Both home improvement retailers had excellent quarters, but Lowe's was the clear winner. The stock is also cheaper and more in line with its historical valuation

The two leading home improvement retailers both released earnings results this week. The Home Depot Inc. (HD) reported Tuesday and produced what I felt was a monster quarter. The company's year-over-year growth rates surpassed what analysts had expected on nearly every metric.

It was rival Lowe's Companies Inc. (LOW) turn to go on Wednesday. As much as I liked Home Depot's quarter, I thought Lowe's was even better. This was the second quarter in a row that I believe Lowe's outdid its main competitor. By almost every measurement, Lowe's was superior to Home Depot.

Multiple companies have achieved yearly highs recently

According to GuruFocus, these stocks have reached their 52-week highs.

Roper reached the 52-week high of $440.90

Roper Technologies Inc. (ROP) is a diversified technology company that operates out of four segments: Application Software, Network Software & Systems, Measurement & Analytical Solutions and Process Technologies. The firm emphasizes acquiring asset-light, cash-generative businesses. Roper then reinvests this excess cash in businesses that yield incrementally higher rates of return. Roper has now rotated a majority of its business from legacy industrial products into technology software in mature, niche markets with large quantities of deferred revenue.

Lowe's same-store sales easily bested expectations and grew over the quarter

Yesterda, I published an article on GuruFocus reviewing Home Depot’s (HD) first quarter results, which I thought were strong. Today, competitor Lowe’s Companies (LOW) released first quarter results that I feel were even more impressive.

Shares of Lowe’s have underperformed Home Depot for a long time. Home Depot has been the better stock to own over the last year, five years and even 40 years. Due to its leadership position in the home improvement group, Home Depot often trades with a premium price-earnings multiple that the market often doesn’t award to Lowe’s.

While one strong quarter doesn’t reverse this

Diageo tops the list

The following companies have posted positive performances so far this year, as well as over the past several years.

GuruFocus’ positive rating for profitability suggests these companies will continue to report lavish gains in the coming years, eventually beating the overall market. Wall Street supports this expectation, as its sell-side analysts have issued overweight recommendation ratings for each of them.

High profitability means that these companies will very likely continue to pay dividends in the future as well, pushing share prices higher.

Concentrating on promising areas where Markel has good understanding and knowledge, the guru’s Virginia-based firm uses a value-oriented approach to stock picking. Gayner also maintains a margin of safety within the investment portfolio and believes that since a stock is part of a business, it is worth what the present value of future cash flows are.

A summary of recent dividend increases, along with pertinent analysis of each company

As part of my monitoring process, I review a list of dividend increases every week. I usually focus on companies that have managed to boost dividends to shareholders for at least a decade. It looks like this year may be classified as the year of higher dividend growth.

This is because of the new tax law, which went into effect this year. As a result of the lowering of corporate tax rates, companies are increasing the amounts of their regular dividends to shareholders and are initiating new share buyback programs. Some companies are accelerating their dividend increase

How much value you get out of a single stock idea depends on how big your position size is, how long you hold the stock, how fast the stock compounds its value and how cheap it is

Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio) has said “good ideas are rare.”Â Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) often talks about the idea of a punch card with just 20 punches on it. Each time you buy a stock – you use up one punch. Buffett believes anyone who invests that way will become a better investor. Is that true, though?

Analyzing the paint company's investment potential following its earnings report

(Published by Nick McCullum on July 21)

Dividend history is one of the most straightforward and accurate measures of business quality.

Intuitively, this makes sense – a company must have a significant and durable competitive advantage in order to raise its dividend every year for decades.

Sherwin-Williams Co. (SHW) is one of the most high-quality, well-managed businesses in our stock universe.

The company has increased its annual dividend since 1979, which qualifies it to be a member of the Dividend Aristocrats – elite dividend stocks with at least 25 years of consecutive dividend increases.

Determining which paint company is the better investment

(Published by Bob Ciura on June 14)

The Dividend Aristocrats are among the best dividend growth stocks investors can buy. The Dividend Aristocrats is a group of 51 stocks with at least 25 consecutive years of dividend increases.

Companies with more than two decades of dividend growth must have a strong brand, dominant industry position and durable competitive advantages.

Just because a stock is on the list of Dividend Aristocrats, however, does not automatically make it a buy.

For example, PPG Industries Inc. (PPG) is a Dividend Aristocrat. It has increased its dividend for 44 years in a row,

Avoid these critical dividend investing pitfalls

(Published Jan. 30 by Nicholas McCullum)

Dividend investing is one of the most repeatable, surefire methods to build wealth over the long run.

Investing in subsets of the overall stock market with strong dividend histories and promising growth prospects has been proven to boost the return of investment portfolios.

One example is the Dividend Aristocrats – stocks with 25-plus years of consecutive dividend increases. The Standard & Poor's 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index has handily outperformed the S&P 500.

Here are 5 actionable examples

(Updated Jan. 19 by The Financial Canadian)

As dividend growth investors, it is often easy to get caught up in the trap of "chasing yield" – investing in the highest-yielding stocks without regard to any other financial metrics.

However, this is not always the best approach.

Chasing yield can result in investing in companies that are paying unsustainable dividends, which can often lead to one or more dividend cuts.

Dividend cuts are one of the worst things that can happen to a dividend growth investor.

They are poorly received by the market in general and seen as a sign of
