The Home Depot, Inc. Research Report

On September 7, 2013, Bloomberg reported that Home Depot, Inc.'s (Home Depot)
CEO Frank Blake said that the increasing home prices in 2013 will spur
renovation spending; helping the retailer even as increasing mortgage rates
put pressure on the US housing recovery. Commenting on the expected sales
growth, in an interview at Bloomberg's New York headquarters on September 6,
2013, Mr. Blake stated, "As we look into the back half of 2013, we continue to
see the housing market improving -- not a blistering pace but a steady, steady
improvement." According to projections from Bloomberg analysts, rising
borrowing costs will squeeze property sales, which in turn could damp demand
for big-ticket items such as fridges, Jacuzzis and granite counters at Home
Depot - the biggest US home improvements retailer. The Full Research Report on
