MKM Partners maintains a 'Neutral' on Dollar Tree (NASDAQ: DLTR) price target of $51.00 (from $53.00)

Analyst, Patrick McKeever, said, "Dollar Tree had another very good quarter, though same-store sales came in a bit light of expectations (up 4.5% vs. our 5.0% estimate and the Street’s 4.8%) and slowed sequentially, particularly on a two-year-stacked basis.

"We are lowering our 3Q12 same-store sales estimate from 5.0% to 4.0% to reflect the slightly slower trend seen in 2Q12, and we are trimming our EPS estimate from $0.50 to $0.49, up 14% y/y and vs. new guidance of $0.47-$0.51. For 4Q12, we continue to expect a 2.5% comp increase on top of a 7.3% gain last year, though this may be a bit aggressive. For all of FY12, we now look for EPS of $2.50 vs. our prior $2.45."
