I believe in Icahn and Peltz to push Family Dollar to make the necessary changes to realize its full value. Any consolidation in the dollar store industry should lead to growth.

More local and easier access for common goods than a Walmart or Target.

Changing My Caps to Reflect my investing strategy. I start with a simple screener trying to find undervalued dividend paying stocks. Then because I want to invest in things I understand I eliminate any businesses I have not heard of or in areas I lack knowledge ( Financials, Precious Metals). After that I check the Caps Rating and it gets a thumbs up if it is rated 4 stars or higher. Very few 3 star companies will get a thumbs up but occasionally i will go out on a limb with one.

Seems that this is a good stock both in good times and bad.

It's up 11% YTD + the dividend.

In 2008, this was only 2nd to Wrigley's as the best performing stock.

If the market rally hits a pause, or heads down, I'd expect people to continue going to this stock, and its stores.

Tight budgets and low employment drive consumers to the dollar stores in droves. This will continue through March 2013, when unemployment numbers go down, and the economy picks up speed. The tax incentives to repatriate outsourced production will promote domestic growth.

CAP price entered at $50.29. This gives them a PE ratio of 16.65. A cash flow yield of 3.6% and a dividend yield of 1.43%
Dow 10,987.29: SP500 1,154.24
Gold 1859.5
Silver 41.70
Copper 3.99
Oil $87.14

As the markets fall, FDO should stabilize faster than other retailers as more shoppers look for bargains in convenient locations. The last recession was very good for FDO and the fear that we may slide into another should help their stock price. Dividend yield is 1.43% which isn't bad.

Nice play on continued weakness in economy, strong cash flow, nice returns on capital, solid balance sheet, reasonable price. What's not to like?
