Lowe’s Charts Are Stronger Than Home Depot’s

During Monday night’s Mad Money program, Jim Cramer told viewers that homes and remodeling continues to gain strength. That’s why Cramer continued to recommend Home Depot (HD) and Lowe’s Cos. (LOW) , among others.

Let’s check them both out.  

In this daily bar chart of HD, below, we can see that prices have been correcting sideways to lower since late August. Prices have been trading through the cresting 50-day moving average line but a downtrend has yet to materialize. The slower-to-react 200-day moving average line has a positive slope.

 

The On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line has been in a decline from the middle of August and tells us that sellers of HD have been more aggressive.

 

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) oscillator just dipped below the zero line for a sell signal but it looks like the MACD oscillator has turned upwards yet again to a fresh buy signal.

Can Lowe’s Overtake Home Depot’s Top Spot?

Where do you shop for home improvement projects? For many Americans, increasingly, the answer is Lowe’s (NYSE: LOW). Home Depot (NYSE: HD), a Dow Jones Industrial Average component and the largest U.S. home improvement retailer, benefited enormously from the recent positive trends in home improvement.

Analyst Brian Nagel cut his rating on Home Depot (ticker: HD) and Lowe’s (LOW) to Perform from Outperform, and lowered his price targets to $305 from $320, and to $180 from $185, respectively. While he still likes the long-term outlook for the stocks, he worries that the recent gains have made them pricey, while comparable sales will enviably slow from their pandemic highs.

Nagel is concerned that the “market is becoming too lax toward chances of a post-Covid-19 sales growth downshift at Home Depot/Lowe’s and potential impact on shares,” especially as the stocks, up about 26% and 34% year to date, are trading above their pre-pandemic peaks.
