(A Top Pick Jan 02/20, Up 22%) He sold it at $267 in mid-December to buy Uber and Comcast instead for the economic reopening. He still likes HD, but sold because the housing boom was well underway. You can buy HD now and make 5-10%. A great company.

Continues to own this. Buys more in the $270 range for clients. Likes the company and its potential to benefit from increasing housing demand. Interest rates are still low and housing stock is aging in the US. There is a need for renovations. Over the longterm, you can start accumulating.

(A Top Pick Jan 29/20, Up 20%) One of the most successful companies he's ever owned. They're raised their operating margins from 11% to 16.5% over the last 10 years which leads to a 50% profit increase. Great managers, but aren't resting on their laurels. Apple is also investing heavily in technology, plus there's the macro view--HD will benefit from home renovation during this pandemic as people move from the cities to suburbs, and people now have excess cash to spend on renovations. This trades in the low-20s in PE.

She continues to like it and has owned it for a number of years. Growth will moderate next year but it benefited from work-from-home. Homes are affordable with low interest rates and people were staying where they are and renovating. The age of the housing stock in the US is over 40 years old. HD-N is investing in their supply chain to increase the efficiency of online ordering. The dividend is attractive. They increase it regularly. (Analysts’ price target is $303.28)

A great long-term hold. They've benefitted big from the stay-at-home trade. The PE is in the mid-20s, so it's not exactly cheap. Headwinds may be tougher going forward, but it's a good core stocks. Wonders if they can repeat 2020 earnings in 2021.

Extremely well managed. Revenues have gone up. Gross margins have grown. Continue to invest in technology and improving stores. DIY trend has helped. Not inexpensive, but has legs to support the valuation in this environment.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Back in August, when HD was trading about 10% higher, we recommended waiting to buy on weakness. We think that time has arrived. Other analysts have also recently upgraded the stock, looking for $315 as a target. Recent earnings grew 6% over the year and the PE is holding around 23x. The trend remains towards home improvement during the pandemic and we think that will continue. It pays a good dividend, backed by a payout ratio of 50%. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $230, looking to achieve the new outlook of $315 -- about 20% upside. Yield 2.28% (Analysts’ price target is $304.37)

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%
