USA: Dollar stores seen benefiting from OT rule challenge
Credit Suisse thinks the dollar store sector could benefit if the legal challenge to extending overtime pay benefits to workers making up to $47K holds up.
“Dollar stores would have been most heavily impacted by the new overtime rule given the sheer number of stores they operate and their unique low-cost labor model,” reads the CS note.
“With only two to three employees per store typically working at any given time, store managers comprise a significant percentage of store labor and generally work heavy overtime.”
Beyond Dollar General (DG +0.6%) and Dollar Tree (DLTR +0.1%) — a list of companies that could benefit from the OT rules staying the same includes Five Below (FIVE -1.6%), Big Lots (BIG -0.5%) Fred’s (FRED-1.2%) and Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Holdings (OLLI -0.2%).
