BUY
Growth companies have traded off. Highly tied to housing and renovations, needs a healthy consumer. Likes the space. LOW catching up to profitability and efficiency of HD, operating margins have gone up 60% in last 8-10 years, stole HD playbook. Better opportunity, less risk, growth is as good as HD.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly We reiterate this home improvement retailer as a TOP PICK. Recently reported earnings beat expectations as cash reserves grew, while shares were aggressively bought back. It trades at 20x earnings, compared to peers at 35x. It pays a good dividend, that has grown for over 60 consecutive years, that is backed by a payout ratio under 30% of cash flow. We recommend trailing up the stop-loss (from $180) to $187, looking to achieve $238 -- over 17% upside potential. Yield 4.2% (Analysts’ price target is $237.28)

BUY
Surprised that they sold the Canadian division, and they took a big markdown, but remember that was a small piece of their business. They're increasing margins from 10-15%, so he bought them. Management is doing the right things. Highly profitable. The CEO used to be a senior exec at Home Depot and is following their playbook. LOW has become very efficient.

HOLD
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%.

BUY
Lowes trades at a discount in terms of PE, while Home Depot is at a slight premium. He likes Lowes for their commitment to digital-commerce and customer loyalty.

LOW vs. HD Not sure you want to own either right now. For example, HD fell markedly yesterday with the inflation print. Don't add here. Go for names that benefit from higher rates.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Aug 18/21, Up 8%) It's well-managed. They're expanding margins. In this sector, transactions were down, but profits were up, because the average price is up. In this case, inflation can be your friend. He expects good things tomorrow when they report.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly This dividend Aristocrat trades at 16x earnings compared to peers at 33x. It has increased dividends for 48 consecutive years and boasts a payout ratio under 35% of cash flow. An aging home inventory suggests future home improvement demand should be sustained, even during a market down turn. We recommend a stop loss at $172, looking to achieve $238 -- upside potential over 21%. Yield 2.11% (Analysts’ price target is $237.53)

TOP PICK
Trading off on fear that Fed will extinguish economic expansion. Very well managed. Increased guidance. Increasing margins steadily. Operating margins grew from 10% to almost 14%, and have a ways to go. Outperforming HD. Yield is 1.61%. (Analysts’ price target is $275.08)

HOLD
The CEO is doing a good job and we're about to go into the spring growing season. They also do gardening and renovation and not just home-building.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Mar 19/21, Up 25%) Little brother of HD, and following the HD playbook. Rising margins, latest quarter was great. Since he switched out of HD, it's up 20%, whereas LOW is up 33%.

It just reported a solid beat and nice forecast. The future looks great with rising margins.

Don't fear a shutdown, but a slowdown due to the new Omicron variant. Don't fear a shutdown, but a slowdown due to the new Omicron variant. Lowes as well as Home Depot and Tractor Supply reported good earnings. The group will benefit from a slowdown. Lowes was slow to run up vs. these peers, and is still cheaper than HD
