Dollar General's buyback plans are under the microscope

  • A scan of Dollar General's (DG +5%) Q2 report shows the company didn't buy back very many shares since it put out a press release on June 18 updating investors on its repurchases.
  • The pullback over the last few months in buybacks has raised speculation the company is stockpiling cash to make a run at Family Dollar Stores (FDO -0.3%). During the firm's earnings call, execs didn't offer any specific guidance on buybacks for H2 to resolve the issue one way or the other.
