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

Expectations for results on Wednesday are low. Selling lots of lumber products and lumber prices being down means they get less revenue. He owns HD-N. LOW-N has been a turnaround and catch-up story. They have done a good job so far.

This looks great, just like Home Depot. You can enter it here, though hold it if you own.

He owns HD-N. LOW-N has been a serial underperformer and has not kept up with the management strength of HD-N. LOW-N has new management and perhaps this is an opportunity but he would go with the proven winner.

Disproportionately being hammered based on a perception by the market that something really, really bad is happening. Would be hurt a lot if there were a recession tomorrow, and housing demand was down. Not a bad time to get in from a long-term view. We will get a recession in the next 1-2 years, and the pullback now may mean that it weathers the downturn better. (Analysts’ price target is $113.46)

LOW vs. HD. He chooses Home Depot instead. Operationally, HD does a fabulous job. Lowes has underperformed. Demographics are working for both. Tailwind of about 5-10% in revenue. Not as susceptible to the Amazon effect. Lowes is a safe place to be, but muted on the growth.

(Past Top Pick April 17, 2018, Up 15%) Them and Home Depot occupy half the home improvement market. Secular tailwinds are attractive. Handyman skills are declining among consumers, so Lowe's business of sending contractors to houses is growing (and buying supplies for these projects from Lowes). Big share buybacks and heavy free cash flow. Good balance sheet. If there's an economic downturn, yes, their business will get hit, but Lowes will sustain this rough patch.

There's a growing transition to do-it-for-me as society ages. so their in-house contracting business is growing and--guess what--they'll buy Lowe's products. Lowe's has been a little behind Home Depot in growth, but Lowe's is cheaper with more upside with lots of free cash flow. (Analysts' price target $105.86)

(A Top Pick Oct 13/16, Up 24%) HD-N is the number one player. He thinks if there is room for improvement here then he would go into this one. It does not have the premium valuation of HD-N.

They have strong management and good cash flows. The price has come down but she does not recommended adding it. It will be challenging next year. We need to see a lot more new housing construction. It will do well and at least keep up with the market, however.

(Market Call Minute.) He is very interested in looking at this as millennials are starting to move out of their parents’ houses. This could be a big beneficiary.

It is incredible how well they have done, second to HD-T. So far Amazon cannot do anything to kill them. The stuff they sell is heavy to ship. They have done a great job of returning capital to shareholders, but he has other ideas.

Home Depot (HD-N) or Lowe’s (LOW-N)? Home Depot is about 3 to 4 times the size of this company’s, and their store count dwarfs them. Home Depot is down about 6%-7% this year where Lowe’s is having a better time of it. However, going back 5 years, Home Depot has been a better, smoother experience. This is a tough call, but knows that Home Depot’s footprint is a bit higher.

New US home starts are strong, and most States have growth of around 10% year-over-year, but the stocks are not behaving. He would prefer to see this group get engaged before putting new money here. Also, would prefer Home Depot (HD-N), which is better at driving market share.
