Dollar General (DG) Stock Climbs After Moody's Sets Positive Rating

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Dollar General (DG - Get Report) are up by 1.44% to $66.05 in afternoon trading on Thursday, after the retailer's rating outlook was set to "positive" by Moody's (MCO) today.

The firm also rated Dollar General's newly proposed offering of $500 million senior unsecured notes maturing 2025 at an investment grade of Baa3.

"The change in outlook to positive is a result on the company's gross margin expansion and continued same store sales growth resulting in increasing profitability and improvement in credit metrics", said Moody's Senior Analyst Mickey Chadha.
