  • 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%. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • traderbren: $DG - working on chewing through the upside to fill the gap at 222.73
  • Jazman0013: $DG still dropping. Most my holdings red. Happy to be heavy in cash.
  • Jazman0013: $DG pulled back to the 50 ema. Look for confirmation bounce. Doubt it is buyable yet. Watching.
  • bRobert: $BIG Daily reversal base Early WEEKLY pinch with move > 20WEEK $60 - $70 potential $100 with WEEKLY breakout Baby steps Bargain store moves in $DG and $DLTR to top of ranges
  • 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…
  • champ: @Jazman0013 $F $DG $AAPL --- $DG is going to report earnings in the Morning, the open was at $231.31 and HOD was at $228.45, however I was got forced out of that Day-trade, because the Markets turned, NP. That turn caused a lot of Damage...
  • champ: @Jazman0013 $F $DG $AAPL ...The play is always the same, could also look for a negative you can Re-load, its always nice, when they give you Time to Re-load,..... .... be ready because Fast-Eddie and his crew are always Ready and Waiting.
  • Jazman0013: @champ $F $DG $AAPL I’m open to whatever it does tomorrow. I can go mostly cash and sit out this chop too. My position in $DG is placeholder. Have owned from $70s.
  • Jazman0013: @champ $F $DG $AAPL let’s knock em dead tomorrow.
  • champ: @Jazman0013 $F $DG $AAPL --- Nice....and I was hanging around back then 2017, 2018 and all the way into Powells rate hikes, that started in October 2019, Yes ..I remember that very well...
  • Pokersmith: @Jazman0013 $F $DG $AAPL Hope that open is a swoosh down and subsequent opposed to a gap up and fade.
  • champ: @Pokersmith $F $DG $AAPL--- Yes...that would be the Play of the Month or maybe even the Year and it will happen, at some point, within the next 3-days, hopefully tomorrow.
  • Jazman0013: @champ $F $DG $AAPL my wife found $DG they open up like dandelions up here in NE Pa. I’m glad she pulled the trigger on it. It was a great pick. Still is!
  • Jazman0013: @Pokersmith $F $DG $AAPL I would prefer that price action as well. These good openings are ripe for fading of late more often than not.
  • champ: @Jazman0013 $F $DG $AAPL ....PA.. .Dr. Oz is in the News up in that area.
  • Jazman0013: @champ $F $DG $AAPL Oh dear Lord… so Oz is.
  • champ: @Jazman0013 $F $DG $AAPL --- The Wizard of OZ, and I have been on that Yellow Brick Road up there before.
  • Pokersmith: @Jazman0013 $F $DG $AAPL "I prefer bobcats and bears to most people " Hear hear 👍👍
  • Jazman0013: @champ $F $DG $AAPL I don’t know what his points of view are but he looks a lot like Willem Defoe. The area has been building up. I prefer bobcats and bears to most people Just a quick read is all you need. Philly is appropriate for him…. That isn’t a compliment. Let him go back.
  • champ: @Jazman0013 $F $DG $AAPL --- I don't either but he was a Heart Surgeon, so I'm guessing that he has Medical-horse sense. ....We also have Bears, Mountain Lions and they protect our pot growers and we see the Bears running around after they have eaten the wrong plants and the Bobcats are real hard to spots/see but when I go fishing, I always see them watching me.
  • champ: @Jazman0013 $F $DG $AAPL ...Two huge turns off of HOD's, on both Monday and Today, many are shell-shocked, and the bases were loaded both times, however like Yogi Berra said,..."It ain't over ..till it's Over", however Champ always says, just wait.. " for the right Pitch "....and stay Focused. LOL
  • Jazman0013: @champ $F $DG $AAPL few bear sightings this year. They come through the yard. Blink and you miss them.
  • champ: @Jazman0013 $F $DG $AAPL ...We get them coming around, but only when they get hungry and they can get scared and if they do, they can cause a lot of damage, don't ever corner any animal, can't leave any doors or sliders open either because even the Raccoons and Possums will come-in and don't block their exit either, I've been in their way before also, good-thing I had a 5-iron in my hand, can't shoot anything because that would really make a mess, if you only injured them, thats the last thing that I would do.
  • wanda1616: $DG smackdown to the 50 news.
  • Pokersmith: @wanda1616 $DG My guess? rotation...but that's just a guess
  • wanda1616: @Pokersmith $DG all retail getting crunched but this is worse.
  • Pokersmith: @wanda1616 $DG More of a lockdown, can't get work type of name...not necessarily a reopening play? Some Funds et al locking in gains ...and calling it a year for this play? Again...Just spit balling here...NP
  • wijimmy: $DLTR .. watching for some bottom picking for L/T .. $DLTR down 5 days in a row after ER .. like all others in sector... $DLTR upgrade... 8/30..JPMorgan Adjusts Dollar Tree PT to $131 From $122, Maintains Overweight Rating... $DLTR, $OLLI, $BIG, $DG, all looking oversold RSI around 30
  • wanda1616: $DG $DLTR $BURL all getting smacked after earnings. all long term winners. lack of guidance, supply chain issues etc. could be some opportunities.
  • wanda1616: @wanda1616 $DG $DLTR $BURL someday these supply chain issues will be resolved just like someday travel will return to normal.
  • wanda1616: @wanda1616 $DG $DLTR $BURL how quickly lumber dropped 60 % from its peak....may be similar situation
  • Jazman0013: Weakness in most my holdings today. Looking to add to $CHWY soon. Reduced $DG
  • champ: $OLLI...what the heck are these guys going to do, and both $DG and $DLTR will be reporting before $OLLI......Could be a pre-set up here...don't really know...
  • woodman: $DG - if you like boringly upward without drama.
  • steve71: @woodman $DG Hey Woodman, long time. The next earnings report cycle may be a challenge for the various iterations of Dollar stores. Their prices are constrained by the name. But they are facing inflation from their suppliers. My only retail play is Target, also a nicely boring chart.
  • woodman: @steve71 $DG - Hey, buddy. Yeah, long time. I hope you've been well. I was put through the washer spin cycle over and over in 2019 and 2020. It was a rough trip, but I'm glad the stains ultimately came out after many cycles. Thanks for your thoughts. I've been able to hold DG without obsessing over it, which is kinda nice. :) But I'll give it more thought as we roll into earnings on 8/26.
  • Aragorn: $DG off an inside month and up weekly is a continuation, this stock is just going and going. Thx to Woodman to put me on this one
