What are analysts saying about Home Depot, Inc. (The) stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Home Depot, Inc. (The) stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Home Depot has outperformed the broader industry in the past one year, given the consistent gains from improving customer experience, solid execution and consistent housing market recovery. It is also on track to achieve its long-term dividend payout, share repurchase and return on investment targets. Home Depot’s focus on developing merchandising tools, along with investment in building its interconnected capabilities is expected to boost its top line, and enhance market share. Also, the company's raised earnings growth guidance for fiscal 2016 bolsters optimism. However, intense competition and a soft economic recovery may prove deterrents, pushing back home improvement projects. The company’s significant exposure to international markets makes it vulnerable to currency headwinds. Estimates have been stable ahead of the company’s Q4 earnings release, while it has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (1/19/2017)
Citigroup Inc. analysts commented, "While recent reports from department stores and other retailers indicate a challenging consumer spending environment ahead, we would argue more share of wallet is going to categories outside apparel," analyst Kate McShane wrote."The pockets of growth within retail appear to concentrated with home improvement and home furnishings spending (based on census data and consistency in comps)," McShane added.Related Link: Home Depot Punished, Lowe's Rewarded For Q1 BeatsThe analyst said Lowe's comps should grow as "home improvement tide continuing to lift all ships" amid improving housing market, pent-up demand and easing credit scores."HI spending at retail is near prior peak levels w/o the benefit of a bubble. HD currently has a 13 percent EBIT margin vs. LOW's 9 percent EBIT margin, which leaves more opportunity for EPS upside," the analyst noted.Home Depot, Lowe's Showing StrengthFurther, the analyst highlighted the lack of beat and raise from Lowe's strong first-quarter result shows the company's conservativeness. In contrast, Home Depot Inc (NYSE: HD), which also typically issue conservative outlook, raised its full-year estimates on more modest top- and bottom-line improvements."In our view, LOW could probably grow EPS this year by about 25 percent through a combination of a 5.3 percent comp (a 50 bps acceleration from last year), EBIT margin improvement by 94 bps (high end of guidance), and $3.8 billion in share buybacks (above guidance but consistent with last year)," McShane elaborated.Even More BullishIn a more bullish scenario, the analyst said she sees Lowe's delivering a 6.0 percent comp this year (matching Home Depot on a two-year stack) and assuming an extra 19 bps of SG&A leverage would add an incremental $0.11 in EPS.Further, the analyst shed light on the aspect that Lowe's would eventually close the comp gap with Home Depot, noting that with the first quarter results, "Lowe's could be at a pivotal point where its quarterly comp gains outshine HD."Yes, stacks are easier for LOW but reaching new higher comp levels should bode well for operating expense leverage and LOW has about 400 bps of operating margin improvement to go before it matches HD's levels. In our view, if LOW continues to execute well, its earnings algorithm could be a more interesting story," (5/19/2016)
