Better Buy: Home Depot vs. Lowe's

Better Buy: Home Depot vs. Lowe's

Thanks to a pair of mid-November earnings reports, investors have a clear picture into the latest operating trends from Home Depot (NYSE: HD) and Lowe's Companies (NYSE: LOW). While the home-improvement giants are under pressure from inflation and a cooling housing market, both retailers showed solid sales and profitability trends through late October. Home Depot continued to demonstrate its market-leading position in all the critical operating metrics.
