NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - Retailers Family Dollar (FDO - Get Report) and Ross Stores (ROST - Get Report) hit 52-week highs on Wednesday.

Family Dollar

"Over the last 18 months, roughly half of the executive team has turned over -- clear evidence to us that a somewhat 'new' Family Dollar is taking root," Guggenheim analysts wrote in an April 10 report. "We believe this, together with improved results, should serve to strengthen sentiment in the name."

Shares of Family Dollar hit a 52-week high Wednesday of $67.13. The stock's 52-week low of $44.42 was set on Aug. 9.

Family Dollar has an estimated price-to-earnings ratio of 15.87X; the average for specialty retailers is 16.27X. For comparison, Dollar Tree (DLTR) has a higher forward P/E of 17.55X.

Fourteen of the 27 analysts who cover Family Dollar rated it hold. Eleven analysts gave the stock a buy rating and two rated it sell.
