Dollar General says October was strongest period of quarter

Says retail environment continued to be challenging in Q3. Says some traffic, sales-driving actions starting to take hold. Says that in terms of sales cadence, August and October were both positive, with October being strongest period of quarter. Says invested in incremental promotional activity, but says results did not meet expectations in Q3. Estimates headwinds from average unit retail price deflation, reduction in SNAP benefits hurt Q3 SSS by 150-175bps. Believes many of these issues are "transitory." Says "committed to controlling the factors we can control." Says "realistic" about operating environment. Comments taken from the Q3 earnings conference call. Dollar General is down 6.6% to $72.21 in morning trading.

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).
