Guru Investment Theses on Home Depot Inc

Bill Nygren Comments on Home Depot - Apr 09, 2015

We also eliminated most of our position in Home Depot (HD), which has performed well for several years and also reached our estimate of intrinsic value. We would like to commend Home Depot’s former CEO Frank Blake and the entire Home Depot management team for their strong focus on maximizing returns and growing per-share value. Consistent with the message delivered in Bill Nygren (Trades, Portfolio)’s fourth quarter commentary, which discussed the Fund’s desire to minimize tax consequences of our sales, we have maintained a small position in Home Depot shares that we have owned for less than one year.

From Bill Nygren (Trades, Portfolio)’s Oakmark Fund - 1Q 2015 Letter.

Baron Funds Comments on Home Depot Inc. - Feb 24, 2014

Home Depot, Inc. (NYSE:HD) is the largest home improvement center in the U.S., with 2,260 stores (1,977 U.S., 180 Canada, 103 Mexico) versus Lowe's with 1,748 stores (1,714 U.S.). Based on a $600 billion addressable market, Home Depot has an approximately 12% market share (Lowe's 8.4%). Sales by product category are: 31% plumbing/electrical/kitchen, 29% hardware/seasonal, 21% building materials/lumber/millwork, 19% paint/flooring. Only 3% of sales come via the Internet. The company owns 90% of its stores. We believe corporate initiatives to unlock real estate value could result in additional share price appreciation.

We recently attended Home Depot's management investor conference. We believe the company is "best-in-class" and has several competitive advantages including scale, distribution efficiencies, great management, interconnected retail through stores and the Internet, excellent customer service, and a rock-solid balance sheet. In the next few years, we believe the company will continue to benefit from an improvement in home sales and repair and remodel activity. We see a path to generating mid-teen annual returns in the next few years.



From Ron Baron (Trades, Portfolio)'s Baron Funds' fourth quarter 2013 commentary.

Top Ranked Articles about Home Depot Inc

Mr. Market and an Assessment of the Dow Jones Industrial Average – September 2015 DJIA currently appears to be fairly valued
Legendary value investor Benjamin Graham is probably most famous for his Mr. Market parable. In the story, an investor is greeted each day by Mr. Market, who offers to purchase the investor's stocks. Every offer is different, and sometimes the price is insanely high, sometimes it seems fair, and other times it is clearly too low. But one thing remains the same – the intrinsic value of the investments does not change. As a result, the investor is left to decide when to buy and sell based on the relationship between the intrinsic value and the price Mr. Market is offering. Read more...
