Jaime M. Katz, CFA Senior Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Jaime M. Katz, CFA |

Lowe's is the second-largest home improvement retailer globally, set to capture more than $97 billion in sales in 2022. With continued focus on retail fundamentals (merchandising excellence, operational efficiency, supply chain improvements, and customer engagement), Lowe's has been able to better leverage expenses while maintaining its low-cost position. The firm retains some of the cost savings it achieves and passes the rest on to its customers through everyday low prices. These competitive advantages support our wide economic moat rating.

Company Profile LOW

Business Description

Lowe's is the second-largest home improvement retailer in the world, operating 1,969 stores and servicing around 230 dealer-owned stores throughout the United States and Canada. The firm’s stores offer products and services for home decorating, maintenance, repair, and remodeling, with maintenance and repair accounting for two thirds of products sold. Lowe's targets retail do-it-yourself (around 75% of sales) and do-it-for-me customers as well as commercial and professional business clients (around 25% of sales). We estimate Lowe's captures a low-double-digit share of the domestic home improvement market, based on U.S. Census data and management’s estimates for market size.
