Home Depot Q1 Earnings: Analyst Bullish Ahead of Earnings Call

In pre-market trade on Tuesday, Home Depot stock (HD:NYE) shares declined after the home improvement retailer offered modest guidance for FY23. The management now anticipates that sales and comparable sales would be flat year-over-year in FY23 and that diluted EPS will decrease by a “mid-single digits” percentage.

The company announced fourth-quarter earnings of $3.30 per share, up from $3.21 per share at the same time of the prior year, and exceeding analysts’ consensus estimate of $3.28 per share.

However, sales climbed by only 0.3% year-over-year to $35.8 billion, falling short of the $35.9 billion forecast by analysts. Moreover, comparable sales decreased by 0.3% annually.

The retailer increased its quarterly dividend by 10% to $2.09 per share, which is equivalent to an annual payout of $8.36 per share. On March 23, 2023, the dividend will be paid to shareholders of record as of March 9, 2023.
