Dollar Tree est and tgt raised to $47 at Wedbush Morgan following strong Q1 results Wedbush Morgan raises their Q2 EPS est to $0.48 from $0.46 (consensus $0.46) and their FY09 EPS to $2.92 from $2.78 (consensus $2.85) following the co`s strong Q1 results. The firm also raises their tgt to $47 from $42. The firm notes that DLTR has proven to be an excellent safe haven during recent challenging times and provided strong returns by successfully adopting strategies to increase their mix of consumables, which has resulted in increased traffic, positive comps, and earnings growth. However, beginning in Q2, the firm believes that DLTR will face tougher comparisons, which should result in a necessary slowing of comp and earnings momentum, and potentially multiple compression as well. As such, the firm believes shares are near fair value, but the firm remains confident that the co will continue to execute its top-line driving strategies, which should help offset the current negative headwinds, as well as operating margin initiatives.
