13:49 EDTHDEarnings Watch: Home Depot sees FY15 EPS $5.11-$5.17, revenue growth 3.5%-4.7%
Home Depot (HD), a home improvement retailer, is scheduled to report first quarter results before the market opens on Tuesday, May 19, with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.15 on revenue of $20.82B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.12-$1.19 on revenue of $20.47B-$21.26B. LAST QUARTER: Home Depot reported fourth quarter adjusted EPS of $1.00 on revenue of $19.16B, beating analysts' consensus estimates for 89c and $18.7B, respectively. The company said same-store sales increased 7.9%, with U.S. SSS up 8.9%. The company forecast fiscal year 2015 EPS of $5.11-$5.17 on revenue growth of 3.5%-4.7%, against estimates at that time for $5.23 and $86.46B, respectively. Home Depot also guided to FY15 SSS growth of 3.3%-4.5% and said it expected FY15 gross margin to be flat, with a tax rate of approximately 37%. Capital expenditures for FY15 were foreseen at $1.6B, with cash flow from business at $9B. In addition to reporting better than expected Q4 earnings, Home Depot also announced an $18B share repurchase program and increased its quarterly dividend by 26% to 59c. NEWS: On its Q4 earnings conference call, Home Depot said it expected moderate GDP growth and housing recovery to drive growth in 2015. The company noted that if foreign currency rates continued as they were in February, sales in 2015 could be negatively impacted by $1B. At March's Raymond James conference, Home Depot backed its guidance for FY15. The company also said it sees FY15 operating margin approximately 60bps to greater than 13%. The company plans to open six new stores in FY15, including five stores in Mexico and one in Canada. The retailer is targeting FY15 share repurchases of $4.5B. On May 5, MacRumors reported that Home Depot may begin phasing out support for Apple Pay (AAPL) at its retail stores. Point72 Asset Management announced that it liquidated its stake during the quarter. STREET RESEARCH: In March, Oppenheimer said it believes that Home Depot has a number of positive catalysts, including solid U.S. consumer spending trends, significant slack in the U.S, housing recovery, improving market sentiment and investors' interest in domestic plays as the dollar strengthens. The firm raised its price target to $133 from $115 and kept an Outperform rating on the stock. On April 26, Barron's said shares of Home Depot could rise towards $124 as the housing market regenerates and demand for renovation grows. BofA/Merrill said the home improvement is one of the more attractive areas within retail and recommended buying Home Depot. During the quarter, Home Depot was initiated with a Hold rating and $108 target at Cantor. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, Home Depot shares are up over 1.5%. Ahead of Tuesday's earnings, Home Depot is fractionally higher at $113.77.
