Unfortunately for investors in HD stock, shares are slipping despite a solid quarter. Home Depot reported diluted earnings per share of $3.21 on revenue of $35.7 billion. Both of these are better than the $3.17 per share and revenue of $34.87 billion that analysts were expecting.
If that’s the case, then why is HD stock falling today? It looks like the company’s profitability is the problem. It didn’t reach analysts’ estimates and there are concerns about the effect inflation will have on the company.
With the most recent HD earnings report out, analysts are weighing in with new price predictions for the company. But first, note that the consensus rating for HD shares is buy with the consensus price target sitting at $424.90.
