Editor's Note: Below is a brief excerpt/update on our long Dollar Tree (DLTR) call from our Retail team's morning research note. Shares of DLTR are up around 13% since we published How To Unlock 'Huge' Upside At Dollar Tree, on October 1st, while the S&P 500 has fallen approximately 13%.
Dollar Tree (DLTR) remains one of our top Long Ideas.
With the DLTR Board nomination window having come and gone without a 13D, we are presenting a "Black Book" next Thursday January 10, at 12:30 ET to outline the decision tree from here for both the Board, management, and (increasingly frustrated) shareholders.
When the stock flirted with $80, a lot could be taken on faith about value being unlocked.
Above $90 some more serious questions have to be answered about:
- the trajectory of the base business (including downside support)
- the viability of management's remodel strategy
- changes that could be made by Tad Dickson (new change-agent Board Member who started 2 days ago)
- the change in posturing of key shareholders that can still buck the nomination window in search of more than two Board seats
