Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Dollar Tree stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Dollar Tree's strategic initiatives like improving store productivity and store expansion have aided the stock to outperform the industry in the last three months. The company delivered solid bottom line results in third-quarter fiscal 2018, returning to positive earnings surprise trend after reporting bottom line miss in the preceding three quarters. Moreover, an impressive comps trend reflects strength in both Dollar Tree and Family Dollar banners, which should drive growth. However, sales lagged estimates for the fourth straight quarter. The company also continued to witness cost pressures arising from higher domestic freight and investment in store wages, which hurt margins. Due to persistence of these pressures, the company lowered its sales view for fiscal 2018 and also narrowed earnings forecast. Additionally, the company’s results are likely to be hurt by the imposition of tariffs on Chinese goods." (12/5/2018)
