Home Depot had a great quarter. Time to get long a solid retailer, and the leader in their area of expertise.
they sell very useful stuff for working inside or outside houses

There is only two Home Builder stores left Depot and Lowes
Home depot is well run and continues to increase their dividend. Investors can expect continued returns over the years. Only significant risk would be a large downturn in housing or a negative population growth rate in the US.

Great company, awful price. Even if we graciously say that we're midway through an economic cycle, 25x free cash flow for a mature retailer is simply too much.
DIY business booming with self home renovations taking off rather than relocating.
As the housing market recovers you will see more home construction which will benefit Home Depot. Lead by solid executive management, I see Home Depot as a long-term winner.

Home depot is a leader within its industry with only one sole "main" competitor (Lowes). It is considered to be the world's largest home improvement store (as of fiscal year ended 2/2/14).The company offers a comprehensive mix of products tailored to customers looking to do work for themselves all the way to individual contractors. Although HD faces competition from similar retailers within the different segments that it serves; it is still considered a "one stop shop" and this is part of its competitive advantage. Its brand is also paramount.HD has been placing strong emphasis on customer service by rolling out different programs to facilitate the purchase of products and ensure prompt services via "BOPIS", "BOSS" and the soon to be introduced "BODFS". As per Euromotor international; the company has a market share of 18.7% in the industry in comparison to 15.2% for lowes. The number is said to continue increasing ahead of Lowes.Current dividend yield is at: 2.40% which is also a nice bonus.
