Stocks are too psychologically driven. I'd be interested to know the comparative SALES information.

Target revenues and earnings are up through the year. Family Dollar's revenues up slightly, earnings flat.

Thanks for a great blog Mark!

Anecdotal, to be sure, but in my own experience, traffic, customer counts, and presumably sales, are way up at dollar stores in my area, especially in the last three months.

Note: Family Dollar appears to not have stores in my area.
