7 Stocks to Buy As Americans Receive Stimulus Checks - 1 of 7

 

#1 - Dollar General (NYSE:DG)

Let’s start with what should seem like an obvious choice. Dollar General (NYSE:DG) has been one of the largest pandemic winners. It’s not just about the prices. Like real estate, location matters. And Dollar General has a large footprint that extends into areas that are not always covered by the big box chains. In fact, about 75% of the company’s nearly 17,000 stores are located in small cities defined as those with populations of 20,000 or less.

That’s significant in a world where social distancing and staying home have mattered. What’s also significant is that Dollar General is making a push into areas such as fresh produce and frozen goods. This is helping the company compete more directly in the grocery arena.

Dollar General stock is up about 34% in 2020. And with the stock down about 4% in the last month, DG stock may present an attractive buy-on-the-dip opportunity. To that end, analysts give Dollar General stock a price target of over $225.
