Tremendously efficient company, providing quality at comparatively low prices. The stores are invariably much cleaner than, for example, the typical Big Lots unit. ROE at approx. 25% is very high for this type of retailer. In spite of rapid expansion, DLTR has more cash than debt, a figure that impresses me greatly.

You might be interested to know that http://www.gurufocus.com says that many of this Co.'s top officers have been selling shares in the open market lately.

On the other hand the "Fair Value Calculator" at the same site gives it a value of $52.48. Why are the insiders selling if the stock is actually undervalued? I wish I knew.

WalMart will pay a big price if it does not make a move to buy out Dollar Tree
and Dollar Store. Imagine if 20 years ago the local 7-11 sold groceries and
consumables like soap and milk for less than the large grocery stores, and,
their location was closer and less crowded. The margins DLTR is showing
selling good products for less is attractive to all consumers, not just low income.
Anyone shorting the Dollars will be without. Ed

I recently shopped Dollar Store, and Family Dollar here in Austin. What a difference. Dollar Store was crammed and cramped, disorganized, and understaffed. Easy pickins for shoplifters. Family Dollar was clean, wide isles, large check out area, adequate staff, and, the merchandise is well organized. I was a stocker for Safeway in College, so I know the drill. Dollar Store's CEO better visit his competition and take notes if he want's to keep his good customers after Family Dollar moves into the hood. Ed
