“DollarTree (DLTR) – Exited Long

After multiple quarters of lackluster execution and excuses from management, it became clear that thesis drift (hoping for fresh activist involvement – not central to our original long thesis) was setting in. Further, a big part our DLTR thesis was expected outperformance (of the business and stock) during times of economic stress. Given questionable execution in recent years, we are no longer confident that such outperformance is a given.”
