Dollar General price target raised to $120 from $110 at UBS

UBS analyst Michael Lasser raised his price target on Dollar General to $120 from $110 following meetings with management. The analyst believes the company can sustain high-single digit sales growth and low-double digit earnings growth for an extended period. He said same store sales should benefit from new store maturation along with a healthy economy, providing a good set up for the shares. Lasser reiterated his Buy rating on Dollar General shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Clorox (CLX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying the company offers a "favorable growth profile and consistent record of industry outperformance," with efforts to increase revenues through innovation while conducting "low-cost operations." 2. Dollar General (DG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Buckingham with analyst Bob Summers saying he expects sustained operating strength through at least the second half of 2018 driven by the ongoing benefit from initiatives and investment as well a favorable consumer environment. 3. SAIC (SAIC) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Sheila Kahyaoglu saying she is "incrementally more positive" and views the 10% pullback in shares since the Engility (EGL) deal announcement as a buying opportunity. 4. Helmerich & Payne (HP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley FBR with analyst Tom Curran citing valuation as well as the company's technology and super spec strategy. 5. Canadian National (CNI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Christian Weatherbee saying he left meetings with management constructive that the "heavy lifting" of fixing the company's network and adding capacity is largely complete and should pay dividends through "robust" volume growth, greater fluidity, and lower costs. And this improvement coincides with easier comps, as Canadian National's network "was greatly stressed into the winter of last year from a surge in volume and bad weather."

Hold
Dollar General shares 'near fair value', says Argus
Argus analyst Chris Graja kept his Hold rating on Dollar General but nudged his FY19 EPS view to $6.15 from $6.03. The analyst anticipates the company to grow its earnings by an annualized 11% over the next 5 years with a combination of opening new stores and continued offering of "everyday low prices". Graja also sees Dollar General successfully navigating the margin pressures by "managing the mix of consumable and discretionary merchandise, making promotions more effective, increasing the mix of higher-margin private brands". Longer term, the analyst keeps his Hold rating on the shares, stating that after a 35% rise in the stock price over the last 12 months, Dollar General is "near fair value".
