Top 5 Companies in the General Merchandise Stores Industry With the Highest P/E Ratio (DLTR, FRED, DG, FDO, TGT)

Feb 12, 2013 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX) -- Below are the three companies in the General Merchandise Stores industry with the highest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.Dollar Tree ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 17.66. Following is Fred's with a a P/E ratio of 16.85. Dollar General ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 16.17.

Family Dollar Stores follows with a a P/E ratio of 15.58, and Target rounds out the top five with a a P/E ratio of 14.08.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Dollar Tree on June 28th, 2012 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $51.56. Since that call, shares of Dollar Tree have fallen 20.4%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
