    Another bad news!

    U.S. construction spending fell in August, the second decline in the past three months, with housing, non-residential and government projects all showing weakness.

    Construction spending dropped a seasonally adjusted 0.8 percent.

    Funds are dumping this stock

    Anyone still owns this stock simply needs to get his head checked. There are thousands of companies on the market grows faster than this company and trading cheaper and without the security breach problem. It is dumb to still own this stock and waiting for the next shoe to drop. When the management finally comes clean, it will be either an earning miss or sales miss announcement for sure. Not to mention more lawsuits will follow to.

    Pending Home Sales Down 2.2%

    Think of it this way. This no growth company's extremely overpriced stock is still up 20% in the past year. If it turns out that the sales come down 2%, then we have a potential for a 22% drop in the stock for the stock to be in line with its bad fundamentals. That is the case for why this can be one of the most profitable short sell targets on the market. You want to position on the short sell side of this disaster stock before the quarterly report.

    Another confirmation of a slowing down home market. Pending home sales down 2.2% due to lack of investors. Pending home sales is actually the most important indicator of the housing market health in my opinion because it reflects the most recent sales situation. It is more up-to-date information than other home sales data.

    Invest in BABA or HD?

    BABA, TSLA and FB all have very strong growth, but HD has no growth. Longs that are stupid enough to still own this stock is simply waiting for another shoe to drop. It will be either the management finally comes clean to admit they will miss the earnings or sales. Or another class action lawsuit filed because customer bank account money were stolen due to using debit cards in Home Depot. It is better to sell this time bomb stock and buy something else safer.

    LOL. Are you sure this management is better than Jack Ma? Somehow I don't think so. This management did not admit the security breach until one week later and did not admit the number of stolen cards is larger than Target breach until two weeks later. You got to ask when this management will eventually admit the sales and earnings are way way off. One month later, two months later, three months later??? I think the high growth BABA is a better buy than this no growth (may even become negative growth) extremely overpriced major disaster company.

    Some investors here are so naïve to think the customers will be OK with credit card fraud protection, but in reality, many of the HD customers used debit cards and their money may be drained totally without any way to get their money back other than filing a lawsuit against Home Depot. Very dumb to be still in the long side of this bomb stock. The disaster has barely started. Plenty of downside potential and not much upside for sure.
    -------
    The Home Depot (HD) data breach – which compromised some 56 million credit and debit card accounts – is to blame for a recent outbreak of fraudulent bank transactions, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.

    Sources familiar with the incident tell the Journal that criminals are using data stolen in the hack attack to buy prepaid cards, electronics, and groceries, with numerous cases popping up across the U.S. According to the report, some of the illegal transactions have been traced back to batches of cardholder accounts tied to specific zip codes.

    Existing home sales down 1.8 percent

    I noticed the stores have a lot less customers ever since the breach news came out. And I post that very early on. Frequently I see more employees than the customers. Investors that do not even walk the stores are dumb.

    We now have conflicting home sales numbers of new versus existing home sales. Let us analyze. New home sales up from 426K to 504K units while the existing home sales down from 5.14 million to 5.05 million units. So new home sales up 78K units while existing home sales down by 90K. Overall the home sales still dropped 12K.

    The stock price of Alibaba (BABA) and HD are identical now. Funds should ask themselves the question of whether they should invest in this no growth company mired in the biggest security breach problem or BABA that is growing at 45% annual rate. To me the answer is super easy and clear. This is an extremely expensive no growth bubble stock that is not worthy to own at all even without considering the massive breach problem.

  • prudent.investor by prudent.investor Sep 19, 2014 10:21 AM Flag

    And the management has been hiding the fact for weeks. It is plain stupid to own this stock because you will not know what else the management has been hiding until many weeks or months later.

  • So lovely. I did not expect I can actually get to sell this major tragedy company at this great expensive price level. Thanks for whoever was dumb enough to buy at this price point.

    Another poster mentioned the strategy of Sell HD and buy LOW before. I think that was an excellent combo trade idea. Lowe's (LOW) must have taken a lot of HD customers due to fear of using credit cards in HD stores.

  • This is a perfect point to reopen short sell position in this disaster stock.

    And senators also seeking FTC investigation. As if the management does not have enough things to deal with yet. LOL. This is hopeless perfect storm for management. Forget about business focus. LOL.

    States have launched a joint probe on Home Depot. The management will be distracted for sure.

    Yah, this company service is not the same as before for sure. And you can expect it to get even worse from now on. They will have to layoff some people to cut cost pretty soon.

    This is going to be a scary movie for the longs who are too slow to get out. LOL. $80 is still too high for this stock. This stock should go back down to the $30 range it was in a couple of years ago because its sales and profits no doubt will drop back down to the same level a couple of years ago or even lower.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • prudent.investor prudent.investor Sep 10, 2014 9:23 AM Flag

    Several lawsuits have been filed already. A lot more to come. The legal cost could start to pile up very fast. Lawyers are not cheap. The potential liabilities Home Depot has to pay is even bigger due to the delayed admission of the breach by the management. Say goodbye to profits. Say hello to losses.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    LOL. Do not kid yourself. They are not planned sales. Insiders simply tried to cash out of this extremely overpriced stock.
