Is It Time to Buy Home Depot Stock?

Home Depot (NYSE: HD  ) caught some great investing press recently, making the cover of Barron's magazine under the not-so-subtle headline "Buy Home Depot." The article, by Avi Salzman, argues that shares could return 25% to investors over the next year while rising to $95 apiece.

In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos goes over a few highlights from the piece, including the two big catalysts that Barron's believes could send Home Depot stock higher. First, the recovery in spending in the housing market looks primed to continue despite rising interest rates, Demitrios notes. Second, Home Depot stands to keep grabbing market share from struggling rival Sears (NASDAQ: SHLD  ) , which still has plenty of sales left to lose in the appliance industry. Overall, while a 25% price gain target is anyone's guess, it's hard to argue that Home Depot isn't executing extremely well right now, or that shares don't look cheap at just 20 times trailing earnings.
