Dollar stores generally are seeing increased competition (from the likes of Walmart), rising costs, and worries about declining same store sales--a possible impact of the fiscal cliff.

They were hot stocks for a while, but the glory days seem to be waning. Can they pull another rabbit out of the hat? In my area, dollar stores are opening everywhere. They can't continue to grow with new stores.

Looks like the growth curve is destined to flatten.

I hope that is not the case because I bought a small chunk of each while they were down. I think plenty of future growth with more and more of the population living on the edge so to speak.

A 4% move in a stock, up or down, is NOTHING

Yahoo Finance gives me a list of percentage change from open every day for 100 stocks.

In a typical day, most stocks change by 1% or less.

Only abt 3% of stocks change by 4% or more in a typical day.

I use the list to look for significant news for stocks of interest.

Paul,

Yahoo Finance gives me a list of percentage change from open every day for 100 stocks.

I use Yahoo's Price % Gainers and Losers, but those are only 20 stocks each. Where do they list the 100?

Ralph

Your personal portfolio can contain up to 100, and will do instant % change from open. You then sort the column.
