Hi friends,

We need to talk. All we want is commitment but the market's sending mixed messages this week...

  • Dow Jones Industrial Average: 27,931.02ย +34.30 (+.12%)

  • S&P 500: 3,372.85ย -.58 (-.02%)

It's the battle of the bands this week. By bands, we mean home improvement companies. Let's take a peek specifically at Home Depot:

  • Last 4 earnings report:

  • 2019Q2: Beat

  • 2019Q3: Beat

  • 2019Q4: Beat

  • 2020Q1: Miss

  • 3-year EBITDA

  • 2017: Improved from 2016

  • 2018: Improved from 2017

  • 2019: Improved from 2018

  • Technicals:

  • 3-month: ~ +14.25%

  • 1-year: ~ +38.36%ย 

  • 5-year: ~ +139.05%ย 


We'll see which company is more metal this week. For the year, Home Depot retraced past its peak right before the Coronavirus dip, going up by another 18% from the previous high. Not a lot of blue chip, dividend paying stocks have done this. Keep an eye on the earnings for HD this week and make your moves accordingly (if they do well vs. if they face plant). Fundamental analysis is nice and all, but covered calls are more fun. Learn all about it in our Level 1 Courses!

Until next time!
