15:06 EDTSTZConstellation Brands technical comments before earnings
The stock has been on a rapid rise since the start of the year, trading up 20%. Concerns have begun to emerge about share valuation, but that has not stopped the breakout in price that began in mid-2012 from gaining momentum. With price close to the life high at $120.24, there is little in the way of overhead resistance. A move to the $125 to $130 area would seem quite probable on strong news or outlook, using price channel projection as a guide. This technical move would fit largely with analyst price targets according to Thomson/First Call. The $125 area is the median price target, with the mean at $120.53 and the high at $137. The low target at $82 is something of an outlier, but is still above the 52-week low at $76.26. If the news were a disappointment, given the extension in valuation and the price run-up, there could be a larger than normal correction in price. First support would be at the 50-day moving average at $114.84. If that moving average were broken, next support would be at $109.91 and then at $100.77. In view of the long-term trend, it would take a move down to and below the 50-week moving average at $96.10 to break the long-term uptrend. Each touch of that average has been an initiation point for longs in the last two years.

08:09 EDTFDOFamily Dollar says sales trends in March 'rebounded nicely'
"We continue to see tangible benefits from the investments we have made to strengthen our value proposition for customers. Our comparable store sales and customer traffic trends are improving, and we are beginning to see stabilization in key categories. While our trends in late-February were adversely impacted by severe winter weather, our sales trends in March rebounded nicely, reflecting both improved traffic trends and the benefit of an earlier Easter,” said Howard R. Levine, Chairman and CEO. “We are excited about the pending merger with Dollar Tree, and our teams are working to ensure a successful integration.”
08:05 EDTFDOFamily Dollar says not providing guidance
On January 22, Family Dollar (FDO) stockholders adopted the merger agreement with Dollar Tree (DLTR). The completion of the merger remains subject to Federal Trade Commission clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, and other closing conditions. Dollar Tree, with support from Family Dollar, is continuing to work with the FTC to obtain clearance under the HSR Act, including in connection with arranging for divestitures. Dollar Tree has informed Family Dollar that Dollar Tree intends to close the merger by the end of May 2015. In light of the pending transaction, the company has not provided earnings guidance for fiscal 2015 and will not hold a conference call to discuss its second quarter results.

16:38 EDTFDODollar Tree discloses update on FTC review process of Family Dollar acquisition
Dollar Tree (DLTR) disclosed in a regulatory filing, the following update on the Federal Trade Commission’s review process of the company’s pending acquisition of Family Dollar Stores (FDO). As of April 1, the FTC’s staff has substantially completed its review and identified approximately 340 stores for divestiture, representing approximately $47.4M of operating income. The company expects that all or almost all of the stores that will be divested will be Family Dollar stores. The company continues to make progress with divestiture buyers and has received multiple indications of interest from buyers, each of whom intend to operate these divested locations as dollar stores to address the FTC's concerns. The company is working to finalize divestiture agreements with the selected bidders in April 2015 and in parallel to secure FTC approval. The company intends to close the proposed merger in May, but this timing is subject to certain factors beyond the company’s control, including FTC approval.
