefully they will expire and I won't have to buy them back, lol.

    If you chose to invest in DG instead of DLTR you made the right decision. DG on a chart has dramatically outperformed DLTR over the past year. I think their business model and marketing strategies are superior as well. I also think it's a better growth story. This is definitely one of the better investment decisions of my career.

    EPS of $10.10/sh. yet only a $1.44/yr. dividend.
    Seems rather low ,doesn't it?

    DG is a credible viable company as I have analyzed it’s financial position, and placement with it’s competition, ratings, etc. I think the market is overreacting. We will see this in the upcoming release of its financial results. The stock should be trading around $225 to $250.

    $DASH conversation
    Trying to pinpoint where, exactly to get into this. I doubt it goes under $100 but if it does, I'm going to pounce. I love these companies that plan on attacking the suburban and small town markets. $DASH $DG $GO are three great examples. Not every company can operate in these markets, but the ones that can will dominate in the future with the suburban revolution.

    I drive for DASH in my spare time. I hardly ever see an UberEats or GrubHub order in my market. DASH completely dominates.
