LOW vs. HD Checked back recently with profit taking. He's not worried. Prefers HD, with its long runway for the foreseeable future, longer reach, good treatment of employees, good growth opportunities in Mexico and other places. Fix-it market is reeling a bit because of commodity prices. HD is better managed.

Lowes vs. Home Depot in the reopening There's still room to run for both. Contractors have a ton of work and a shortage of supplies. Both have risen over 20% in the past 6 months. Home Depot trades at a slightly higher valuation, but is worth it and she prefers HD.

Has owned Home Depot for 18, which has outperformed Lowes until 18 months ago (i.e. lagged HD in gross margins). So, he sold HD and bought Lowes three months ago. So far, it's a good start. You want to buy the best company in a sector. Before, it was HD, and now it's Lowes.

It's only 10 points below its all-time high. Their stores are busy and open late. Tools are exploding now and there's a shortage of appliances and tool (look at Stanley Decker).

LOW vs. HD Staying at home has benefited both. Post-pandemic, they can benefit even further from pent-up demand for larger, professional contracts. LOW has outperformed HD since last March, trading at 20x earnings vs. 24x for HD. LOW has a stronger growth rate, 14% vs. HD at 9%. Both names are great, but LOW gets the edge.

It's still worth buying home improvement stocks like this despite a big run-up. People will continue to spend on their homes, seeing it as an investment, not as an expense. In any home boom, like now, people spend on home improvement. Also, we're entering gardening season.

Owned Home Depot before. Lowes has become a better competitor to Home Depot, and is now trading 4 multiple points below, but with similar fundamental points. They have increased their operating margin to about 13%. A Home Depot exec is also now part of Lowes. (Analysts’ price target is $194.52)

He believes in the CEO as he turns around the company. It's been difficult, but is moving in the right direction. Once he executes his vision, Lowe's will rival Home Depot in profits and growth.

The CEO is trying to turn it around. Lowe's has its issues, but Covid has helped by causing an exodus from the city to the suburbs. Lowe's isn't there yet, but the numbers should be strong when they report Wednesday.

Home Depot 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.

They currently have an effective business plan to reduce costs and close their profitablility gap with Home Depot. Also, they are driving volume to their website, and making more attractive their offerings to professional builders and renovators. The neighbourhoods they service are seeing the most robust economic performance, which is a big change. Historically, Home Depot used to benefit from its exposure to big cities, which has suffered from recent lockdowns. Therefore, Lowes offers better upside than Home Depot given store locations. (Analysts’ price target is $181.44)

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
