12:34 EDTFDO, WMT, DG, DLTRFamily Dollar rallies after analyst talks merits of Wal-Mart buyout
Acquiring Family Dollar (FDO) could be worthwhile for Wal-Mart (WMT), a Credit Suisse analyst indicated in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: Wal-Mart has suggested that it needs to open more small stores in the U.S., and developing a "small store strategy" will be a top priority for the retail giant's new CEO, Doug McMillon, Credit Suisse analyst Michael Exstein wrote in a note to investors earlier today. The "most logical way" for Wal-Mart to meet this goal may be by buying Family Dollar (FDO), Exstein stated. Wal-Mart has lower geographic overlap with Family Dollar than with Dollar General (DG) and Dollar Tree (DLTR), the analyst reported. As a result, the Federal Trade Commission may be more likely to approve a Wal-Mart-Family Dollar combination than an acquisition of either of the other two companies by Wal-Mart, the analyst stated. Wal-Mart could buy Family Dollar for $78-$82 per share and still make the deal immediately accretive, wrote the analyst. He kept an $87 price target and Outperform rating on Wal-Mart. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Family Dollar is not currently holding any talks about selling itself, CNBC's David Faber reported this morning following Exsteinís note. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Family Dollar climbed 1.9% to $65.80, while Wal-Mart fell 0.8% to $74.75.

11:44 EDTWMTGameStop weakness on Wal-Mart news a buying opportunity, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray believes the impact of Wal-Mart (WMT) on GameStop's (GME) used business will be immaterial and views today's pullback as a buying opportunity. Piper notes that the entrance of Wal-Mart into any market should not be taken lightly, but other retailers have tried and failed before to enter the used game business and that Wal-Mart's entry actually refutes the bear thesis on GameStop that the used game business is not attractive. The firm maintains its Overweight rating and $53 price target on GameStop.
