BUY

It reports Tuesday. Home Depot reported a panned quarter, but later the stock rose, as he expected. HD and LOW tend to see shares get hit, then come back. HD said that their DIY reno customers are doing well, and LOW attracts more of this DIY business. He expects LOW stock to break through.

DON'T BUY

Share rose 3.2% on a simple upgrade from hold to buy. That's overdone and he's suspicious of today's rally. A sign of market frothiness.

Has since sold shares. Waiting for shares to fall before buying again. Concerns over consumer spending a point of worry. If recession occurs, will impact consumers first. Overall, a strong business, so will buy again at another time.

WATCH

Reports tomorrow. Shares up only 3% this year. Home Depot's report gives him hope here. Unlike HD, Lowes relies more on DIYers in home renos (the pros use HD more), which is a plus.

BUY
Question about Home Depot

The homebuilder sector has been hurt by higher interest rates as the consumer shows some cracks in spending. Employment is holding up for now, so maybe the consumer will hold up after all. Watch the consumer. Prefers Lowes for its better multiple.

HOLD

Is down 10% in the last 3 months. It's been tough for the homebuilders. They did have a positive quarter. Likes that they are gaining market share in the professionals segment and oeprating margins continue to grow. Happy to hold onto this.

BUY

It reports next week. A great value name. Lowes delivers earnings and dividends well. Has owned it a long time.

Excellent company.
Will continue to hold.
Expects demand for building products to increase as economy recovers. 
Strong management team with good long term prospects.

BUY

Trades at a lower multiple than HD. Increased operating margins from 11% to 16%, pro business is expanding. Applying HD playbook very successfully.

HOLD

He just sold Home Depot and holds a small position in this. The difference is that Lowes is growing its professionals segment, which is up 10% the past quarter.

BUY

It reports Wednesday, and the street is bearish. But he likes LOW, because it's already declined from Home Depot's last quarter and he expects the CEO is tell a positive forecast.

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)
