Shares of Dollar Tree (DLTR -6.9%) dive after the company sets guidance at the low end of the expected range while presenting at an investor conference. Reading between the lines from the comments of execs, it appears the company is starting to run out of growth drivers. (webcast)

    Bought Oct puts today for a fast trade and did well.
    This is pretty sad story here!

    Don't quite get the DLTR guidance lowering. Just listened to the web-cast and they were talking about positive growth more than anything!

     

    Plan to have 7000 stores still underway and going as planed. Real estate prospects good and evaluating NYC. Profits are up and looking good forward.

     

    Here is the web-cast link;

    it seems that these days wall st reacts negatively if a male company ceo wears white sox with a blue suit! i see dollar tree to be a solid, money-making company and will continue to be extremely profitable as long as the economy remains such as it is. my take on what to do now: BUY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN AT THIS BARGAIN PRICE.

    I agree with you on the company, but their chiefs need to learn how to speak with analysts!

     

    “Never use the word lower or reduce in a positive conversation”

     

    Someone needs to wake these jerks up, unless they are driving it down for their share buyback program still going on.

     

    I have a truckload of Feb. Calls that I’m now getting crushed on thanks to their manor of communication. Therefore, I bought more Puts this morning and made another tidy profit.

     

    I certainly hope this is the bottom, they make too much money for it not to be and the 7000 store expansion plan is going along as planned.

    Running out of growth drivers?! Yeah, I don't think so: internet case-pack sales via Dollar Tree Direct; Deal$ stores finally beginning to take off; stores in Canada; new distribution center building in the Northeast. Not to mention: lower economy=more customers; higher gas prices=shorter shopping trips so can fit more stores in an area; more items available every day that they cans ell for $1.00. I suspect what they were trying to rein in is the comp sales estimates, which are almost always too high. This is an extremely well-run company, highly profitable, and not slowing down!
