June 10, 2014


Save at Trade
Family Dollar Stores Inc. was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 13% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent uptrend for the company as the stock is now up more than 22% since May 20.

The company has seen no estimate revision over the past 30 days and the Zacks Consensus Estimate has not been in a trend either. Yesterday’s jump is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Family Dollar Stores currently has a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

However, some better-ranked stocks in the retail-wholesale sector include Aaron's, Inc. (AAN - Snapshot Report), Build-A-Bear Workshop Inc. (BBW - Snapshot Report) and Buffalo Wild Wings Inc. (BWLD - Analyst Report). All of these sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
