Just had a very bad experience with the delivery team the HD chose. And later found out it's really the problem with the upper management. I had much better experience with Lowes for accommodating the customer. I will never come back to HD. They will not learn until customers are getting divorced with them.
Why is Home Depot down today I do not get it?
I started purchasing HD in 1988. I purchased all the way up through 2000. I still own all the shares I started out with. HD has been very good to me.I purchased all of my shares thru a DRIP plan. I will be able to retire off of HD alone. I purchsed many other companies thru DRIP plans. If your reasonably young, get into drip plans and forget about touching your stock. I am 69 and looking forward to retiring.
Ok, I'm in for 500 shares. Crossing my fingers timing was right!
The bots are running the show today, good time to buy the pullback, similar to what happened to NVDA...
Just bought in this am. First time owning HD as I'm more into tech stocks but this is a screaming buy this morning.

One thing I've learned over the year is there doesn't necessarily need to be a reason for a particular stock to fall. There are so many creative option plays that can weigh in and media spread fear. This Amazon threat however needs to be addressed by management! They must express to investors that they are not seeing any loss in business from any threat by online vendors! They don't even have to call Amazon out as they can take the initial Trump response after the disaster in Charlottesville. They can vaguely refer to the threat as "a major online retailer!" This is the second time that HD has plunged after Amazon was placed by the media as a threat! Management should not stand by idly and not address this media-inspired bunch of baloney!!! And at the $150 area HD is a screaming buy!!!
The market is acting ridiculous lately. HD could have announced a cure for cancer and a buyout by Buffett and probably still would have gone down.
Surprised this is selling off into earnings. Low inventory of houses. People fixing up their own homes and a great season for it.
Looks like HD had a lot less people this weekend, Surprised it was not packed with people
You can buy a January 2019 $145 strike call for $15 as I write. Does anyone think, even in a bad market, HD won't go up 6.7% in the next 17 months?
The stock already rallied into earnings from $142 to $156. The RSI is overbought and the price is at the upper Bollinger band. Holding into earnings is not smart. May pop in the morning on good report but will whither in the next 3 weeks with downside to lower BB and 200 day MA at $144. GLTA the rise is in and as they say "BUY THE RUMOR SELL ON THE NEWS" !

Remember amazon got into selling appliances HD dropped for no reason. Now beat the street earnings and gave good guidance shares dropping? Thinks good time to buy on this pull back. MM controlling Hd.
This sell off has nothing to do with Amazon. It's just the usual sell the news that morons do. The internet has changed the stock market in horrible ways by giving everyone easy access to trading and most people have no clue what they're doing and they're trying to make a few bucks here and there. The bottom line has not changed. Buy HD and hold it. It will be one of the best companies in the world for a very long time. I bought it twenty years ago and have made a nice retirement from it.

Craig Menear, chairman, CEO and president. “We also achieved the highest quarterly net earnings in company history. "
Street's reaction doesn't make sense!!!
Outstanding earnings report and down 2+ % ???
I love how "The Street" will publish conflicting stories about the same stock within 10 min of each other.
