Home Depot 2H deceleration as expected, says Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs analyst Matthew Fassler said Neutral rated Home Depot reported a solid Q2 beat and guided to a 2H 2018 deceleration against tougher storm-driven comps. Fassler expects the stock to have an in-line reaction to the print and said the read through for Lowe's (LOW) suggests an in-line report with his forecast.

Deutsche Bank sees risk to Home Depot's and Lowe's Q2 comps
The most recent retail sales industry data suggest that Q2 consensus expectations for Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) could be at risk, Deutsche Bank analyst Mike Baker told investors in a research note earlier today. The analyst, however, believes "strong" strong May trends for both companies "provide a bit of a cushion." While earnings reports from Stanley Black & Decker (SWK) and Sherwin-Williams (SHW) provide positive read throughs for the home centers, Whirlpool (WHR) was less encouraging, Baker wrote. The analyst lowered his comp estimates for both Home Depot and Lowe's to below consensus ahead of the Q2 earnings reports. Shares of Home Deport are down 1% to $199.44 in morning trading while Lowe's is down 2% to $98.11.

GDP report included encouraging data for home improvement retailers, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict said that the Q2 GDP report included a few encouraging data points on housing that reinforced his positive near- and long-term view on Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW). Specifically, he points out that growth in private residential investment accelerated to 7.4%year-over-year. Benedict noted that changes in PRI and home center comps have a "strong historical correlation." He also noted that household formation accelerated to an annualized pace of 1.7M in Q2 from about a 1.2M rate in Q1. Benedict has Overweight ratings on both Home Depot and Lowe's.

Floor & Decor downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Keith downgraded Floor & Decor (FND) to Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $39 from $58. The analyst, who admits his June upgrade of the stock was wrong, highlights Luxury Vinyl Tile's disruptive nature on the industry and Home Depot's (HD) "strong share gains" in flooring following Floor & Decor's Q2 miss and guide down. The quarter suggests the impact of these dynamics is occurring faster than anticipated, Keith tells investors in a research note. JPMorgan this morning also downgraded Floor & Decor.

Lowe's price target raised to $115 from $107 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine raised her price target on Lowe's (LOW) to $115 and kept her Buy rating, citing a deeper discounted cash flow model analysis. The analyst also points to the management changes made by the new CEO Marvin Ellison that will transform the company to look like the more efficient competitor Home Depot (HD), while noting the positive macro backdrop of "healthy" home improvement sector with continued ticket growth. Champine adds that the Q1 earnings miss was a factor of adverse weather and will likely be reversed in Q2, and also sees Lowe's stock as attractively valued at 18-times her expected FY18 EPS estimate.

He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.
