Dollar General CEO says challenging retail environment continued into Q3

"The challenging retail environment that we experienced in the 2016 second quarter continued into the third quarter, contributing to weakness in our same-store sales and our financial performance. In the 2016 third quarter, we invested in gross margin with the goal of driving traffic and sales over time. Many of these actions are gaining traction with our core customers, and we are encouraged by the early results. As expected, the full benefit on our same-store sales will not be immediate. In addition, we saw an acceleration in headwinds from average unit retail price deflation and reductions in SNAP benefits in the 2016 third quarter as compared to the 2016 second quarter. We are focused on efforts to drive traffic in our stores and to control the factors we can control as we look to overcome the issues impacting our results, many of which we believe are macroeconomic and transitory in nature. We continue to believe that our business model is strong given our value proposition to our consumers. We are investing in accelerated new store growth with excellent returns, as well as the infrastructure to support this growth, while continuing to return cash to shareholders," said Dollar General CEO Todd Vasos, .

Piper thinks blocking of Overtime Rule came too late
An Obama-appointed judge in Texas surprisingly blocked the Overtime Rule set to take effect on December 1, Piper Jaffray analysts in the Hardlines Retail & Specialty Products space tell investors in a research note. The analysts say that regardless of whether the injunction is upheld, their research suggests that the ruling comes too late for larger companies to pull back on the planned Overtime Rule change. Payroll and IT systems are likely set to adjust this coming Sunday, they point out. Piper's analysts expect the expense headwinds from the OT rule change for retailers/restaurants to remain in place. The retailers they believe that are most impacted from the rule are Dollar General (DG), Dollar Tree (DLTR), Regis (RGS) and Sally Beauty (SBH). The restaurants they believe are most impacted are Bojangles (BOJA), Starbucks (SBUX), Sonic (SONC), Noodles & Company (NDLS), Potbelly (PBPB), Del Taco (TACO) and Zoe's Kitchen (ZOES).
