Dollar Tree store turnaround execution 'inconsistent', says Loop Capital

Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba kept his Buy rating and $120 price target on Dollar Tree (DLTR), saying he expects the management to create shareholder value by "fixing" the Family Dollar stores or selling the franchise. The analyst notes that his recent visits to several stores indicate an "uneven" progress in execution - most were in good condition, but some had "rampant out-of-stocks, clogged aisles, dirty floors and merchandise displays, and generally apathetic staffers". Chukumba further states that Dollar Tree's current valuation discount relative to Dollar General (DG) is unwarranted because of its "rosier long-term earnings growth prospects".

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.

Buy
Dollar Tree sale of Family Dollar would drive stock higher, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba keeps his Buy rating and $120 price target on Dollar Tree but notes that performance at the Family Dollar segment has regressed in Q1 after 3 consecutive quarters of comps and operating margin expansion. The analyst speculates that if the company put this business up for sale, there would be several parties that might be interested. Chukumba adds that the sale would be "at worst slightly accretive" to earnings and likely result in "significant" stock price appreciation.
