Dollar General, Dollar Tree likely to have 'very different' futures, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Brandon Fletcher says Dollar General (DG) and Dollar Tree's (DLTR) wholly owned Family Dollar banner may seem alike, but they have meaningful differences. The similarities are that they sell almost the exact same products, have similar store sizes, and target similar customers, he says. However, the analyst believes these two retail banners will likely have "very different" futures, which can only be understood by considering some subtle differences in store experience, merchandising, layout, and geography. The geographic differences are very stark and Fletcher thinks will matter more over time.

Dollar General should be bought on pullback, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh continues to rank Dollar General as a top pick, and would take advantage of the pullback. As the year progresses, the analyst believes delivery of financial guidance and potentially better sentiment toward the space could help to drive shares higher. Parikh reiterates an Outperform rating and $108 price target on the shares.

Dollar Tree price target lowered to $92 from $108 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh lowered his price target for Dollar Tree (DLTR) to $92 from $108 following a softer Q1 report even considering weather challenges. We continue to prefer Dollar General (DG) versus Dollar Tree given ongoing challenges at Family Dollar. The latter's shares are more appropriate for investors with a long-term horizon, he contends. Parikh reiterates an Outperform rating on Dollar Tree's shares.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Big Lots (BIG) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Loop Capital with analyst Anthony Chukumba saying the company got off to a "tough start in fiscal 2018 with a store sales decline and continued slowdown in furniture sales." 2. Jounce Therapeutics (JNCE) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Cory Kasimov saying he views the company's ASCO data as disappointing. 3. MetLife (MET) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Alex Scott saying he see slower progress towards return on equity improvement and believes some of the upside from capital return acceleration is behind the company at this point. 4. Dollar Tree (DLTR) downgraded to Accumulate from Buy at Gordon Haskett. 5. SM Energy (SM) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Betty Jiang saying she believes SM Energy's discount valuation is appropriate given it has greater than average downside risk in a constrained Permian takeaway environment.

Five Below price target raised to $105 from $76 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Edward Kelly raised his price target for Five Below to $105 from $76 as he believes the company's Q1 update "firmly cements" it as one of the premier growth stocks in consumer, as the company provided an "impressive" beat and raised guidance despite upcoming headwinds.

Five Below price target raised to $115 from $78 at Buckingham
Buckingham Kelly Crago raised Five Below's price target to $115 from $78 following "impressive" Q1 comps of 3.2%, versus her estimate of 3.5%. Crago said comps held up nicely despite unfavorable weather and recommends investors add to positions given strong performance over the last four quarters. The company guided Q2 comps to flat, despite an extremely difficult comparison due to fidget spinners, demonstrating the flexibility the company has to offset negative headwinds, the analyst wrote. Crago is incrementally more bullish on Buy rated Five Belo's long-term opportunity to drive 20%+ earnings growth for the foreseeable future.

In a research note to investors, the analyst, who has an Outperform rating on the shares, says that while Five Below isn't "cheap," he believes it warrants a "scarcity premium" and remains a buyer.

Low levels of food inflation to keep weighing on grocery names, Oppenheimer says
Following a government report this week that showed another month of soft food inflation data, Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh said he expects low food inflation to continue to weigh on grocery names, taking a "subdued" view into earnings for pure-play grocery names like Kroger (KR), National Grocers (NGVC), Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM) and Smart & Final Stores (SFS). Parikh's top picks across the broader grocery/discounter space remain Dollar General (DG) and Dollar Tree (DLTR), followed by Sprouts, he said. The analyst has an Outperform rating on Dollar General, Dollar Tree and Sprouts, and a Perform rating on Kroger, Natural Grocers, Smart & Final Stores and United Natural Foods (UNFI).
