#1 - Dollar General (NYSE:DG)

The first company on the list is one with the most aggressive store opening plans. Dollar General (NYSE:DG) plans to open 1,035 new stores in 2021. In fact, according to data released by Coresight Research, one in every three new stores to open in 2021 will be a Dollar General store.

Dollar General caters to small towns that are not serviced by big-box retailers. This gives it the ability to capture a wide demographic base.

Central to Dollar General’s plans is an expansion of its Popshelf brand which targets a higher-income consumer. The company plans to build these as stand-alone stores as well as store-in-store remodels. Dollar General is also expanding its selection of frozen meats and produce to provide options for health-conscious consumers.

In the trailing twelve months, DG stock is up 11.6%. It is down 3% in 2021 and it’s fair to wonder why. Some of it may be skepticism that the company can repeat its strong growth numbers. Another reason may be reports that a new CEO may take charge in the near future. Both of those concerns look to be overblown and the stock has been making a nice rally since March.
