Positive:

- Well managed company, better than Home Depot
- Investor friendly
- Positive surprise last quarter

Negative:
- Stock already quite expensive
- Housing cycle could be close to the top (but who knows?)

It's one of the 2 major players in the home improvement big box store war. Stores are nicely laid out, clean and there is room to grow by adding more physical locations. They are nearing a tipping point. They could be the perennial runner-up to HD or they could start to really differentiate their brand. They could do well by starting to differentiate themselves from HD via customer service, services with contractors or employee initiatives. All that free cash flow could be put to some creative use to grow the brand. The next few years will either show them to be a leader or a follower. I think their philosophy should be to do what HD does, but do it better.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.

There will always be a strong desire to improve where you live. People will upgrade to improve efficiency, replace outdated items and make their home nicer or different in some way. Housing will continue to improve to meet demand for new houses which have lagged demand for 5 years. Smaller than HD but may grow faster because it is smaller. Dividends rule!

Changing My Caps to Reflect my investing strategy. I start with a simple screener trying to find undervalued dividend paying stocks. Then because I want to invest in things I understand I eliminate any businesses I have not heard of or in areas I lack knowledge ( Financials, Precious Metals). After that I check the Caps Rating and it gets a thumbs up if it is rated 4 stars or higher. Very few 3 star companies will get a thumbs up but occasionally i will go out on a limb with one.

Debt increased with stockholder equity declining. The firm has become more risky. In addition more of owners capital has been allocated to departing owners (share repurchase) than to owners (dividends).
