Question about Home Depot He owned this from the late-1990s till 2020 and did a 10-bagger. He sold it not because of the dividend, but a comparison against Lowe's. HD's success largely was a result of organic growth and operating efficiencies. In the past decade, their operating margins moved from 11% to 16.5% vs. Lowe's in a similar, but slower rate. So, he'd rather capture what will come, so he switched to Lowe's.

Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Lowe’s company boasts 35.1% YOY same-store sales growth and a 69% leap in quarterly profits. The company plans to expand online sales and add private brands. True, DIY customers shopped a little less this spring, but those folks were spending more on big-ticket items. Shares of LOW popped 4% immediately after that report. The street still believes in the name at seven buys and three holds at a price target of nearly $230 that’s over 12% higher than the current level. Home Depot boasts eight buys and one hold at a price target about 11% higher at $363.43. Read 3 Recovering Stocks to Consider for our full analysis.

A great company. Has made corporate, strategic choices with contractors. The strategy has paid off handsomely. Probably better than Home Depot. We should continue to see real estate do well. Not cheap, but a quality company.

LOW vs. HD He had owned HD for close to 20 years, and had done well. You don't stop doing research after buying a company. His research showed that Lowe's was catching up. Lowe's trades 5x cheaper than HD, margins are lower but expanding. See his Top Picks today.

TOP PICK
Better value at this point than HD. Lowe's is using the same recipe as HD did to expand operating margin, but you can get in in advance of its doing that. LOW is up dramatically today, as results impressed the street. Yield is 1.65%. (Analysts’ price target is $225.50)

BUY
Yesterday, Home Depot reported and shares tumbled, and Lowe's fell from $193 to $182. Today, Lowe's reported an excellent quarter, and shares jumped $17. Lowe's is NOT Home Depot; it is in better shape than Home Depot. Lowe's stores are friendly to professional contractors and are winning back female consumers, their core demographic until a few years ago after which the company lost its way. This week's sell-off of retail stocks was completely overdone.

Technical analysis of its chart LOW has made new highs since last fall, but compared to the S&P chart in terms of performance, LOW peaked 10 months ago and continues to struggle. LOW vs. HXV (homebuilders ETF): LOW is flirting now with 52-week relative low performance. Something isn't working and he doesn't like the stock. The current chart shows a break in the trendline and support at $180; it closed at $190 today. He predicts a 10-point retreat after next week's quarterly report if it disappoints. LOW underperforms the home-builders.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Aug 31/20, Up 18%) Has an opportunity to improve their margins. Have some concerns about outperforming the market. There is a lot of demand for housing builds but there is a shortage of housing trades and materials. Will require some time for them to increase thrust. A hold right now.

DON'T BUY

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.

BUY

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.

BUY

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.

BUY

They report Wednesday. Under the new CEO, he expects Lowes to take market share from Home Depot.

BUY
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).

BUY

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.

BUY
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.
