What are Wall Street analysts saying about Dollar Tree stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Dollar Tree stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Dollar Tree surpassed the industry in the past month gaining strength from its strategic initiatives that include improving store productivity as well as store expansion. The company’s continued restructuring and expansion initiatives, as evident from steady store openings and improvement of distribution centers, should keep driving revenues. Notably, the company opened its 15,000th store and 23rd distribution center in July. Moreover, we believe that focus on consumables and discretionary categories and the everyday low-price model are factors that are expected to drive traffic. However, the company’s dismal top and bottom line trend in recent quarters and a dismal outlook remain concerns. Further, deleverage in SG&A rate owing to higher labor expenses, store payroll costs and utilities expenses is likely to impact margins, which remained soft in the fiscal first quarter. Nonetheless, estimate for fiscal 2018 is trending up lately." (8/14/2018)

Comp sales w ere better than expected at +8.0%, versus B. Riley FBR/consensus of +7.0%/+7.2% and +MSD guidanc e. GM de-leverage was –80 bps, versus B. Riley FBR/consensus of –30 bps/–56 bps, driven by increased promotional activity and higher shipping costs from greater online penetration, while rent leveraged in the quarter. SG&A was +60 bps, versus B. Riley FBR/consensus of +80 bps/+77 bps, driven by higher sales, offset by higher wages and incentive compensation. Total inventories at cost increased +11% at 4Q-end, vs. top line sales increase of +5%. EPS and comp guidance for 1Q18 was above B. Riley FBR/consensus estimates. We will be listening on the call at 9:00 a.m. ET for more details regarding the 1Q18 outlook, product cost benefits, inventory composition/plans, comp/AUR drivers, supply chain/omni initiatives, QTD trends, and an update on international."
