11:25 EDTHDEarnings Preview: Home Depot shares up nearly 9% since last earnings report
Home Depot (HD), a home improvement retailer, is scheduled to report second quarter results before the market opens on Tuesday, August 19, with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.45 on revenue of $23.62B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.41-$1.49 on revenue of $22.9B-$24.08B. LAST QUARTER: Home Depot reported first quarter EPS of $1.00 against estimates for 99c on revenue of $19.69B against estimates of $19.95B. The company said same-store sales increased 2.6%, with U.S. SSS up 3.3%. The company raised its fiscal year 2014 EPS view to $4.42 from $4.38 against estimates at that time for $4.42. The retailer also backed its FY14 sales growth view of up 4.8% from fiscal year 2013. On its Q4 earnings conference call, Home Depot forecast gross margins for FY14 would be "about the same" as last year. For the remainder of the year, the company said its view on the housing market recovery had not changed. NEWS: At Oppenheimer's 14th Annual Consumer Conference in June, Home Depot reaffirmed its 4.8% sales growth view for the year and said SSS growth would be 4.6%. The company also said it expected $7B in share repurchases for FY14. The retailer also said it intends to increase its dividend every year. The Wall Street Journal said Home Depot is among the retailers betting that consumer basics, like toilet paper or detergent, will increase sales and lure shoppers into stores. STREET RESEARCH: Citigroup expects Home Depot shares will continue outperforming Lowe's (LOW) in the near-term given its store base concentration and better merchandising effort on the Pro side. Deutsche Bank lowered its estimates for both Home Depot after Tractor Supply (TSCO) and Lumber Liquidators (LL) pre-announced Q2 comp misses. The firm, which noted that the negative earnings revision is "relatively minor," said that while the business models are different, Tractor Supply and Lumber Liquidators have historically correlated positively with Home Depot and Lowe's on comps. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, Home Depot shares are up almost 9%. Year-to-date, shares are up over 2%.
