Home Depot
(NYSE:HD) came out with guns blazing as it shot through analyst expectations on both the top and bottom lines. Although growth slowed from its torrid pace from the second quarter, it's strategic refocus on its orange box stores here in the US and revamp of its supply chain continue to impress. Will the home improvement industry leader further leverage its size advantage to garner additonal market share gains? Will their efforts to maximize efficiencies drive margin growth and bolster returns on capital? Will industry rival, Lowe's (NYSE:LOW), use their powerful distribution network to capitalize on favorable conditions as they report before the opening on Nov. 20?
