6 Home Improvement Stocks to Spruce Up Your Portfolio

Home improvement companies are having a moment.

All around the country people remain locked up at home, staring at the same four walls day in and day out because of the pandemic. The desire to improve one’s home, the need for something new and the sheer monotony of remaining indoors all day have led to a surge of interest among consumers in home improvement projects. Do-it-yourself projects and renovations are on the rise around the country. Companies that can supply customers with everything they need to spruce up their homes are enjoying impressive gains as a result. In fact, all six of the companies on this list have enjoyed tremendous growth over the last few months — and the long-term tailwind of an improving housing market gives all six of these home improvement stocks an excellent opportunity to enjoy impressive returns well into the future.

Home Depot (ticker: HD)

Thanks to the huge number of homeowners looking to do a little renovating, Home Depot’s comparable store sales shot up 23.4% year over year in the second quarter. In fact, the second quarter was a blowout across the board; the company reported a 100% increase in digital sales, as well as a 10.1% increase in the average customer ticket. Online or offline, people are turning to Home Depot for their renovation needs more than ever, and buying more per transaction — that’s a winning combination for Home Depot and its shareholders. While Home Depot’s forward price-earnings ratio sits at a relatively high 24.7, investors shouldn’t fret, given the company’s recent performance and future prospects. A 2.13% dividend yield only makes an investment in Home Depot that much sweeter.

Lowe’s (LOW)

Unlike many companies on the market, Lowe’s has had an excellent 2020. Shares have risen nearly 40% year to date, hitting an all-time high back in August after the company announced impressive second-quarter earnings. That report included a 30.1% year-over-year increase in sales, as well as a whopping 75% increase in diluted earnings per share. Other highlights included a 135% increase in Lowes.com sales and an 11.6% increase in the average comparable ticket size. The one-two punch of more online purchases coupled with fuller shopping carts has propelled Lowe’s to new heights. A dividend yield of 1.47% sweetens the deal for investors, who should be excited by what the future will bring for this fast-growing home improvement titan.

Wayfair (W)

While brick-and-mortar retailers around the world have been forced to shut down and absorb the losses, online retailers like Wayfair have never been more profitable. Wayfair provides customers with all the home furnishings they’ll ever need, and customers have flocked to the site in record numbers — in fact, in the second quarter, Wayfair saw nearly 5 million net new customers join its website, which is more than the previous four quarters combined. All of these new customers contributed to a 83.7% year-over-year increase in revenue last quarter, which translated to non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) EPS of $3.13.

A Kitchen Cart to Spruce Up Any Kitchen

Contrary to popular belief, the addition of a center island to your kitchen does not have to be permanent or a huge investment. By using portable carts or kitchen islands, you can achieve the sophisticated look that is associated with a center island without having to do a major remodel or take out a loan.

In kitchens of yesterday, the kitchen table served as the center of activity in the kitchen. This is where people prepared the evening meal, socialized and dined. Today that trend has shifted to the use of a cart or kitchen island.

In addition to providing extra workspace, today's kitchen carts and islands offer practical solutions to storage and design issues. They can be either small or large, and can range in design from simple to elaborate. Use them to prepare foods, serve buffet style dinners, or to provide extra cupboard space. Need extra counter space? These arts are available in a wide range of sizes to give you that added space you need.

The design options associated with portable carts and center kitchen islands are endless, which means that kitchen carts can be incorporated into any style of kitchen. Whether your style is contemporary, country or formal, you can find the perfect kitchen cart to complement your particular sense of style.

Even if you are looking to capture the look of a specific decorating style, you will most likely find that those styles have been incorporated into kitchen islands and kitchen carts. Take for instance the Tuscan, Provence and cottage styles, these are just a few of the styles that you can choose from when selecting your kitchen cart or island. Some of these styles even feature elaborate pieces that have been been adorned with intricate hand painted or hand carved designs, which will serve to make your new addition not only a very practical one, but a very beautiful one as well.

Kitchen carts and islands come in wide array of finishes that can be handpicked to look as if they were custom made for your kitchen. There is also a large variety of work surfaces to choose from including wood, stainless steel, granite and butchers block.

The bottom line is: no matter what your style is or how much space you have to work with, you can find the perfect cart or island to customize your space without having to hire a contractor or invest in expensive cabinetry.

And they are very affordable. The pricing for carts and islands starts at a couple of hundred dollars. Of course, the price goes up from there and can get a high as $ 1,000 or more. It really just depends on what you choose. For example: A high-end kitchen cart may have intricate hand carved woodwork, plenty of work and storage space, a wine rack and a granite work surface. Whereas a lower-end kitchen cart may consist of simple elegant lines, a cabinet or two, and a wooden work surface.

So before you go all …
