On February 23, 2023, Dollar General released its preliminary fourth quarter 2022 and fiscal year 2022 financial results, disclosing that fourth quarter sales and earnings would come in significantly lower than expected due to lower sales and higher inventory damages. On this news, Dollar General’s stock price fell $8.16, or 3.6%, to close at $217.11 per share on February 23, 2023, thereby injuring investors.

Then, on March 16, 2023, Dollar General released its final fourth quarter 2022 and fiscal year 2022 financial results, revealing that the Company’s net sales had risen on 17.9% year-over-year for the quarter, and only 10.6% year-over-year for the full year. The Company blamed the poor results on a “decrease in customer traffic” as an “impact of store closures.” On this news, Dollar General’s stock price fell $6.47, or 3%, to close at $212.09 per share on March 16, 2023.

Further, the Company reported that its EPS were on track to decline by up to 8% year-over-year, not grow by 4% to 6% as previously stated.
