Sell DG Stock

Dollar General Corporation (DG) is down sharply today after the company missed second quarter earnings estimates and lowered EPS guidance for the current year from $7.10 to $8.30 a share from over $9 previously.

While the company blamed a weak consumer, I believe there are other issues impacting DG, and the investments the company outlined to improve results, including more workers per store, seem permanent and not temporary in nature. The stock no longer seems cheap, even if EPS improves to $9.00 next year, so let’s sell the stock and move on.
