  • sbw1: $DG might break out
  • Spearchucker53: $DG This inflation business may have some people getting spooked a bit but take a look at $DG jumping out of a tight squeeze.
  • sbw1: @Spearchucker53 $DG there is also a gap from 8/31 it is starting to fill
  • GOOSE: $DG BTO STOCK @ 141.68
  • champ: ...
    ....$DG will be reporting on 3/14.........
    All 4 will be reporting their #Holiday-Season sales numbers.....
    .....and as we can see $OLLI will be reporting last, so they will be moving off of these other 3, however like I have been posting $OLLI, rep ...
  • champ: A little more Info......$OLLI...this #lagger is HOD but still dancing around, #zigzagging and this Retailer doesn't even report until 3/20, this Retailer needs patience and it will reward nicely, is my guess......however I'm expecting real #nice-guidance, off of their #Holiday-Sales....with 24 new locations...... ....I'm still Holding and Building, this is an #Investment-position. ....$DG $DLTR $FIVE, these are Discount-retailers, that are in this same sector, all basically have the same type of stores, however $OLLI offers the larger discounts, that they get from the manufacture......this #Growth-Stock is going to take a little more time, could see all of their upgrades, off of their last record setting Q3 earnings report, is what the company said, on 12/6, see all of that Info that they reported....see their #earnings-transcript.
  • champ: $OLLI....nice #Green stairs on the 5-minute, on this Discount-store, this is a lagger....look at all of their upgrades.......... ....and this sector had another upgrade this morning, $DG, however $OLLI is the low risk #Lagger...... ....Retail Sales report in the morning...... ~~~~Don't be #late on your stock targets.........
  • champ: $OLLI...$75, #Top-pick, in the Discount store sector... because it is a huge lagger, see their last earnings report...... ....these are others....$DG $DLTR $FIVE.
  • champ: ...
    ...... $DG, $DLTR, $FIVE and others.........

    And on Boot Barn, Riley Securities came out on 11/21....with a Buy rating and also a price target at $92.....
    Boot Barn... sales clothing wear for workers, who want to dress-well and to also dress warm, ...
  • billyzeke: @champ $OLLI $BOOT $DG $DLTR $FIVE $JPM #Discount-Retailer #Strong-guidance #Discounts #new-Retail-sales-numbers #Adobe #News #Set-up #niche-retailer #No-other #see #employee #opened #lagger #before I can confirm that both of these stores are always packed here in VA, and that my college age son and most of his friends are big into the western wear right now.
  • champ: @billyzeke $OLLI $BOOT $DG $DLTR $FIVE $JPM #Discount-Retailer #Strong-guidance #Discounts #new-Retail-sales-numbers #Adobe #News #Set-up #niche-retailer .................thats good to know, #Thanks.... because I only know about the $BOOT location in Salinas, is really swapped....and I will be checking it again.... today and Saturday, when I drive-by, I will stop and go inside for a look, it only takes a few minutes and I did the same-thing last year.... .....and I caught a real nice move, around $40K.
  • champ: $DG $DLTR $FIVE all of these discount stores are down today, NP's.
  • champ: @Onthemark .....$OLLI ...Yes I'm still holding and I''m building today, not a good move Yet because of $DG today and $DG drop gives Investors a chance to build-up a nice position in $OLLI....and it looks like around $71 is support..... ....and I will be holding my #Core $OLLI position for as long as it takes, to go up.. to around $95....however I also build-up a large #Trading-position. ....I see you dropped your post....however this is what I'm doing with $OLLI.....because I have a huge Working-capitol-$$$$/position to work with. Good Luck!
  • champ: $OLLI...HOD at $73....this is a #Lagger and this is a New position for me this morning and they will be reporting their earnings on 12/6/before......and these are in the same sector.....$FIVE $DG $DLTR.
  • Onthemark: @champ $OLLI $FIVE $DG $DLTR #Lagger Thanks for pointing out. Took a starter now at 73.10.
  • champ: @Onthemark $OLLI $FIVE $DG $DLTR #Lagger... Now we will see if Insiders and Employees start taking positions and that could happen next week on Monday.......and with #3-full-trading-days-left, before they report their earnings, could see a real nice move........however still a little early....but if a move happens, need to be holding a position........ ....and this is exactly what a Low-risk entry looks like. Good Luck!
  • champ: $DG might follow $DLTR, however $FIVE is up too bat and he might spike-out.
  • champ: News mover....$ HOD, small/chasing position at $111.60, only 50 shares.
  • champ: $MS $BAC $ORLY $DG ....I moved off of these positions because of the $ not really working.

    Dollar General ($DG): This stock has been trending sideways for several months but has recently broken out above $240 and now forming a "handle" pattern in a really flat Cup & Handle formation that goes back to July. Resistance is at ...
  • Jazman0013: @DAN $DG $BBY $DKS $ETSY $AMZN Retail observations from the weekend. From the Northern NJ area of Rockaway on Friday it was rather tepid traffic. Met some friends and dreaded the ride. However, traffic wasn’t there. Buddy went to Dicks Sporting goods and mentioned no crowd. I had to go to Costco later and it was also lighter than expected by far. Saturday necessitated a trip to Walmart. Also light. Sunday’s trip to visit family passed Middletown mall, Nanuet Mall and the Woodbury Commons outlet malls in NY. No heavy traffic aside from that heading towards 95. Perhaps people are doing more online shopping. My friend who went to Dicks thought most people are shopping online. Anecdotal for the Black Friday weekend but I found it disturbing. Hopefully it was busier than it looked
  • AboveWater: @DAN $DG $BBY $DKS $ETSY $AMZN - Morning training - could you send out the link again - please??

  • Angdionk: $DG $PANW $PLL all trading near their major MA's $RMBS moving out of a squeeze i posted last week
  • scottrades: My notes: $SPY/$QQQ the bounce is on $UUP Around the 21 EMA $XLE Back above the 650 Day $TAN Running into the MAs $GDX Great volume $TSLA Watch for underperformance $TWTR Congrats Longs $FSLR Sold Half $ENPH Downside reversal $MAXN Closed near the lows $SHLA at the 50 Day $DV Working, tight action $WWE Chart of the Day $DG Basing $LTHM Watch 32.60 $REGN Extended but working $VRTX Working $SRPT Watch 113.70 $PRVA Support at the 100 EMA $ALB Back above the MAs

  • traderbren: $DG - providing a nice 59min. Let's see if there's more gas in the tank to clear the 50d.
  • traderbren: $DG - looking to be priming the pump ahead of earnings on the 25th.

  • scottrades: @Cjauger $DG Nice move off the 50 Day but wish the volume was higher.
  • Cjauger: @scottrades $DG I noticed that. thank you
  • champ: @champ $BJ $COST $GO $DG $DLTR $AMZN $TGT $WMT.....Watch because these these stocks might be nice Inflation plays and they will Also past thought price increases....however #discount-retailers, will always draw the most shoppers.....could line these stocks-up and see which one will outperform, off of these #current price levels....and for me, I don't really care what happened in the past, I already know that.... along with all investors, we only care about the future....and all Investors will be looking for new Entries and or Add-ons....and so will I. However for now, my only swing-position in this sub-sector, is $BJ, at $60.10...up 3.71%. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • Jazman0013: @champ $F $DG $AAPL as long as you don’t leave food about we are okay up here. People have their cars or garage doors ruined for leaving food about. Seldom see raccoon or opposum, more skunk and fox. Bobcats are seldom. Too many coyote. I always carry a sidearm. I’m not too worried about the animals. More the problem people. Even so I don’t expect to have to ever use it. You can forget calling the police. You may not have service and they don’t get to you for well over and hour.
  • roddog101: Anyone taking a stab at $DG trading near the 200 day?
  • RM: @Jazman0013 $F $DG $AAPL I live in Tacoma, Washington near Pudget Sound. My backyard fronts the Chambers creek wilderness area, which is an urban wildlife sanctuary. We have our urban coyotes that come up to feed on the urban cats, small dogs as well as racoons etc. Coyotes adapt well to living around people. I could bag a deer with a baseball bat, there are so many of them and they are oblivious to humans presence. Black bear and cougars are quite common, but mostly east of I-5 which acts as a natural north-south barrier. On occasion one will wander over in our area which creats quite a stir.
  • Jazman0013: $F and $DG… only two green at the end of the day. Even $AAPL finally took a hit. Nice run in it. May go further. Glad I sold off my calls and some common. If we get a decent open tomorrow I will likely be looking to add to hedges and fade it. See what pitch comes in and whether to swing or take a ball…
