$CASY MAJOR CHANGES AT CASEY'S STORES, BREAKOUT POTENTIAL

There has been a lot of very positive changes at NASDAQ:CASY in the past few weeks, the updated digital store and online ordering system now offers easier ordering, more customisation and faster carryout which is hoped to improve efficiency and boost sales. More recently Casey's have appointed former IHOP CEO Darren Rebelez to the CEO role, he brings 25 years of business leadership experience.
H.LYNN Horak commented
β€œDarren brings a remarkable combination of leadership experience in the convenience store, fuel and restaurant industries, and he has an impressive track record of driving performance and innovation. We have enjoyed getting to know Darren through our succession planning process and are confident that he will build on Casey’s strong heritage of customer service, employee development, giving back to our communities, and our focus on creating sustainable growth and profitability.”

From a technical perspective the stock is looking like a breakout candidate, currently forming a ascending triangle and holding support above all MA'S, all the indicators are also in tension and signal a substantial move ahead, hopefully that is a break up not down. $upside alert for $137 and breakdown short alert on $128

With all the buying and selling currently occurring in the service station industry it would seem there could be a drag on CASY's asset values. The reason I say that is because several large companies are dumping large strings of stations. Because of the fire sale I would expect to see lower values. But there is a silver lining. Many stations are being shuttered which means less competition.

Counterfeiter targets Casey's

SIOUX FALLS – Federal grand jurors in Sioux Falls have filed a new indictment against two Luverne, Minn., men for passing counterfeit $100 bills in South Dakota and Minnesota.

Twenty-nine-year-old Dennis Prater and 33-year-old Terrance Schaffer pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy and passing counterfeit United States currency.

According to the indictment, Prater passed or tried to pass fake $100 bills at a Casey’s convenience store in Worthingon, Minn., and at a Taco Bell, Burger King, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Footlocker in Sioux Falls.

Schaffer is accused of using bogus bills at a Taco Bell and Burger King in Sioux Falls and a Kum & Go convenience store in Adrian, Minn.

The alleged transactions all happened in February.

4 Dividend Stocks Showing You the Money

(((SCROLL DOWN FOR CASY MENTION)))

By Rick Aristotle Munarriz
June 22, 2009 | Comments (1)

Stock Advisor

Not every company is slashing its dividend these days. Some of the market's better performers are easing up on their purse strings and sending more money out to their shareholders.

Readers of the Income Investor newsletter service can appreciate that kind of thinking. So let's take a closer look at four of the companies that inched their payouts higher over the past few days.

Let's start with Del Monte Foods (NYSE: DLM). The food giant is feeding its investors cash by bumping up its quarterly dividend by 25% to $0.05 a share. Faith in its cash-flow trends and the recent divestiture of its StarKist brand are giving Del Monte the confidence to come through with the upgrade.

Medtronic (Nasdaq: MDT) is also looking healthy. The medical-products company is improving its quarterly distributions by 9% to $0.205 a share. Medtronic shareholders are probably used to this by now. The company has delivered chunkier disbursements through 23 consecutive years of yield increases.

Then we have Casey's General Stores (Nasdaq: CASY). The retailer is holding up well, as shoppers turn to bargain havens, and the welcome trend is giving Casey's the leeway to boost its payouts by 13% to $0.085 a share.

Finally, we have John Wiley & Sons (NYSE: JW-A) printing fatter dividend checks. The "knowledge for generations" publisher is delivering an 8% increase. Investors will now be getting $0.14 a share every three months. John Wiley & Sons has now increased its rate in each of the past 16 years.

Some of these moves may not seem like much, but consider the less savory moves that took place in recent days:

* First Defiance Financial (Nasdaq: FDEF) and S&T Bancorp (Nasdaq: STBA) are the latest banking specialists to slash their yields. The two companies roughly halved their dividends.
* Biotech-leaning REIT BioMed Realty's (NYSE: BMR) new quarterly rate of $0.11 a share is just a third of its earlier disbursements.

I like this part...

Archrival the Pantry (Nasdaq:PTRY) reported similar sales and earnings results during its most recent quarter, but its stock has struggled so far this year compared to the market and Casey's. Casey's is also way less leveraged than the Pantry, which will work in its favor as long as economic growth trends remain difficult.

Casey's General Stores (Nasdaq:CASY) operates a modest but growing amount of convenience stores, primarily throughout the Midwest. Recent sales trends have been difficult, but Casey's continues to demonstrate it can, primarily due to its food sales, grow profits in what is a challenging business even in the best of economic times.

Falling Sales
Sales fell 27% as challenging economy took its toll on the top line, but trends in key categories held up. Gasoline, which makes up the bulk of sales yet sells for razor-thin margins, posted same-store gallons-sold growth of 1.2% on average margins of 12 cents. Moving up the profitability chain, grocery and related merchandise sales reported a same-store sales increase of 8% and average margin of 32.9%, while prepared food and fountain products saw positive comps of 7.2% and impressive margins of 62.7%. (Learn what determines the price you pay at the pump in our article, What Determines Gas Prices?)

Rising Costs
Operating expenses increased 7.1% during the quarter, which was primarily attributed to a one-time litigation charge. The end result was a slight improvement in earnings to 31 cents per diluted share that came in ahead of analyst projections. Full-year trends were similar, with decent sales results and modest expense growth allowing Casey's to eke out a one cent earnings growth to $1.69 per diluted share.

Still Growing and Relatively Strong
Management stopped short of offering specific earnings guidance, but analysts currently project $1.73 in coming full-year earnings, which would again represent modest growth from the just completed fiscal year. Guidance from the company pertained to its three sales categories, including 2% gasoline comps and high single-digit comps in the higher-margin grocery and prepared food products.

Archrival the Pantry (Nasdaq:PTRY) reported similar sales and earnings results during its most recent quarter, but its stock has struggled so far this year compared to the market and Casey's. Casey's is also way less leveraged than the Pantry, which will work in its favor as long as economic growth trends remain difficult.

Bottom Line
Despite the near-term top line turbulence, Casey's has proven adept at operating in a tough business. A number of major integrated oil firms have been throwing in the towel on operating convenience stores. Last June, Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) announced it was selling more than 800 company-owned stores, with similar moves from BP plc (NYSE:BP) and Royal Dutch Shell plc (NYSE:RDS.B). That's good news for Casey's and leaves it room to build on its current store base of nearly 1,500 stores.

Casey’s Reports Record Year and Remains Optimistic for Fiscal 2010

Casey’s General Stores, Inc. (Nasdaq: CASY) today reported earnings for the fourth quarter and the fiscal year ended April 30, 2009. For the quarter, basic earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.31 compared to $0.28 a year ago. For the year, basic earnings per share were $1.69, up from $1.68 in fiscal 2008. The results include a $9.1 million pre-tax charge related to the previously disclosed settlement of two wage and hour lawsuits. Without the effect of the settlement, earnings would have been approximately $1.80 for the year. “Despite this charge and a very challenging economy, we were able to achieve record earnings and we anticipate continuing our strong performance in fiscal 2010,” said President and CEO Robert J. Myers.

Gasoline—Casey’s annual goal in fiscal 2009 was to increase same-store gasoline gallons sold 2% with an average margin of 10.8 cents per gallon. For the year, same-store gallons were up 1% with an average margin of 12.9 cents per gallon. “The high retail price environment held same-store gallons in check during the first half of the fiscal year,” said Myers. “However, same-store gallons improved during the second half of the year as retail prices declined.” Same-store gallons sold were up 1.2% for the fourth quarter with an average margin of 12.1 cents.

Grocery and Other Merchandise—The Company’s goal was to increase same-store sales 7% with an average margin of 33.2%. For the fiscal year, same-store sales rose 5.9% with an average margin of 33.5%; up 40 basis points from a year ago. Gains made in the cigarette area and the continued popularity of high-margin beverages were significant contributors to the growth. “We are pleased with this category’s performance over the past several years and remain encouraged about future growth opportunities,” stated Myers. For the quarter, same-store sales increased 8% with an average margin of 32.9%.

Prepared Food and Fountain—Casey’s annual goal was to increase same-store sales 6.8% with a margin of 61.2%. Same-store sales increased 9.1% during fiscal 2009, with an average margin of 61.4%. “The Company benefited from strategic price increases implemented early in the year and was successful in negotiating a forward buy that locked in our cheese cost through October 2009,” said Myers. “In fiscal 2010 we intend to maintain the momentum by expanding our coffee and fountain selections, introducing new menu items and continuing the roll-out of our made-to-order sub sandwich program.” Total sales for the year were up 11.2% to $335.6 million. Same-store sales in the fourth quarter rose 7.2%, with a margin of 62.7%; up 180 basis points from the fourth quarter a year ago.

Operating Expenses—For the fiscal year, operating expenses increased 6.2%. In the fourth quarter, operating expenses were up 7.1%. Without the effect of the lawsuit settlement, operating expenses would have been up only 4.3% for the year and down 0.6% in the quarter. “Lower fuel prices during the second half of the year helped reduce our transportation costs and credit card fees,” stated Myers.

Expansion—The goal for fiscal 2009 was to increase the total number of stores 4%. For the year, the Company increased the store count by approximately 2%, with 16 new store constructions and 16 acquired stores. “In addition to unit growth, we continue to replace and remodel existing locations to meet the changing needs of our customers,” stated Myers. “During fiscal 2009 we replaced 14 stores and completed 2 remodels utilizing the features of our new store design.”

Fiscal 2010 Goals—Myers shared four corporate performance goals for fiscal 2010:

* Increase same-store gasoline gallons sold 2% with an average margin of 11 cents per gallon.

* Increase same-store grocery and other merchandise sales 8.9% with an average margin of 33.9%.

* Increase same-store prepared food and fountain sales 7.5% with an average margin of 62%.

* Increase the total number of stores by 4%.

Dividends—At its June meeting, the Board of Directors increased the quarterly dividend to $0.085 per share. The dividend is payable August 17, 2009 to shareholders of record on August 3, 2009.

Gas prices are higher than they were several weeks ago but Casey has seen worse. This company has been around for years. They were there in the 70's and early 80's during the gas pump craziness and, of course, they lived through the 2008 spike. This company takes a lickin' but...well, you know the rest!

This stock doesn't move much - pretty safe investment imho. The company pays a healthy dividend each quarter. The dividend has been steadily rising - most recently .075/sh Apr09. Not a bad long-term investment imho.

Welcome to the CASY board. We welcome all comments, good and bad. For those unfamiliar with CASY please check the iBox. I have shopped at CASY many times and have always been impressed by the cleanliness, quality, service and location. I have been to several locations within the state of Iowa. If you have not filled up at a Casey I would strongly recommend it.
