Deutsche Bank Downgrades Family Dollar; Raises PT; Maintains Outlook (FDO)Aug 26, 2013Deutsche Bank reported on Monday that it has cut its rating on discount retailer Family Dollar Stores, Inc. (FDO) . The firm has downgraded FDO from a "Buy" to a "Hold," but has raised the company's price target from $70 to $74. This price target suggests a 2% increase from the stock's current price of $72.28. Analyst Paul Trussell noted that the downgrade was primarily due to FDO's difficulty with same store sales compared to Dollar General (DG) and Dollar Tree (DLTR) . The analyst also said that the company's current outlook already includes an operational upside through 2014. "While we view the latter as a possibility, at current levels it is fairly valued based on fundamentals," Trussell noted. Looking ahead, the firm has maintained its current estimates of $3.78 per share for FY2013 and $4.35 per share for FY2014. Family Dollar shares were mostly flat during premarket trading Monday. The stock is up 14% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of Family Dollar Stores, Inc. (FDO) have a 1.44% yield, based on Friday's closing price of $72.28. Family Dollar Stores, Inc.

Credit Suisse Reports Possible Acquisition of Family Dollar (FDO)Aug 8, 2013Credit Suisse reported today a likely deal between Dollar General (DG) and Family Dollar Stores (FDO) . Analyst Edward Kelly commented that an acquisition of Family Dollar by Dollar General would make "compelling strategic sense," since the two companies combined would create a dominant retailer with a more proactive management style. Kelly also noted that the acquisition could potentially reduce costs and boost revenues. Kelly sees Dollar General paying between $90 and $100 a share for Family dollar, if the deal is approved. This would put FDO's sale price at a 30%-40% premium above its current price. Family Dollar Stores shares traded 1.32% higher during Thursday's session. Year-to-date, the stock is up roughly 10%. The Bottom Line Shares of Family Dollar Stores (FDO) currently yield 1.46% based on Thursday's closing price of $71.27 and its annual payout of $1.04.
