A rise in home spending to come HD has run back up, because people have discretionary income they're not spending on restaurants and clothes, because they're stuck at home. He's owned this before. 1980-2007, HD was expanding locations, but since 2009 they have added few. Instead, they are selling higher-margin profits to boost revenues, but the growth rate in this has slowed. That's why he sold.

Likes it. Monumental run over the last 10 years. Really well run. People probably won't do fewer renovations because of the coronavirus. Will continue to be under pressure on market speculation. Long-term, really likes this company.

(A Top Pick Feb 06/19, Up 30%) They've become much more efficient in managing their stores, yet the number of stores remains the same. Operating profit has jumped 11% to 16%. Net profit doubled. Last year's initiatives dampened earnings a bit, but will pay off in 2021.

She would consider buying both. LOW-N brought in a new management team with a lot of self-help initiatives to closed the gap, but HD-N has also been very strong and both are a home-run in the area. The recession just keeps getting pushed out

He is sticking with it. Last year in a period of uncertainty he was certain the housing industry was going to move up and believes it will do so again. Their profit was hit in the short term but it will inflect later, in 2021. He thinks there is good upside in the stock. (Analysts’ price target is $232.17)

This has been an investment for him for many years. They grow sales faster than GDP growth and dividend growth is 25% a year. Not a big dividend however. He likes home builders and the suppliers to home builders. A leading stock in a leading sector, he thinks. A healthy pullback, that he would buy into.

He would continue to hold it. For the last 10 years it has been a steady performer in a pretty bleak retail space. They can not get "Amazoned" -- no one can ship plywood online, he thinks. The cost of deliver will keep Amazon out of this space. It is not cheap at 26 times earnings, but it is well managed.

Still growing. Biggest problem is valuation. Plus, US housing market, which he thinks is rolling over. Not a lot of demand for what HD sells. Buying back their own stock is a risk going forward too.

Nice yield of 2.3%. Trades at 20x earnings. One of the issues is housing growth, which has moderated in the US. Concentrating on customer service, improving supply chain, better merchandise, reducing costs. Doing a very good job of all this, which will continue to drive the stock. Increasing dividend and buying back shares. He just hasn't found the right entry point.
