Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Dollar Tree as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and increase in net income. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • DLTR's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 4.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 116.7%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • The company, on the basis of net income growth from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly outperformed against the S&P 500 and exceeded that of the Multiline Retail industry average. The net income increased by 10.9% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $206.50 million to $229.00 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 54.44% to $831.40 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, DOLLAR TREE INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -49.84%.
  • DOLLAR TREE INC' earnings per share from the most recent quarter came in slightly below the year earlier quarter. The company has suffered a declining pattern of earnings per share over the past two years. However, we anticipate this trend to reverse over the coming year. During the past fiscal year, DOLLAR TREE INC reported lower earnings of $1.20 versus $2.90 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.65 versus $1.20).
  • After a year of stock price fluctuations, the net result is that DLTR's price has not changed very much. Although its weak earnings growth may have played a role in this flat result, don't lose sight of the fact that the performance of the overall market, as measured by the S&P 500 Index, was essentially similar. Despite the decline in its share price over the last year, this stock is still more expensive (when compared to its current earnings) than most other companies in its industry. We feel, however, that other strengths this company displays compensate for this.
