GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

DOLLAR GENERAL SHAREHOLDER ALERT BY FORMER LOUISIANA ATTORNEY GENERAL: KAHN SWICK & FOTI, LLC REMINDS INVESTORS WITH LOSSES IN EXCESS OF $100,000 of Lead Plaintiff Deadline in Class Action Lawsuit Against Dollar General Corporation - (DG)

NEW ORLEANS, La., March 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF") and KSF partner, the former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., reminds investors that they have until March 20, 2017 to file lead plaintiff applications in a securities class action lawsuit against Dollar General Corporation (:DG), if they purchased the Company’s securities between March 10, 2016 and November 30, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”). The action is pending in United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee. 
What You May Do If you purchased securities of Dollar General and would like to discuss your legal rights and how this case might affect you and your right to recover for your economic loss, you may, without obligation or cost to you, call toll-free at 1-877-515-1850 or email KSF Managing Partner Lewis Kahn ([email protected]). If you wish to serve as a lead plaintiff in this class action, you must petition the Court by March 20, 2017. About the Lawsuit Dollar General and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.  On August 25, 2016, Dollar General announced disappointing second quarter 2016 financial and operational results caused by “a reduction in both SNAP participation rates and benefit levels.”   Then, on December 1, 2016, Dollar General announced third quarter 2016 financial and operational results that included a reduction in same-store sales.  The Company cited reductions in SNAP benefits as a major contributor of the disappointing results, and admitted that the benefit reductions “affect[] about 56% of our store base.” On this news, the price of Dollar General’s shares plummeted.

Dollar General Investor Reminder: Hagens Berman Reminds Dollar General Investors of March 20, 2017 Lead Plaintiff Deadline

SAN FRANCISCO, March 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP reminds investors in Dollar General Corporation (:DG) of the March 20, 2017 Lead Plaintiff deadline in the pending securities class action.
If you purchased or otherwise acquired securities of DG between March 10, 2016 and November 30, 2016 and suffered over $50,000 in losses contact Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP.  For more information visit: https://www.hbsslaw.com/cases/DG or contact Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm’s investigation, by calling 510-725-3000 or emailing [email protected]. On March 10, 2016, in response to a securities analyst’s question about what the federal food stamp benefits program (also known as “SNAP”) revenues meant for DG, its Chief Executive Officer Todd J. Visos responded in part “SNAP for us is approximately 5% of our sales.  So it really has – it’s not a huge piece of the business”. Nonetheless, on December 1, 2016, DG surprised investors when it reported disappointing fiscal third quarter 2016 results and attributed the surprise in part to SNAP revenues affecting “about 56% of our store base”. This news drove the price of DG shares down nearly 5% to close at $73.48 per share that day. “Our investigation into this matter includes the truth of the CEO’s statement that SNAP revenues were not a huge piece of the business,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein. Whistleblowers: Persons with non-public information regarding DG should consider their options to help in the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program.  Under the new SEC whistleblower program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.  For more information, call Reed Kathrein at 510-725-3000 or email [email protected].
