So they get a call from the Home Depot is around 3 30 in the afternoon yesterday, and, uh, they they're told that there's two people acting strangely. In one of the back aisles of the stores, so they show up. And according to officers, the two people were conducting an exorcism of the lumber. In the back of the Home depot to essentially protest logging and cutting down the wood. So why are you doing an exorcism on the wood? That's what that's what doesn't make any sense to me. So so now, so once it's chopped, it's devil would I'm not sure exactly how that works. Uh, it is unclear. I like the way they wrote this. It's unclear if any evil spirits were expelled. Police say the lumber I'll was selected specifically for the dead trees, the murdered trees, according to the two Um Didn't arrest him. I guess they just said they just trespassed him. Take all your little take all your little exorcism gear and get out of here. What is straight? This strange way to do that?.

That a good for getting after the challenge where the water setting but perhaps Metro green scape. Yes and their hi john. I did a quick search and it was Yard drainage charlotte and Several folks popped up metro. Green gapes was right there in the top so check that in in that way you can get you can get a call two or three of these folks in the in a. If they're not too busy you could probably get someone out there. Okay we'll give. We'll give them a try as well. One final question. If i might we've got a large deck in the back of the house facing the lake and maybe this will be the third or fourth summer on a on a transparent stain that we've put on this definitely weathered my wife and i decided we don't want to continue to do that. Treats that deck with staying all the time so we're just going to let it continue to weather but we treat it with two heavy coats of cedar side. Sure your recommendation. How long can we expect that That product to to hold up on our on our deck. You know they call it a lifetime treatment. But i see other language in their in their website. Sometimes that talks about ten years seven years I think you'll i think you'll be good for a good while it probably. I think it probably lasts longer on fences and like that than it does where it's constantly being pounded with Water and setting water Which is is is probably what happens because it it doesn't allow it to absorb it it. It just sits there so eventually you would think that it may. It may break down to a point. I can't imagine that it would ever wash all of it of the would he could test that though couldn't he just with a waterdrop tests You can you can always do that. And and see how its holding up some things that i've been involved with we. We treated an entire deck. One time with the that we clean. We know i normally don't get involved in that but it was for a long time customer and after we after we washed and and Finished the deck. We see we put cedar shield waited and then we. We painted the deck with Some type of sealer. Anyway we discovered when we were finishing. The the stringer on the stairs was rotten and we couldn't see it. It was buried in the ground. It wasn't done properly so having to tear the stairs off and rebuild them. Well we were cutting up some of the lumber to dispose of it and smaller pieces and you could smell the cedar shield coming out of the product as we cut it up so it was just another deal. Just made a believer out of me. Even more about the product and how much soaks in that deck was Treated with stain that we put it on there that that we applied the cedar shield too so i think it's it was deep. It was all the way through. You could smell it all the way through that board interesting okay. Well we We enjoy your show very much in always appreciate your advice. Well thanks for calling. John eight john one more one more thing to check the check. Home depot's website You can go on there and find seal crete. They make a heavy duty. I bought five gallons of it A while back because we treated a bunch of aluminum windows on a house with a But it's a heavy duty. And i think what is it. Has it has more solids in it. So you pay a little bit more per gallon for the product. But i think it might last longer and i think it has a pretty good shelf life as well. Yeah we use the original arisen for so they. They have a website that you can see all their products but home depot. I happen to find that product. So i bought that and it's pretty good pretty good stuff okay. We'll we'll check it out.

It's fifty miles from my house so but it's nice to be what a beautiful piece of property he has over there and it's a gorgeous lake. That's for sure awesome we. Let's take a dive into the cleaning stuff that we talked about. And some places that the the cleaning might be appropriate that we haven't thought about in the past or part of what what you and i've talked about for twenty six whatever years My way of cleaning. But something came up. If you think about covid and under i'm not gonna be gross but i'm gonna be direct right so thinking about keeping clean places that maybe look. I am not a germaphobe and norm. I like hey kovin. Nineteen and the world should cease to exist but i think you should be cautious and prudent. I think you should take some extra care where extra care is appropriate and one of the things that i was i looked at here. Think about. I don't know what's what it's like in your coffee maker at home. I know when we worked in a small office and didn't have those the little fancy machines that just kind of do the instant bruin stuff for you had a coffee pot there and people used it It didn't all. I used to go in early and i would clean the thing and you know it all down but if you think about it it it didn't get always. The best attention was hot water. It'll kill germs right. Sure but i think a coffee maker might be a place that you would take a minute and really give it a very thorough cleaning and depending on what your waters like do the cleaning thing to get the sediment like the vinegar cleaning whatever they talk about right so so clean and coffee pot a little extra might be a place to think about.

"Eleven ten. We'll talk home improvement topics that are important to you. It is springtime. We've got the pollen. I've never. It's it's just there. It's the harbinger of spring So good news but comes with a comes with messenger. That can be a pain in the fanny And i thought just taking a little bit of time david. It's there's not a lot you can do. I unless you've come up with tricks. I know that we've talked about. There's that we talked about. That are just jonah blank to get the little things right behind me and in the toolroom but there's there's a surface protector that we talk about That once you get everything clean put it on. It just makes it much easier to keep clean keep off it protects against mildew although for the mildew piece of we're always talking concrobium but it's time to get the screens out a out and then sometimes like in our house. Now they're gonna have to come out the windows and and just get pressure washed and cleaned. Yeah cleaned yeah. Yeah and we'll talk. Let's talk a little bit more about that because there some companies that actually have A screen cleaning equipment. Oh really yeah. It's kind of i saw one Not too long ago. But let's get in here bill. Good morning you're on the home depot home improvement. Show how are you hey. Good morning john. David how are you good Have a quick question for you We are talking about redoing. The bathroom complete bathroom remodel. And i don't have a clue how to even begin It's a big project i mean. It's not large bathroom but it's basically to Replace the tub with a step in to replace the toilet. New floors can thing you think and I tried to find contractors out that do turnkey that can help you with all that stuff. And i've just run aground not found anybody And then i looked at the ads for west shore and jacuzzi bath remodel. And i've heard good and bad things about them. But i'm just looking for some advice on if there's somebody out there that i can go to or some resource kind of thing to help with this project because i'm clueless. Let's get you turn your radio down while we're we're finishing this mind. It's all okay all right. So there's a lot of good options resources we we were typically send you to. Bill is is the neri directory. It's the national association of the remodeling industry. And you can go to neri r. i. Charlotte dot com. Nary charlotte dot com. And look for. They'll be all kinds of kitchen and bath Folks in there but for what you're talking about design build person is probably a good solution right then we have had really good Of feedback bath fitter does just. Tom's but re bath is a company that does the renovations that you're talking about. And then the home depot actually does bath renovations also and i'm not sure if the number is still correct things. Eight hundred seven nine depote. Ep t Or just pop into a store and say hey. Have somebody contact me about a bathroom renovation. And they they can do simple things like fixtures or more complex things like What you're talking about in a bigger a bigger facelift for the room. But i think david those would be three good. Who did i forget up. What about the jacuzzi bath remodeled in the west shore. So does so we don't i would. This is a complete presumption. Bill that and it's and it's not bad. News manufacturers will compile lists so jacuzzi is manufacturer. They will compile lists of of installers who they have either taken through a certification process. So that they know when they do a jacuzzi installation. It will be good And then they'll keep that list and those will be a resource So usually if you've got a reputable manufacturer and they give you an. I don't know if they're actually calling them an authorized installer or or just lead. They usually you get the job the technical side of the job done. I don't know that they have a good sense for. Hey they're gonna call you back when they say they're going to call you back in those sorts of things and i'm speaking totally unfiltered here. I'm not implying anything. I'm just sharing the feedback. That david and i get about you know all kinds of people. So it's re beth the name of the company here in charlotte. Re beth i think is a franchise. It's a it's a national organization is our e hyphen h. If i remember right david i think that's in there. I mean if you google them you'll find him but those that scenario would be I would feel more confident you talking to somebody who's got the whole picture and i know nothing other than counter the principle behind the jacuzzi right selection or recommendation to customer. I did the route with you. Know googling bathroom remodel and the problem was that what popped up. Was this litany of list and thing of people who just do tubs or just do tola or just do this or plumbing or whatever kind of thing and i'm not a contract negotiator where i know how to make all this stuff sort of fit together and work together kind of thing so that that does me. No good because the meantime do that. We'll just do it myself Now if that's the case. I would tell you the two places to go where i would have a high level of confidence would be nary charlotte dot com. Okay or the home depot.

See his health and then see how he fits in there and not just whether they'd want to sign them longer term but how much do they want to pay them and they certainly get a player here for the rest of the season that can potentially help this group.

Pittsburgh Houseplant Merchant Blossoms During Pandemic

"Now. This is a really cool story today. Two weeks ago we focused this episode this segment around a guy known as plant influence sir. The plant influence up toronto. And naturally we try to space topics out of bit When i was looking at all the notes for upcoming throwback thursday segments. I saw that this one was about plants i was like. Oh that's cool but let's let's push the plants back just so we're not like all plants all the time. But when i listened to the interview with abby some parts of which you'll hear in a moment. I realized she had a really good story that i just didn't want to wait for you to here. So this is the month plants. Apparently and after years of being part time abby opened her shop in january twenty twenty she opened a retail shop in pittsburgh and naturally was quite worried. Because you may recall. January twenty twenty was the last normal month of life for most of us especially anyone who is a public facing kind of business like a new retail shop but in her case she really ended up turning things around so she's got a great update along with some helpful lessons. You always hear this thing about you. Know find your niche and chief and mentioned sat in her by. She's like yeah. You always hear this thing but it's so important in a crowded space and she actually was able to find a good one so it's always good to look and say okay. Not just find your niche. But how does one do that. What are specific examples of people that have done that because that will perhaps allow somebody else to think. Okay what is what is my thing. Not just my broad area. But what is my specific plant expertise. Am i going to be the plant. Influence her going to be abby from pittsburgh or am i going to be myself. You know the best answer is probably to be yourself. But how can you make that marketable anyway enough about me. I learned a lot from abbey's interview. So let's hear some highlights from her. And i'll be back at the end to wrap it up. My name. is abby calcio knee from pittsburgh pennsylvania and i own jericho plant co which was previously featured in episode eighty three. I started back in twenty eighteen. I was working a full time corporate job in the supply chain in finance world and just wanted to do something in my free time on my own with something that i love which was plants. So i started in online houseplant shop. You can hear more about in that previous episode. And i did that for about a year and then in two thousand nineteen. Whenever we recorded that last episode i was just branching out into doing local pop up shops around town and finally getting my hands. what in selling in person instead of just online and having my husband come and help me because i needed extra help because they were doing so well Yeah it was. Just you know. A pretty stereotypical side-hustle just kind of finding time wherever you can find it so once. The lockdown happened in pennsylvania It was also very uncertain. And we no one really knew what to do however my space and the warehouse i open in pennsylvania technically allowed to stay open. Because i'm an ecommerce company. So i was actually set up pretty well for covid and the lockdown was already set up to ship customers their orders. And that's exactly what i did so honestly i don't know if i would have grown as much as i had twenty twenty. My first technical big year in business had it not been for people really wanting to have plants in their home so that they were all stuck at home and finding my business especially here locally. I was shocked at the amount of people who are willing to pay for shipping. And i was sending it to miles away because they could leave their homes. So i all my inventory was already on the website. I've still have that same shop. Affi- store that i had for the last two years so i was really set up for success. Actually which was incredible and then just sort of went with the flow for the rest of the year. Like i'm sure every other business owner has has done and i continued pop up shops where possible and doing sidewalk shops. So that was also a great way for me to advertise and shop. Affi- put in place a curbside pickup option into their interface. So from may onwards. That's how i've made most of my money as people buying online and picking up on my warehouse here in pittsburgh and i still ship across the country and that's still a great avenue for for revenue for me. I was fortunate enough to hit one hundred k. And revenue by november of twenty twenty which. I didn't expect to happen at all. I was very happy with that. It was sort of a struggle of mine. What's i kind of got to see. How the hub. Year risk going in terms of hitting six figures in nine months in a business essentially started the pandemic i. I'm pretty happy with the growth. That i've had and continue to see going into twenty twenty one one of the biggest challenges that actually any house plant or plants seller in general husband. Basing is a plant shortage across the entire country This is both in seeds and outdoor plants. I think demand is skyrocketed this year. Which i've obviously benefited from. However that's led to incredible shortages at the growers in florida and on top of that they are also dealing with the repercussions from fad hurricanes in the past five or ten years because the plant supply chain. It takes so long if you go to a store and buy a five foot tall tree just think of how many years it took for that plant ticket that large and if a thrower gets its inventory wiped out or damage that can be years of sales that are taken away from them. So my advice to you in. If you're looking to get into any sort of plant business would be to find your niche differentiate. Yourself and i know that is sometimes just something you hear about and you know marketing class or whatever but in a saturated market like online plant. Sales are or you know. Even locally you're competing with other plants stores florists and garden centers and lowe's and home depot You really have to differentiate yourself so. I focused my entire websites on helping beginners. Find their plants. Just sort of like a questionnaire like form type of thing you can go through my website and then everything is kept nice and simple on the product pages to really just get people started with house plants one of the biggest surprises and benefits. I am getting out of starting my own business is so i do the retail side and the wholesale side and retail to make people happy every single day by giving them plants which is so much fun and talking to everybody is so much fun but what i didn't know i would enjoy so much is talking to my wholesale clients and getting to know other people who are running businesses. Because they're in it with me. They no one else knows unless they're nba arena there few fighting the same fight. You are like the struggles. Of how am i gonna pay rent this month. All right my heating bill was really high. What can i do to reduce that. And and how. Am i going to get inventory and a consistent schedule talking about those problems and helping other business owners and learning from other business owners spend such a wonderful benefit of. It's sort of like your own little. Nba i feel like without having to pay all the money for an mba.

"Dripping down and we actually had some water. Spots are stealing and our master bedroom is nothing major yet. I think we caught it before it got too big. But there's still some water spots and i was wondering is it something a relatively novice person can fix on their own or do. I need to get a contract. No is is it a textured ceiling or a flat ceiling. Okay even better You're going to have to repaint the ceiling. And you've addressed the moisture issue in the attic. All the all the league is done and it's dried out and everything's ready to rock and roll correct. we're getting. We're getting a roof repaired okay. I've got something covering his spot or catching the water. This coming through okay. Goods installation dried out. I'm waiting on that to completely dry out but okay you can pull you can pull a section is it. is it blown insulation or batts. Okay yeah so you can take out you know and take that section out Getting rid of it. Because you don't wanna have chen issues with mold and stuff and you can put additional blown in insulation up in there. That's that's no big but once you get it all dried out and you're ready to go and the dry walls clean. It's a very simple thing. There's a product called kills. And it's a it's a pigmented shellac. The most aggressive version is a pigmented shellac. It's really strong winds. You can also get a latex version of it but fundamentally what it is is a stain blocker casey and the problem with water stains is they always bleed back through your paint and surveys paints through water-based paints thank you. And so if you put on this pigmented shellac kills. I think zinzer one-two-three has a a latex version of a stained blocker. But what you're looking for is a product called stain blocker and you paint the ceiling and depending on which one you use. Use the pigmented shellac. You've got to come back and repaint with the regular ceiling. Paint within twenty four hours. Because it does it does give a really hard a seal film that doesn't allow the the stain to comeback through. But it can give you some adhesion problems if you let beyond twenty four hours or cure beyond twenty four hours but So used a latex version. It works well and paint paint the entire ceiling out recommend in the entire ceiling with stain blocker. And then come back with your regular ceiling paint and tell your wife that you are the most amazing man. She has ever married. So i don't need to go cut out the drywall. I mean if it's not damaged.

"And you never we we were talking about advance I think towards the end of last year and. This stock I mean the business and the stock itself. It's been sort of this long drawn out decline going into the bear market back in March. Stock really got hammered for that short period in since then it's it's essentially doubled.

That's a good thing for investors of course, and I don't know about you. But I've been to Home Depot a few times over the last couple of months and it doesn't matter whether I'm going during the day at night weekend weekday. It does the parking lots always full. Wasteful. It's like a costco or an airport or it's like a costco at an airport hooked up. I mean it is just never not busy and that's I'm with you. I mean I've gone to Home Depot, a number of times. Since this since pandemic started and it is never not busy and I just think you know what I get it. I. Mean I do get it. It's it's a great situation to be in I mean weathered your home owner or renter. You've got stuff you've gotta get done and.

"A lot of a lot of this growth stocks that are at their day. Second quarter profits for Home Depot Rose Twenty, five percent. This was in some ways a surprisingly good quarter in terms of both profit and revenue for Home Depot although they did acknowledge and this is kind of what we heard three months ago at home depot, they talked about the costs. Their costs are going up for all the right reasons and whether it's a safety measures in their stores and warehouses or employees pay. Yeah. Well. I think when you look at both Walmart and Home Depot, the one constant that took away from reading through those releases Anna Calls. Is the priority on on their associates first and foremost I mean obviously you're looking out for all stakeholders and business doesn't really exist if you don't have customers but it definitely doesn't exist if you don't have associates to help you run that business in so much like Walmart Home Depot, big focus on making sure that they're taking care of their own investing in the stores investing in safety investing in their associates. I mean understanding that they already have such a phenomenal competitive position. They know they can afford to do that. They know that the market is going to accept that right I, mean, it's a reasonable thing to be doing. We talk about through this through this entire pandemic, the opportunity for a lot of these strong businesses to come out of this situation even stronger present to you exhibit A. and Home Depot because this was a really unimpressive quartermaine sales closing in on forty billion dollars up twenty three point four percent cop sales up twenty three point four percent us cops up twenty, five percent. Earnings for the second quarter up twenty twenty close to twenty seven percent day just are doing so many things right and they are benefiting from. The situation I mean it just no other way to put it right I mean when you have everything shut down and people have a little time on their hands they start they start doing stuff like home renovations and repairs and whatnot you focus on those projects that you didn't have time for before in Home Depot is. One of the leaders in the space when it comes to this with with both very strong do it yourself? Presence in the pro, the pro side of the business as well. So they're helping out homeowners like US and they're helping out contractors they're able to get back to work and you put those things together, transactions, tickets, both up double digits in the quarter. This is just a business really doing a lot of things right? Well, and if you look at the stock today, I mean anyone who here's what you're saying about home depot's quarter how impressive it was.

"Thank you travis. Thank you for listening. And congratulations. Holy cow did that ever occurred. Like you hear that when it's like oh I'm when I graduated from college. I'm going to go on an adventure. I'm going to backpack back through your. I'm GONNA hiked the Appalachian trail that one particular adventure never crossed my mind In any serious way. Yeah well when I was reading a walk in the woods By Bill Bryson great author of rape on many many good books that being one of them and A forgettable movie or a movie which apparently was made yeah. I think that's what we can say about the movie Yes lends itself more to literature than than Movie they probably had to insert some sort of the plot Into movie it was Robert Redford and Nick Nolte and they were like wacky adventures on hiking. The Appalachian Trail Yeah. It was sort of mismatched Buddy thing sure probably with a bear at some point at some point. It's like a bear is gonNA. I don't know why you're an ask that ever occurred to me that somebody might might listen to this podcast while doing that. And I was thinking that you know whereas I wouldn't indepth thought that I think that you know. The dulcet tones of of Chris Hill Work Better for the outdoors than say the competition. Like Jim Cramer perhaps chiefs little bit more of a jarring experience listening to him while trying to enjoy a walk through the woods although you know usable in many other media. I think Jim doesn't go with the Appalachian trail. The way you do is my belief you don't know what to say. I don't know how to process at one people ever referred to your dulcet tones before not in relation to the Appalachian trail now plush but you know congrats to Travis and hopefully he's got some new shoes. I gotta believe you wear out a couple of pair of hiking boots. If you're going the entire trail the two thousand miles I mean I just when I our colleague Matt Copen Heifer who. I don't know if you spend time with him at our annual meeting to know spend a little time with Matt Mattis someone who is a prolific runner and because he is highly organized matt also tracks his pair of running shoes. By how many miles. He's run on each one and once he hits a certain point and I think that point is like maybe two hundred fifty three hundred miles that sort of thing he ditches which is you know. It's like the tread wears out. I'm assuming the hiking boots Travis was rock and were more durable than your average pair of running shoes. But I'm guessing he wouldn't surprise me if you went through a couple of pair not if there L. O.. Beans right right you just by the way Appalachian trail you just divert off off the path walk into the original L.L. Bean in Freeport Maine. You're like hi. Can you hook me up with some new boots. I gotTA finish the trail. Yeah I get a new pair because you're L.l L. O. B.. I'm bringing these in. Yeah you gotta give me some new ones. That's pretty much how that works. Except they've gotten rid of that program. Well no it's now a one year thing as opposed to a lifetime. You know you get ditching. Your bad customers is a smart business. Move always is by the way. Quick Shoutout to Jared Lynn. Who is a listener? I mentioned back in October when we were talking about overrated underrated candy and jared had mentioned twin bing which is a cherry flavored nougat wrapped in a chocolate peanut covering that you can get in the mid West. And I think I'd mentioned on the show like we're not anywhere near where this is sold. And he very nicely put a few in a box set himself going to going to give us a try after the show today. How forty think you have to drive from here to get to the mid West I mean to get to this candy the Midwest version of the Midwest? Where do you think you hit travelling West from here Indiana? Don't you think Ooh I don't think you have to go. That afor Ohio did do we consider Ohio to be in the Mid West Shore. Okay not everybody does really what do they consider it. Not the Midwest. The rust belt. I Dunno some some some other part. We're GONNA get this wrong. It's the Mid West Real quick since the last time you and I were in the studio believe we were here with a third colleague League. Do you want to provide a sneak preview because we do have an apropos of nothing episode of market fully coming probably in the next ten days a little bit of editing. They will need to happen to this episode of editing. If that's not a brave you know what is attach. That's why we'll do the editing because we don't want the listeners to suffer through historically there's very little editing sometimes. There's there's little editing and other times there's a little bit more but there'll be some editing to this but is there one thing from the conversation you want to share with dozens of listeners. Why allies you know what I found to be the most Exciting part of it was my idea for a future offshoot of Apropos of nothing. which would treat? Are we going to go into this. I don't know I don't know where you're going fictional stories straight up episode of market market fuller of market foolery. who had a little bit of branding around it? So that people would know that these weren't real stories but stories ripped from what should be known to everybody movies which involve Stock publicly traded companies were Stock scandals of some sort or another there and how if those were real headlines and the facts were in the press that You know by the end of the movie. How would how would market market fully recover any example? I believe he used was for anyone. Familiar with. ESPN's documentary series. Thirty for thirty. Mm someone maybe it's college humor. Humor Collar Shimmer did sort of these short five to seven minute mini thirty thirties about treating sports arts movies as though they were actual news events so rocky four rocky. Rocky Balboa ends the Cold War and they have Max Kellerman being interviewed and other people who or actors but have actual news people sports media people talking about these things is the other real. Yeah throw up a link or something. I'll put that out on eh. Shout out to the actual thirty for thirty podcasts. And this is the reason why it occurred to me. So the thirty for thirty podcast which is great and Sometimes covers the thirty for thirty Movies Ed but also does some original audio content What had an episode on the spoofs of itself and it was a serious treatment of the spoofs very very metal of itself? Because I you know I I think they respect the work that went into this and the direction that the producers who who put them on college humor now have got some some bigger gigs I think in part extent from that. And and so there's there's a lot of behind looking at spoofs of yourself and curved that if there was something that could easily spoofed it would be market foolery who better to do it. That might be. Don't want anybody else to beat them to the punch. Say that sounds tiring. That's that's really sounds like a lot of navel-gazing for me which I'm not interested in no. It's all but but it would be humor and look if you're going to cover the way would movies which have on occasion. As part of the movie had some stock manipulation. There is education to get from treating that as real story and what we speculate would be the effect on the stocks from this kind of news getting eating out and if there are any recommendations for movies cover we've we've got a few market fuller and full dot com.

"Kohl's needs as a Christmas miracle and one of our listeners. I think probably need some new footwear. We will get to all of that but we're going to start with home depot third quarter for Home Depot. Ah this was literally. The prophets beat by a penny but revenue was lower than expected. Same store sales was I think. A full percentage point point lower than expected and you couple that with the fact that shares of Home Depot were at an all time high. Not a huge surprise that the stock is down about five percent this this morning. Yeah it seems like The message today was that the investments that they've been making into technology and initiatives to improve prove efficiency are taking longer to produce the benefits than was previously promised which was to get about one hundred basis points one percent of improve profitability ability off of this investment. So far they've Realized about half of that still think they're going to realize All of it over time you know the through next year rather than all in this year additionally as you pointed out same store sales is a company that is used to five five and a half half sometimes six percent same store sales over the last half decade so being more than three percent range. Not what the market wanted to hear and again if you look at where the stock was even with the drop today. The stock's up thirty percent over the past year. This is a business that performing doing very well. So this given the track record of Home Depot. I think if you're a shareholder you're probably not too worried about this. This seems more like a speed bump. I'm kind of quarter. Yeah well. They're a company that has produced phenomenal results by doing a lot of little things right. And they really haven't grown The store count so they have increased profitability quite a bit over the last A decade and they really have done that without growing stores. So are there. They're relying on that same store. Sales growth to supply most of the top line growth They're really not opening up new stores and getting more people come in charging them a little bit more And then improving on the margins and as I mentioned the same store sales it a little bit less than we've come to expect and the margins are not improving. At the rate that they indicated they expected to do so and additionally nationally a couple of other problems. Let's talk about the other problems because we were talking this morning. You had listened to the conference call and you mentioned a retail metric with which I am was unfamiliar and that was causing some problems for them at least in the latest quarter. Yes yes shrinkage shrinkage shrink shrink shrink shrinkage shrink so I you mentioned engined like yeah. They talked on the call about one of their problems. This quarter was shrink. Both both terms are acceptable. Right and I was like what. What is that That is the amount that a store loses to disappearing merchandise. It does not charge money for and it's known as employee theft. Not only any employee that a until regular usually shoplifting. Historically shoplifting has been the greatest chunk this and you can get Estimates that across the retail industry stories about two percent of of their goods through five different avenues. One shoplifting to employee theft three is I think sort of Bad Paperwork And four is I think the things failed ailed to be delivered that we're supposed to be delivered and then there's like the mystery bucket of like everything they can't exploit I can imagine for certainly early. Certainly have experienced this in grocery stores and I imagine it happens in places like Home Depot. And Lowe's as well where you hear a crash and something has broken so ah merchandise that is broken before it has been purchased that probably contributes to shrink as well. Yeah so shrink is I think they're they lost about thirty one basis points about you. Know a third of a percent over expectations In the most recent quarter And it's been trending in the wrong direction and they have They were asked on the conference call since they brought it up. You know that this was the major contributor to the miss on the margins for the quarter. What was what's going on with that? That is that the employees or other employees and management ascribed it to I didn't really point the finger at any the individual or group but they referred to as a large chunk of it being malicious rather than mistaken shoplifting. Thing or employee theft. I guess it would have been great but nine categories. Oh this person's hungry so it's okay yeah. It would have been great if they've just named one one employee Dave. We're not sure but we're pretty sure it's price he works in Atlanta and and and so There is a yes. The categorization of new wasn't nailed down and the ways in which the company responded responding to it. We're not Set forth but they. They've got initiatives. Well yeah and I mean I think that's perfectly reasonable that they would not necessarily outline. Here's the ways in which we're going to cut down on employee theft Why make that public no? And then they didn't specify that it had to be employee's look every retail operation of of any size and surly size of of Home Depot. Knows that's part of the business And and so whether it's employee's whether it's shoplifting whether it's your suppliers not giving you everything that was was supposed to be in a shipment whatever it is so they've got They've got top men working on it. They should be finding that always works out. Yeah shares Kohl's down eighteen percent this morning after third. Quarter profits in revenue came in lower than expected. Kohl's also cut guidance for the full fiscal year. Boy they look like they're in trouble amazing to me. That calls is still a seven and a half billion dollar company. This this is a long slow. You know crash I guess It it really. So they maintain about the same level of sales. They're doing about eighteen point. Eight eight billion over the last twelve months You compare that to you. Know Fifteen sixteen billion two thousand seven two thousand eight so really. They've given few more stores. They've increased their sales online But a a number of people coming into Kohl's dwindles all the time and and what they have done In response to that is by back. A lot of their shares increase their dividend But the bottom line is not really improving even with the rather significant number shares that they've bought back over the last decade They're basically just treading water on the earnings per share You know what they've done since since a decade ago. It's pretty remarkable that we just got done talking about Home Depot which has methodically improved its profitability while not not really increasing. Its store count. And you have Kohl's that is floundering and you know. Some of their new locations may work out but it seems like they need a complete overhaul if they're going to survive well they've so th they're getting more direct competition from Amazon. Of course live home. Depot's reposed goods can be acquired from Amazon but tend to be things that people are more likely to go to Maybe because of this excessive of Home Depot own getting people to think this way people go to Home Depot Kohl's people go to Kohl's but they go more to the competition and whether whether that's Amazon And they've increased. Goals is increased its Internet presence But really that's really just helping them tread water Buying back the shares increasing their dividend in after today's decline in the share price yielding about five percent which might be attractive attractive to some portfolio managers that need Some dividend you know in their in their portfolio. But you don't look at this and say this story that is likely to get better over time. Also we have a nominee for corporate euphemism of the year because when talking about their pricing strategy. Someone on the call for Kohl's Said we leaned into our value equation. Which I'm pretty sure means we? Yeah we cut prices. Yeah we sent some coupons out leaned into your the value at Quincy come on. That sounds like you really thought that one outlook was it. More than discounting and coupons. It was more of them usual. We leaned into those things. Quick shoutout to td Ameritrade. So you've done a ton of research on a trade but you can't decide decide if you want to go through with it. Td Ameritrade trade desk might be the secret to figuring it all out just go to TD ameritrade dot com slash trade desk to see how they can help gut check your trades that's td ameritrade dot com slash trade desk member SIPC Roku who announced a plan to sell up to one million shares of stock Roku who said they planned to use the money to cover operating expenses capital expenditures pitchers and to throw a really big party in Las Vegas. Okay not the third one but certainly the first two and this you know not surprisingly shares of Roku down on the news. Yeah they're issuing a million shares are up to a million shares or not saying exactly when but I would think sooner rather than later given that. This is a smart move. From capital allocation standpoint. Stock is up over four hundred percent for the year taking advantage of a much more expensive stock and what what is the dilution here will a million shares is less than one percent of the outstanding chair so they're trading you know less than one percent of the equity of the company a For one hundred fifty seven million dollars and I say that's probably a good trade good move. Yeah Yeah I think it gives them whether it's paying down their debt as they say that there are a whole bunch of things they might use this for you've added in just partying with it. That wasn't in the press. Release Ace again. If your Home Depot. Why are you announcing? This is our plan to stop employee theft. If you're Roco why would you publicly announce. Yeah we're GONNA throw a really big party. Probably the stock goes down more. If that's what you say you're doing right. I mean that's why you don't press release. It's a ten percent down. Yeah so this is just three or four four percent down as of intraday movement so far and with all the people who are Cutting the cord moving you know into additional streaming services Disney plus out being you know yet another choice with apple People are adopting Roku his platform and will continue to do so and so I think they've got continued growth ahead of them and This'll give them some cash to Maybe makes them more acquisitions.

"Our Twitter handle is at market foolery. And if you wanna drop us a question on either one of those platforms, please do so question from Ian. Grainger in Bristol, the one in England, not the one in Connecticut for you. Yes. Fan fans, Ian, Wright's what happens to an S and P five hundred ETF like V USA when it company leaves a new one joins. And he refers to the recent reports that tesla is being either as a potential addition to the S and P five hundred index so Enes asking does this update right away. Or is it the next quarter all of the two long? Didn't listen answer to that it happens right away? So you can turn off the radio. So actually. There have been the SNP changes a lot and found some commentary from senior members this appeal like Dr David Blitzer who listen two thousand fourteen was the managing director and the chairman of the index committee. So he's kind of in charge of the whole thing. They. They consider a lot of things when they're adding a company to the to the index, and it's not strictly the five hundred largest companies in the US. It's not that the company just kind of like, Home Depot management said. It's directionally. Correct. But it's inaccurate. Right. So I mean, the requirements to be in the SMP a certain size of four to five billion is usually the lower end of it has to have enough liquidity has to have a minimum of float of about fifty percent of the shares available for trading and have a short story about that. In just a second profitability balance sheet of part of an emerging industry that's becoming an important part of the market and so on. So what happens is the day before the new company comes in and replace a somebody who's going out either because they went bankrupt. They got purchased they've going private or they just dropped to be too small. Those are several reasons why company might go out. Indexes and ETF's index funds in ETF that are tracking the SMP tend to buy a lot of the new company, in fact, that the vast majority I looked at a couple of examples, for instance, Rollins the guys behind the organ man for control. A company happen to own shares of they were they joined on October first and the day the trading day before that was September twenty eighth twenty five point six million shares traded hands when the normal range is a million or less. Okay. So that's more. Yeah. So and Fortinet the same thing they joined on October eleventh on the tenth. They traded thirty three point four million shares when their ranges one to two and a half million on a normal day. So. So it happens right away. They don't they don't wait to the end of the quarter and. Getting back to the story about the minimum float, it's an actively managed index has a committee of members of from standard and Poor's figuring out who's going to be on why they should be added, and what companies should drop, but for instance, Blitzer related a interesting story in two thousand fourteen after Lehman filed for bankruptcy. AIG was being bailed out by the US treasury and the treasury bought like ninety percent of the shares. Okay. Well, that left only ten percent for the float. And they have the fifty percent rule, and they said, well what's going to happen? If we drop edgy from the index right in the middle of this horrible mess that the market is seeing and that's going to send a horrible signal. So they suspended that rule for edgy. And a few years later after the treasury had sold the shares back to the public in recovered. And and so the fifty percent rule came back into affect for them. You mentioned that one of the requirements. For addition the S and P five hundred is profitability. And I think that as much as anything is what people are watching with respect to tesla because it's not just profitability. It's the most recent five quarters. Yeah. There's that and also going concern. So they're not toured that Tesla's going to go out of business or bankrupt anytime soon, so but as far as I know is just rumors. I'm not sure what we're that stands. Before we wrap up just want to say, thank you to Stanley, not just for his service to our country..

"There were a bunch of cities on that list that I sort of looked at and thought well that makes sense to me, and I'll just sit like one one that was on the list of twenty right off the bat that I thought there's no way it's going. Be there was Los Angeles. And that's not a knock on Los Angeles. But I just thought well if their headquarters is in Seattle, I'm I don't see what the advantages are to putting another huge office on the west coast. There were there worse as you mentioned. Dallas was a city. I looked at it. And I thought well that would make sense Atlanta would make a lot of sense Chicago. Yeah. Many of those would make sense mammy. I'm not not quite so sure about. Newark New Jersey, but that's basically just outside as close to New York so near two or three in the running high crossed Miami off the list right off the bat because I thought Jeff Bezos is someone who is building a or having built for him a ten thousand year clock. I don't think someone who's building a ten thousand year clock is buying beach front property is putting Jarvis in Miami. No, what do you bought was a twenty three million dollar home in the DC area? Yeah. Let's move onto some earnings and Home Depot shares are down a little bit today. And I think you and I are both scratching our heads wondering why? Because this third quarter report for Home Depot, it was a strong quarter, and they raised revenue gyns for the full fiscal year. They raised revenue they've raised earnings guidance for the full fiscal they raised calms guidance for the full year. So real quick numbers. They got a five point one percent increase in revenue to about twenty six billion dollars. Just barely ahead of the streets. Estimates calms was four point eight with five point four percent in the US, which is nice and solid. Net. Income was up. Thirty two percent at two fifty one share that beats the streets guests of to twenty-six, quite handily. And then they raised sales calms guidance and diluted EPS growth. For the full for the rest of the year. One more quarter. And the shares are down what three percent or so. Yeah. And it's not like this style for for as as great as it is done over the last say ten years twenty eighteen has not been a great year for shares of Home Depot, no down two percent or something up up through last night before their earnings release. Maybe it had some has something to do with the housing market. I mean, we've had stories over and over September saw whereas the number five percents something like that drop in new home starts. And every and they'd revised downward August numbers. I do know that a good number of the analysts the first four for sure. And then a fifth one later on out of the dozen or so on the call talked about housing on the call and management was saying look is these were selling stuff and people. Blur moving up in in price points and in two newer products. And. And even in the bad areas like LA where it's really expensive to live their sales are growing. So whether it's higher housing prices driving people to improve their homes, or or I don't know. But they're they're models says, and they were they're very upfront are directionally, correct. But inaccurate model is telling us that sales are going to continue to grow. So we raised guidance. So depending on how granular investors wanna get with a retailer. Yes, we talk about revenue and earnings and that sort of things, but even when you go couple levels deeper with home depot's latest quarter, and you look at things like sales per square foot overall transactions the average ticket price. Yeah. All of those were up at Tikka was up three and a half percent. So I'm I'm wondering if at least some of the if not skepticism than some of the questions about Home Depot from these analysts were focused now. Not just on the individual consumers like people like you and me, but on the contractor side of the business because that's that's a healthy chunk of a home depot's business. I don't off the top of my head. No, what percentage that is. But I know it is a not insignificant chunk of their business. Now, I think that actually might be the larger part of their business, but they were saying contractors are growing their online businesses growing of what are they say forty?.

"I'm Chris sale with me in studio to explain everything. That's going on today is Jim Mueller. Yeah. Hey, Chris, we're going to get to Home Depot earnings. We're going to dip into the full mailbag. We will start with the big news of the day. And I think it's I don't think it's just big news in our neck of the woods. I think this is the big business news of the day. And that is Amazon officially announcing that it has selected New York City and northern Virginia. Specifically in northern Virginia. Crystal city for its to new offices. I personally will not be referred to them as headquarters if they just picked one city I and put fifty thousand employees, I'd say fine. That's that's your second headquarters, but I'm not going. It's like two two new large offices. And they also announced a. An operations base that they're opening in natural with about five thousand point good for national. No Seattle still remains the headquarters of Amazon. So yeah. Despite this whereas. Whereas. Long Island city in queens and crystal city just up the metro few stops mayor. So the Al why to? The earlier discussion was it'd be down in Austin or Dallas area right for the second one. Crystal city was pretty much chosen, and that would let Amazon have some exposure out in more conservative country and kind of balance their political leanings. But now they've got Seattle the the left coast. Right. And they've got the DC area northern Virginia, which is very all very liberal leaning and New York City again liberal leaning. So maybe they're tripling down on that. I don't know. You know, it's so now this process is over, and I think it would be worth are taking a minute or two to just sort of look back in and ask among other things. How do we think this went? And by the way, I I noticed on Twitter right before we started taping the phrase national landing was was trending on Twitter. And I thought well, what is that? And that's Amazon is apparently branding its location in northern Virginia as national landing. They're not even hearing renaming parts of the respectfully they're not here. And also, no one who lives in this area is gonna refer to it as national leading crystal city, and that's fine. There's nothing wrong with that. But now that we've gone through this whole process. What impressions are you left with? Because one impression I had when the whole thing started just about a year ago when they announced here are the twenty cities on our list. My first reaction then remains to this day, which was. That's way, too many cities when they when they came out and said we've we've come up with our finalists, and it's twenty cities. I looked at that list and thought I can cross at least five off immediately..

"I would say I, I would say. You're probably okay if they keep going like this last week on the show, we talked about Zillow. We should also mention red fin which reported their second quarter results. Recently, red fin and had a similar suffered a similar fate. They did, although not quite as I mean, they put up good numbers Redfin skews more towards the luxury market of real estate. And it's it's a different business too. So red fin for those who don't know is Zillow, sort of like search and ads for the most part, right. Red fin is really operating a nationwide brokerage predicated on search, but then they're hook, they're real hook is that they are going to save you a bunch of money because they have they offer a lower commission so you can save six figures on the sell selling or buying a house. But. So they had like a thirty percent revenue increase for the quarter, you'd think that would be great. But red fin on like Salaam gonna say is fairly candid about what's going on in the business, and they said, listen, the market. The last few weeks has been bad. I think they said while we one okay week in three crummy weeks. Good for them for saying that, but the stock was down or early the day of the earnings. And I looked and I read the report and I thought, oh, that's not so bad. It was down. I don't know, five, six, seven percent. And then on Monday and that it had flopped like twenty two percent. Everyone freaked out at the end of the day. So I think that this has ramifications for both Zillow for some reason didn't mention this. I don't know if they didn't see it or they just thought maybe we won't talk about it as well as red fin. It's it's going to, I think it's going to be a problem for the near term on until at least we get some clarity right now. The Redfin has been talking. For a couple of quarters about house housing supply being really low, and they are having a tough time being agents the themselves. They know this a little bit better than maybe Zillow having a tough time helping people find houses to buy. And so they've kind of doubled down on costs or putting fewer agents are putting fewer customers per agent and so on. And so this is going to be a tough business for a while, at least until we see what happens with housing, their housing prices are high and markets like ours and some others. And I guess apparently shoppers have finally said, we're not paying that well, and is, as you said, I mean, the the quarter itself for Redmond was good, and if they had maybe not had a conference call at all, the stock wouldn't have taken the hit. But it's, you said Glenn Kelman who's the CEO. Wasn't really pulling any punches, and and just said, very matter of factly look, buyer demand is waning. It's just that simple. Yeah, and I have a lot of respect for them. I own the shares I've recommended them and part of the reason is they are not big on hype. They when they go into a new business, they've been buying homes, they started the business small. They said, we're gonna make it a full time business, but it's going to still say small. They don't make a whole bunch of pie in the sky. Total addressable market estimates that kind. I got out of the Zillow call that just make me cringe and say, you're just feel kind of you feel gross to me. I feel like I'm talking to a us Carlson car salesman here. I just don't trust the management Zillow. I don't trust what they're saying Redfin seems more trustworthy to me. Well, and and we talked about this last week and on the show. I think one of the things working against Zillow is they made that acquisition of mortgage lenders of America, their track record on acquisitions. Isn't great. So I think part of what we saw with the sell off was Zillow was. A similar reaction which is essentially we don't trust your ability to make acquisitions works. And the reason we don't trust it is because you haven't really done a great job of it to this point doesn't mean you can't in the future..

"I'm Chris hill with me in studio for the first time in a long time. Thank goodness. He's back set, Jason, good to see you. Hello, I I was thinking of doing the Lenny and squeaky the squeaky. Hello. But I didn't know if I could pull it off and if I could have anyone would recognize it. That's that's definitely skewing old for our audience. We've got. We've got some earnings. We've got retail. We've got real estate's. Let's start with Home Depot which had a rough spring, but that's real estate and retail rate. They're exactly summers looking good for Home Depot. Second quarter profits came in higher than expected. Overall sales just north of thirty billion dollars and their same store sales. Impressive. Yeah. And it's odd the the real estate market isn't so great. And so a lot of the home improvement, especially the smaller outfits seemed to to be a little bit more directly linked that market Home Depot just seems to be able to keep. Selling stuff in any climate, at least for the past few years, you got a comparable sales store figure something like up eight percent and the guidance for the full year is going to be like five point, three percent. That's pretty strong. A lot of companies aren't doing that right now and Home Depot Kors is big enough to actually take advantage of that. The other thing that I haven't heard the call yet that is probably still working really well for them. We've talked about this is the online sale. They're one of the, I won't say few, but they're one of the better retailers out there equipped nowadays to to do the internet and the app thing. In other words, order order stuff from Home Depot online, rather than going to Amazon. And I think part of that strength is that I believe not too long ago. They said that about forty or forty, six percent of their online sales were actually in store pickup, which to me makes sense. There's a lot of things you don't want to really wait for in the mail necessarily, but you don't really. Be wanna walk around the Home Depot picking out. So you make the order and then you show up a few hours later and just drop it in your car. It's a lot easier. So these are that's a really smart way for them to expand their business. And you know, another billion or so bucks a year and sales that helps well, and they've, I've done a little bit of online shopping with them and I can tell you just from my experience they've improved, they have worked to improve the online shopping experience just in terms of because they're so many things that they sell. So just in being able to more quickly help people like me, whittled down the choices and find what you're actually looking for. I think I'm actually going to make an online purchase from them and the next week or so. I need a small band saw and like getting in-store seems like a pain. It's kinda heavy and not sure exactly which I need a separate blade for it. I can take care of some of those problems online. Just show up, throw it in the trunk of the car and leave. One of the thing I'm gonna call out from their quarter was the average ticket, which is something we don't talk about all that often. With retail or restaurants, but that's a metric that's important, and it's basically the average person in this quarter. What are they spending? And in the case of Home Depot, their average ticket sale ticked up a little bit to sixty six dollars. Yeah. And of course, if you can get that average ticket up, you have, there's a little less pressure to bring people in through the door. It's best if you can do both, but it's always good to see average ticket going up because if you're bringing in more people, but it's because you are, you know, throwing doorbuster sales or something you're tickets go down then that can hit you and your profitability. So they're just doing a great job. They really are in the stock again, they they had a rough spring. We saw that with with a lot in this space and the stock is still up about twenty six percent over the last year the when you look at the stock, does it look, expensive review. This thing still got plenty of room to run, especially given how they're operate, would thought get. I wouldn't have thunk it. I should have thunk it. I would..
