Specifically, The Home Depot (HD) rose 3.6%, Lowe’s Companies (LOW) rose 3.91% and Lumber Liquidators Holdings (LL) rose 3% while Builders FirstSource (BLDR) fell 2.63% (but its still up 81.4% since the start of the year). However and while Lumber Liquidators Holdings (LL) and Builders FirstSource (BLDR) have already reported earnings, The Home Depot (HD) and Lowe’s Companies (LOW) have not and both were downgraded last week by Janney Capital based on “valuations, moderating sales trends, the weaker macro backdrop and more difficult comps.” Moreover, Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) is busy building distribution centers and could decide to make a big push into the home improvement market place while sales of building materials fell 1.6% from May to June.
