TheStreet’s Action Alerts PLUS Portfolio Manager Jim Cramer awaits earnings from Dollar Tree (DLTR), which are released before the markets open on Tuesday. Analysts expect the Chesapeake, VA-based discount retailer to post fourth quarter earnings per share of $1.07 with revenue of $5.41 billion. During the same quarter a year ago, the company posted net income of $1.16 a share on sales of $2.48 billion. ‘The value component is doing very well,’ Cramer said. ‘I continue to think that’s the segment you want to be in. I like what’s happened to Dollar Tree in the last three months with Family Dollar.’ Shares of Dollar Tree rose 7.8% over the past three months and 5.5% since the start of the year. The broad S&P 500 lost 4.4% year-to-date. Last summer, the Dollar Tree’s roughly $9 billion acquisition of rival Family Dollar closed, after the combined company appeased regulators by shedding more than 300 Family Dollar locations in 35 states.
