What are Wall Street analysts saying about Home Depot stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Home Depot stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Home Depot has a five-year long trend of beating earnings estimates, which continued in second-quarter fiscal 2018. Moreover, sales reverted to a positive surprise trend after a miss in the last-reported quarter. Results gained from a rebound in the seasonal business that impacted sales in the fiscal second quarter and the solid execution. Further, its relentless focus on affording innovative products, boosting interconnected customer experience and driving productivity seems to be paying off. Steady housing market recovery and strong customer demand also remain tailwinds. Backed by the solid performance in the first half of fiscal 2018, the company raised the earnings and sales forecast for fiscal 2018. However, the stock has lagged the industry in the past three months. Also, commodity cost inflation in various categories, including rising raw material and transportation costs as well as recently enacted tariffs are likely to pressure margins." (10/24/2018) 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We had the opportunity to host investor meetings in Canada last week with Jeff Kinnaird (President, Muench (VP, the HD Investor Relations team. Conversations were constructive, and focused largely on the macro environment, company initiatives (store improvements, Pro, supply chain, etc.) and LT opportunities/risks. Our takeaways include: 1) Despite a softening U.S. housing backdrop, HD makes a good case for continued growth; 2) in-store productivity initiatives are proving viable offsets to cost pressures, which unlikely abate with wage, transportation and tariff-driven inflation; and 3) Pro opportunities are still early innings, with growth levers from data analytics, a new Pro referral program (for install services), a B2B website and fulfillment improvements."
