My shares of DG stock just sold on 11/23/22, the day before Thanksgiving as a result of a "trailing loss" order that I had in place. That means the stock price went down and I was able keep my profits and have it sell automatically, before I lost any money on it.
I can assure you that I will buy this stock back, as soon as it takes an upswing.

This final chart shows you the stock price of Dollar General on 11/23/22 when my "trailing loss" order took effect and sold the stock, so that i was able to keep my profits and not loose any money.
While it did not dip very much per share on that date, the fact that it had gone up almost to it's 12 month high price, I am pleased that it sold for a nice profit from the share price that I purchased it back in May.
By the way, I might add, the only COST I had involved in selling this stock was a 2 cent FINRA fee. That is my total expense for buying and selling this stock, no matter if it is one share or 100 shares.
