DON'T BUY
Home Depot
Growth companies have traded off. Highly tied to housing and renovations, needs a healthy consumer. Likes the space, prefers LOW. LOW catching up to profitability and efficiency of HD.

A great franchise with a fine balance sheet and managers, though he isn't sure about their last quarter. Own for the long term.

He bought more of this. He remains under-invested and holding a lot of cash, but he can't pass up opportunities. HD's valuation has come down a lot (unlike megatechs like Amazon).

DON'T BUY
Home Depot
One of the best performers in the Dow Q3 They reported truly strong numbers in their last quarter. It's holding up because it's geared to professional contractors who do a lot of renovations, as opposed to regular consumers. Tough to recommend this, though, because higher interest rates will limit construction.

Home Depot
She's long both names, but their margins are getting squeezed. It's not an ideal place to be now. The backdrop are rising mortgage and interest rates. Mortgage rates just hit 7%.

WATCH
Home Depot
It keeps putting up solid numbers despite higher interest rates and fears of a weakening consumer. Last month, their quarter beat and shares climbed 4% on the news. But since then it has fallen 15% along with this market. Watch.

TOP PICK
Home Depot
Increases dividend annually around February. Good grower. Really well run. Somewhat immune from housing slowdown, because if you can't afford to move, you renovate. Great resilience in the last few years. When on sale, tuck it in your portfolio, and it's on sale now. Yield is 2.77% with good growth. (Analysts’ price target is $356.23)

WAIT
Home Depot
HD vs. LOW Not sure you want to own either right now. For example, HD fell markedly yesterday with the inflation print. Reiterated 3% sales growth guidance, solid revenue, but higher interest rates are going to hurt. 18x 2023 earnings, only growing at 6.5%. Don't add here. Go for names that benefit from higher rates.

You gotta wait it out, just like the market. Don't sell now--the price is wrong.

BUY

HD reports Tuesday. Pro contractors use HD and consumers shop at Lowes. So, own HD and not Lowes, because the contractors are doing better than consumers now.

COMMENT
Home Depot
He sold it to buy Lowes. HD's report today signals that the consumer is "okay." The dire predictions of June have not come to pass, based on economic data in July (weaker inflation).

PAST TOP PICK
Home Depot
(A Top Pick Jun 16/21, Down 4%) Still owns it. Now below $300 you can add/buy. Home prices are rising over time and the home inventory is getting older. US homes are getting older, so need renovation. Also, HD has focused on their pro customer to easily buy online. Pros sales were strong last quarter. HD bought a maintenance and repair company to do maintenance for hotels and the commercial market--a new growth area.
