By the look of it, Americans have been rolling up their sleeves during quarantine and tackling those home-improvement projects. And investors seem equally eager to build a foundation for big gains on the resurgence of DIY.

With people spending a lot more time indoors, it’s no surprise home-improvement retailers Home Depot and Lowe’s have seen a huge boost to sales—and their stocks—in the past several months.

On Tuesday, Home Depot posted impressive second-quarter earnings, with profits soaring 24.5% year over year to $4.3 billion, while sales came in at $38.1 billion. And Bank of America analysts believe it “will not be the last of [Home Depot]’s strong run,” they wrote Wednesday. Lowe’s, meanwhile, posted a 30% surge in revenue for the quarter on Wednesday, with profits jumping a massive 68.7% from the year-earlier quarter, to $2.8 billion.

“Home is definitely the one place people are spending money on,” Edward Jones’s

Floor Decor Holdings, Inc. (FND) is a Great Momentum Stock: Should You Buy?

hari drack

Momentum investing revolves around the idea of following a stock’s recent trend in either direction. In the ‘long’ context, investors will be essentially be “buying high, but hoping to sell even higher.” With this methodology, taking advantage of trends in a stock’s price is key; once a stock establishes a course, it is more than likely to continue moving that way. The goal is that once a stock heads down a fixed path, it will lead to timely and profitable trades.

While many investors like to look for momentum in stocks, this can be very tough to define. There is a lot of debate surrounding which metrics are the best to focus on and which are poor quality indicators of future performance. The Zacks Momentum Style Score, part of the Zacks Style Scores, helps address this issue for us.

Floor Decor Holdings, Inc. (FND) Expected to Beat Earnings Estimates: Should You Buy?

hari drack

The market expects Floor Decor Holdings, Inc. (FND) to deliver a year-over-year decline in earnings on lower revenues when it reports results for the quarter ended June 2020. This widely-known consensus outlook is important in assessing the company’s earnings picture, but a powerful factor that might influence its near-term stock price is how the actual results compare to these estimates.

The stock might move higher if these key numbers top expectations in the upcoming earnings report, which is expected to be released on July 30. On the other hand, if they miss, the stock may move lower.

While management’s discussion of business conditions on the earnings call will mostly determine the sustainability of the immediate price change and future earnings expectations, it’s worth having a handicapping insight into the odds of a positive EPS surprise.

Zacks Consensus Estimate

This company is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.09 per share

Some of these items I always buy second hand too, but I never thought of some of these other home decor items. Includes tips on where to find these items and the best price to pay. Great ideas for thrift shopping for used home decor!

Before reading this post, you should know something about me.  I love decorating our home, but I do not love spending a lot of money.  I dislike spending money so much, in fact, that you could probably call me cheap. I prefer to consider myself thrifty, and I’ve found that it really is possible to create a beautiful home without spending a lot of money.

Readers have been asking me to share some of my tips for shopping and decorating on a budget, so I started looking around my home for budget-decorating trends. As I did, I realized that there are some items for my home that I never buy new anymore.  Now, it took me awhile to figure these tricks out and, I’ll admit, I wasted a pretty penny on purchasing items for my home before I learned I could actually buy nicer pieces for less money.
