  • The Dollar General supposedly hid chronic understaffing, inventory mismanagement, and overcharging customers.
  • Later, missed guidance and lower financial forecasts caused several $DG drops.
Lower-than-expected sales in Q4 2022 led to a stock drop in February, then the next big drop was in June, when Q1 2023 revenue fell $130M below estimates, resulting in a nearly 20% $DG decrease.

In August, poor Q2 2023 results and a revised sales outlook caused a 12% $DG fall. The company blamed this on weak consumer spending and increased theft.

Investors also suspect that the DG's inability to manage inventory and accurately price products resulted in lost customers, decreased sales, regulatory problems and damage to its reputation.
