Every time there is a disaster home improvement stocks increase and this is well documented. The increase in Lowes' and Home Depot stock reflects this.<quoted text>
Typical of Jason. Offer a dumb opinion on something you have no actual knowledge of.
Wouldn't be because they had reported great earnings and outlook yesterday??
All these earnings were the 1st. quarter. Long before Moore.
Pretty unsophisticated thinking that a one city incident could influence huge chains like HD and LOW. They'll end up donating as much as they sell, just for the PR.
Lowe's earning report came out today-
"Sales for the quarter decreased 0.5 percent to $13.1 billion from $13.2 billion in the first quarter of 2012, while comparable sales for the quarter decreased 0.7 percent."
