    compared to HD is 20s...any reason for this?
    Is it overvalued?

    I have one more question to add to iysc2002's:
    Is the Pope Catholic?

    • The price a share has $hit to do with it ( is this overpriced?)! Why is everyone S T U P I D ..Such dumbass questions. What if the stock split then its only $20 a share SO frickin what! Then your shares doubled but are worth the SAME! What color is the sky in your world? Lets keep this board a little more real and the facts ok?

      • I hope you're not playing with real money kid.

        The share price does mean something because that's what you pay to get a slice of earnings. Lowe's offers you about $0.050 of earnings per dollar of share price. HD offers you $0.066.

        So if you only needed a nickel in earnings last year, Lowe's charges you about a dollar. HD only charges $0.76.

        Per-share debt at Lowe's further increases the effective price per share -- and interest on that debt could reduce earnings per share if rates increase. So, unless it grows much faster, Lowe's is what folks call "overpriced".

      • tony7cm ... i don't think either stock has split since this morning.

        The earnings per share are within 10% for LOW and HD. So it's not so "STUPID" to ask ... drumroll ...

        Why is one stock priced (again per share) almost double the other?
