HD T +1 more HD T CSCO

Today's Research Daily features new research reports on 16 major stocks, including AT&T (T), Home Depot (HD) and Cisco (CSCO). Buy-ranked AT&T’s shares have decreased -9.4% in the last three months, underperforming the Zacks Wireless National industry's fall of -1.8%. The Zacks analyst thinks that this performance is attributed to its five-year long trend of beating earnings estimates, which continued in first-quarter fiscal 2018. Per the Zacks analyst, Apache's sharp focus on Alpine High Play along with its ambitious plans to enrich the region's midstream prowess is expected to generate top-tier returns for the company.

To Buy Home Depot (HD) Stock, You Have to Really Trust the Economy

HD

After all, there’s a school of thought that investing simply comes down to owning the best businesses and holding them for the long-term. As Warren Buffett put it, “It’s far better to own a wonderful business at a fair price than a fair business at wonderful price.” And it’s hard to argue that Home Depot isn’t a wonderful business. Based solely on those critieria, at any moderate valuation — and HD trades just under 20x forward earnings — Home Depot should be worth owning for the long haul. And indeed, HD has been a wonderful long-term investment, returning an average of 11.6% annually, including dividends over the past 20 years. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips. But there’s another broad school of thought that argues that price — and timing — do matter. And oddly enough, Home Depot stock proves that argument as well. Investors blanched at fiscal first-quarter results in May, sending HD down after earnings. As Ian Bezek detailed at the time, it was a mixed-quarter, particularly relative to expectations. But expectations aside, there’s really nothing wrong with Home Depot’s business.

Jim Cramer Shares His Thoughts On Home Depot, Celgene And More

HD

On CNBC's "Mad Money Lightning Round", Jim Cramer said he would buy Prudential Financial Inc (NYSE: PRU). Instead of buying Smartsheet Inc (NYSE: SMAR), Cramer would buy salesforce.com, inc. (NYSE: CRM). Cramer advised his viewer to buy more shares of Home Depot Inc (NYSE: HD). He thinks it might pull back after the Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ: COST) report. Solaredge Technologies Inc (NASDAQ: SEDG) is a technology company connected to solar and therefore it has much higher barriers to entry, explained Cramer.

Take a Hard Look at Home Depot Stock for Do-It-Yourself Gains

HD

It’s hard not to buy stocks when they pullback following strong quarterly results. That’s exactly the case we have here with Home Depot (NYSE:HD). Fortunately for us, Home Depot stock also fits the “common sense” investment thesis. What’s the common sense investment thesis? In some cases, they are looking to sell and are making last-minute upgrades. Some recently bought their homes knowing they need a little TLC, while some homeowners are finally in a good enough place to get that new kitchen or bathroom they’ve been dreaming about for a decade or more. Of course a lower tax rate rate helps, as does its stock buyback to some regard. But the fact that Home Depot is growing sales and earnings this much without opening hardly any new stores (just 4 in the last quarter) is really impressive to me.

This Trade War Is Eating Away at Home Depot’s Foundation

HD

HD stock has pulled back sharply from recent highs, and the retreat looks more like a longer selloff than a bout of profit taking. It’s time to turn bearish on HD stock. When I last looked at Home Depot back in May, the company was preparing to release its latest quarterly earnings report. Now, however, the growing global trade war is beginning to take its toll on HD stock. These headwinds do not bode well for HD stock. And they are part of the reason why HD shares have fallen nearly 3.5% in the past two weeks.
