We rate Dollar General (DG) and “A-” due to its low payout ratio, high cash flow growth, high dividend coverage ratio, and reliability. The yield is a low 0.64% but the total return above 20% annually makes up for it! The debt-to-equity ratio at 1.8 is troubling, but perhaps offset by a low beta of 0.5. I would reckon that low price discount stores will be important to our economy (and good investments) for a long time to come!

What are your thoughts, other than the image being way too big?
