Lowe's Trajectory to Higher Operating Margin Levels Intact Thanks to Improving Productivity

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Jaime M. Katz |

Lowe's is the second-largest home improvement retailer globally, set to capture $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 costs 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 in the United States, and is in the process of selling its Canadian locations (RONA, Lowe’s Canada, Réno-Dépôt, and Dick’s Lumber), set to close at the beginning of 2023. 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.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses.
