The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Mike Olsen and Taylor Muckerman take a Foolish deep dive into the biggest investing stories of the day.
Great numbers across the board this quarter from Home Depot, with Q3 profit up 43% and same-store sales and average ticket also up. But at 20 times earnings, just how much further can this home-improvement retailer go? Mike and Taylor take a look at Home Depot as well as Lowe's ahead of its earnings tomorrow and whether these boats will be buoyed by the same rising home-improvement tide.
Then, Campbell Soup profits came in well below estimates this quarter, leading the stock to sell off more than 6% today. Was this just an off quarter as warmer temperatures depressed soup sales, or is it something far worse? Our analysts take a look at what's eating Campbell Soup stock today.
And finally, to the surprise of bears everywhere, prior to its earnings release yesterday, Best Buy was the best-performing stock of the S&P 500 for 2013. The company's Q3 profit looked good, although revenue came in a bit light. But is this stock-price run-up a lot of enthusiasm over a company that is fundamentally in trouble at its core? Taylor and Mike take a look at Best Buy, why it has been such a strong performer in 2013, and whether this is an actual turnaround or just temporary market excitement.
