It's been buying back stock, so they don't have any book value. This is not a solid mattress to lie on. Fair market value is about 53% lower than the current price. If we're shifting away from growth to value, this isn't the one to buy.

It has done very well and trades at 24 time earnings. The US housing market has helped it a lot. They did a good job of growing their renovation business and they are shareholder friendly. They have improved a lot and gained market share. They should continue to do well.

HD vs. Lowes He's come close to buying HD in the past. It pays a 2.1% yield vs. Lowes' 1.3%, and HD boasts better metrics elsewhere. Key point it that scale matters in this business, and the 3x bigger HD enjoys a size advantage and has a wider moat (can get better pricing and service from suppliers). He picks HD.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly HD reported earnings today and it met all benchmarks. The stock is retracing a bit -- perhaps selling on fact -- as many stocks have been doing lately. We like the continuation of do-it-yourself projects during the pandemic. Speaking from recent personal experience, many of their products are hard to find on the shelves. EPS of $4.02 beat expectations by $0.34 per share. The yield is attractive and with a payout of only 55% of cash flow, could be well positioned for another increase -- as it has done for the past 11 years. We would look for a pullback to $265 to buy on weakness. Yield 2.08%

Long been a favourite pick. They've grown their dividend growing 25%/year over the last 5 years. Are growing same-store sales 2x the rate of GDP. Consumers have some cash to spend near-term, thanks to stimulus. Also, people can't travel, but are doing home improvements. Some weakness in selling to professional contractors, but home consumers have made up for that likely at a higher margin. (Analysts’ price target is $257.25)

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.

People, if they stay home, will renovate. Or if the home-buying market improves (which he expects sooner than later), HD will also benefit. He's a long time holder of HD and happy.

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.

One of the largest home improvement dealers and a play on the health of the US housing market and low interest rates. Household formation is still increasing and there will always be a need for home repairs. Yield 2.22% (Analysts’ price target is $240.59)

(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
