Jefferies analyst Corey Tarlowe reiterated a Buy rating and $260.00 price target on Dollar General (NYSE: DG) on the belief that the company's current operational initiatives position it for continued share gains, top-line growth, and margin expansion over the LT. Near term, the company is likely to report upside to consensus with the upcoming 4Q print. This comes as the company takes steps to find a successor to the company's CEO.

The analyst stated "We recommend that investors buy DG shares now. DG is a high-quality, well-managed business with countercyclical traits that is likely to continue gaining share. While there has been a recent spotlight on wages, we believe the company is well-positioned to mitigate potential wage-related headwinds."
