Home Depot

The home improvement products retailer is scheduled to report its fourth-quarter results on Feb. 21. Analysts, on average, expect earnings of 42 cents a share on $15.46 billion in revenue.

"Unlike most retail categories that suffered from warm weather this winter, we believe home improvement stands to benefit as consumers spend more time outdoors," JPMorgan analysts wrote in a Jan. 20 report. "While snow removal and heating products were likely hurt, we believe this was outweighed by repair/maintenance projects that require warmer (and snowless) weather and HD continues to benefit from its operational transformation (vs. LOW)."

Shares of Home Depot hit a 52-week high on Tuesday of $45.58. The stock's 52-week low of $28.13 was set on Aug. 9.

Home Depot has a forward P/E of 16.51X. The average for home improvement retailers is 18.67X. Lowe's (LOW) has a lower forward P/E of 15.07X.

Of the 30 analysts who cover the company, 17 rated it a buy. Thirteen gave Home Depot a hold rating.

TheStreet Ratings gives Home Depot an A+ grade and has a $54.08 price target on the stock. Shares have increased 8.28% year to date.

The welding products manufacturer is scheduled to report its fourth-quarter results on Feb. 17. Analysts, on average, anticipates earnings of 63 cents a share on $698.38 million in revenue.

Shares of Lincoln Electric hit a 52-week high on Tuesday of $45.74. The stock's 52-week low of $26.84 was set on Oct. 4.
