Family Dollar (FDO) and Dollar Tree (DLTR) are both excellent picks considering the state of the economy. Everyone is looking to save a buck here and there so sales at discount stores like these are likely to be headed upward. Family Dollar (FDO) is paying out a .54 annual dividend, and is quoted just above $30. While Dollar Tree (DLTR) is closer to $50, with no dividends. Both would be a good medium pick, not too conservative, and not too risky.
