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 outperformed the industry in the past year. The company continued its five-year long trend of beating earnings estimates in third-quarter fiscal 2018. Moreover, it has delivered positive sales surprise in eight out of the last nine quarters. Results gained from strength in both professional and do-it-yourself categories. It also benefits from positive customer response for assortments as well as enhancements to drive integrated shopping experience. The company is witnessing strength across store operations as well as digital portals, which reflect strong customer demand in the home improvement markets. Backed by solid year-to-date performance, the company raised its earnings and sales forecast for fiscal 2018. However, the company saw tough comps comparisons in the fiscal third quarter owing to impacts of hurricane-related sales gains in the prior year. Higher supply chain and transportation costs also continue to hurt margins." (1/14/2019) 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."
