Home Depot's operating margin remained steady at 34%. The balance sheet holds $1.4 billion of cash and $9.7 billion of debt.

Stock: Home Depot has gained 62% during the past year, more than the Dow. The stock trades at a price-to-projected-earnings ratio of 15, a 12% discount to its peer-group average. A PEG ratio, a measure of value relative to expected growth, of 1.2 indicates costly shares. A ratio above 1 signals a premium.

Intel holds $14 billion of cash, equating to a quick ratio of 2.1, and $2.2 billion of debt, translating to a debt-to-equity ratio of 0.1.

Stock: Intel has increased 54% in the past 12 months, outpacing the Dow, but trailing the S&P 500. The stock sells for a price-to-projected-earnings ratio of 12, a 26% discount to the industry average, evident in the chart above. Its PEG ratio of 0.2 reflects a discount relative to expected growth.
