Family Dollar (FDO) and Dollar Tree (DLTR) are on watch after discounter peer Dollar General beats estimates with its Q4 report. Today's report from Dollar General (DG) is another indication that the dollar store group is successfully taking market share away from grocery store chains in food and basics. What to watch: A plan by Wal-Mart to ramp up small-format stores (Express & Neighborhood Market) could be the next hurdle the sector needs to clear.
