Does Lowe’S Deliver
On Feb. 3, Lowe’s announced the launch of its own new home decor brand, Origin21. According to the announcement, this brand is intended to deliver “approachable, modern design for everyday living across the entire home.” Forbes reports that it is the first house brand exclusive to the retailer in the contemporary home decor market. The name was chosen to honor the year in which Lowe’s was founded, 1921.
Marisa Thalberg (executive vice president, chief branding officer, and marketing officer at Lowe’s), stated that “The Origin21 Program fits into our overall home strategy.” This is our next big step.
- Lowe’s Advantage Card offers customers discounts and financial options.
- Cardholders can choose from 5% discounts, special financing for six-months on purchases over $299, or fixed payments over 84 months at a reduced APR of 7.99% with a minimum $2,000 purchase.
- You should have a good credit score in order to get the Lowe’s Advantage Card.
- The regular APR for the Lowe’s Advantage Card is 26.99%.
Benefits of the Lowe’s Advantage Card include:
- 5% off eligible purchases
- Special financing for six months on purchases of $299 or more
Customers may not combine the 5% off promotion with the six-month or special financing deals. With the six-month promotion, the cardholder must make minimum payments on time each month and pay off the full amount of the purchase by the end of the six months. If the cardholder does not make minimum payments on time, then the promotion ends at 0% interest. Interest is charged to your purchase. The 84-month special financing offer is structured with fixed monthly payments at a reduced APR of 7.99%.
The company also offers new cardholders with certain perks. You can get a 20% discount for your first $100 purchase if you sign up before January 31, 2022.
You can apply for the Lowe’s Advantage Credit Card at any Lowe’s location. It takes just minutes to get a credit decision. Online applications are also possible. If you prequalify, you can apply immediately and get a decision just as quickly as you would if you applied in the store. The prequalification doesn’t affect your credit score.
After the card has been approved, it can be used for purchases at Lowe’s, up to a credit limit that is determined by the customer’s creditworthiness. Lowe’s cards are not accepted by any other retailers or automated teller machines.
Lowe’s doesn’t indicate the minimum score required in order to be approved for the Advantage Card. But it’s always a good idea to check your credit score before you apply. There’s a pretty good chance you will qualify if you at least have good credit. Experian estimates that this is 670 to higher.
The Advantage Card can be used only at Lowes stores because it is a store credit. You can also use it on the company’s website to make purchases. It can not be used to purchase everyday items at retailers like regular credit cards.
Home Depot’s Special Buy of the Day Offer Has a Better Selection than Lowe’s Daily Deal
Both Home Depot and Lowe’s run a 24-hour sale with items that change daily — Home Depot’s Special Buy of the Day and Lowe’s Daily Deals. With Lowe’s, I expect to save 25 – 40% through their Daily Deal, but the best deals I’ve seen are through Home Depot’s Special Buy of the Day.
That’s where I found this Ridgid three-tool combo set for 60% off regular price:
At Home Depot I still expect to save at least 25%. These are the deals we’ve seen lately:
Lowe’s does not take it lightly. Their recent Daily Deals still would have saved me :
Home Depot is the winner of this round. They are down only by 1. 3-2, Lowe’s.
The company is trading for a P/E (price to earnings) ratio of 15 when taking into account the 2022 consensus of analysts for EPS. While the valuation was significantly higher three months ago, it has declined since the company’s outlook improved and its share price fell. Paying 15 times earnings for a company that is growing at a double digits pace is attractive in my opinion.
The graph below from Fastgraphs.com emphasizes that Lowe’s is attractively valued at the moment. Lowe’s follows the blue line closely in the past. Therefore, the current situation where the stock is trading significantly below its average valuation makes it attractive. For the medium term, the growth rate of the company is only slightly slower than its average growth rate. Lowe’s, at its current valuation, is highly valued.
To conclude, Lowe’s is right now at the sweet spot of strong fundamentals, combined with what I believe to be an attractive valuation. Lowe’s is growing sales and EPS, thus fueling dividend payments and buybacks. The stock is trading at a lower valuation than it was historically, despite its impressive growth rate.
Lowe’s Advantage Card provides a 5% discount for eligible purchases. But there’s one catch. The coupon can’t be combined or used with any credit-related promotions. You can’t finance your purchase with a special financing deal if you don’t want to receive 5%.
The Home Depot Consumer Credit Card does not offer a discount, but there are rotating limited time offers for a variety of products and services.
Both cards offer a $100 welcome bonus.
Lowe’s Advantage Card is the winner, with its daily discount and special financing offers.
Register for Lowe’s Kids’ Workshops Free of Charge Once a Month
Kids’ workshop kits are a good way to get your kid thinking creatively and get them away from screens. And best of all? These kits are completely free of charge from Lowe’s as well as Home Depot. They have offered take-home workshops for kids since the beginning of the pandemic.
These workshops are run at different stores. Whereas Lowe’s requires registration for their kits one month in advance, Home Depot runs their program on a first-come, first-served basis on the first Saturday of each month. Lowe’s has a maximum age of 11; Home Depot does not have a limit.
Lowe’s allows you to take home multiple kits, so more family members can have fun with each one.
Lowe’s is back on the board, but Home Depot is leading 6-5.
Lowe’S Truck Rental Beats Home Depot By $40
Between Lowe’s and Home Depot truck rentals, one is the clear winner. Let me break it down for you:
- The Home Depot Load N’ Go truck gives you 75 minutes for $19, and $129 for the full day.
- The Lowe’s pickup truck gives you 90 minutes for $19, and $89 for the full day.
Lowe’s trucks are the best option if you need to move a lot and save at least $40. This is unless there’s a clear preference between driving the Ford F-250 (go to Home Depot) or driving the Chevrolet Silverado.
If we focus only on the price, Lowes leaps to an early lead. It’s 2-0, Lowe’s.
Lowe’S has a friendlier return policy; they don’t need receipts
Home Depot and Lowe’s are almost identical in their return policies. You have up to 90 days for a return and you will not be charged shipping. Home Depot and Lowe’s offer customers the option to return perennials and shrubs that have died for up to one-year.
So, it comes down to the little things. Like the fact that Home Depot updated their return policy to require a receipt or other proof of purchase in order to make any return. Lowe’s doesn’t require receipts.
To make a return at Lowe’s, all you need is your ID, the original credit card, or your phone number. If you don’t have any of those, and you’re nice to your cashier, you may still receive in-store credit for the item’s current selling price.
Lowe’s wins this round. Great. We’re tied at 7-7, and now I have to think of another tip.
CNBC reported that Lowe’s sales saw a rise in 2020 and 2021 as Americans turned to renovating their homes, taking on DIY projects and decorating during the pandemic. Ellison told the news outlet that the pandemic has inspired people to invest more in their homes, which includes both millennials who are buying their first homes and baby boomers who are fixing up older homes. The company chief stated that the new private labels, such as Origin21, and the improvement of repairs and maintenance will increase Lowe’s share of wallet among both DIY and professional customers.
Ellison stated that there has been an ongoing shift in consumer attitudes about the value of the home. Ellison said that the home may be viewed as a place of refuge and relaxation. It can also serve multiple functions such as a residence, office or school. And given the extension of remote work, we’re expecting a permanent step up in repair and maintenance cycle.”
Special Financing Offers
The basic special financing offers are the same for both the Home Depot and Lowe’s cards: no interest if paid in full within six months on purchases of $299 or more.
Be diligent about your repayment plans if you decide to take advantage of one these deals. You’ll need to have the balance paid in full before the six-month offer ends in order to avoid interest charges. Continuing to carry a balance after six months will cause you to incur deferred interest, which is a charge for all the interest you accrued since the date you made your purchase.
In addition to special financing offers, these cards offer project financing for larger purchases:
- Lowe’s Advantage Card: 84 fixed monthly payments at a 7.99% APR on purchases of $2,000 or more
- Home Depot Consumer Credit card: Maximum 24 Months for special promotions. Minimum purchase requirement may apply
Winner: It’s a tie when it comes to the six-month special financing offer. If you need to finance a bigger project, Lowe’s Advantage Card is a good option. It offers an 84-month fixed monthly payment plan similar to personal loans.
Lowe’s is in a highly competitive landscape. The company is a retailer, and it competes with other retailers both with physical stores as well as with online stores. Its size and expertise help it compete efficiently, but on the other hand, it still lacks an online presence compared to large retailers like Walmart (WMT) and Target (TGT). Lowe’s is well-positioned to compete using its edges, but it would need to constantly invest and evolve.
Inflation is the second danger. At almost 8%, inflation has reached its highest point in a decade. Lowe’s will be faced with price hikes from suppliers just as other retailers. It may not be able to raise prices due to its competitive environment. Home Depot (HD) has a lower debt/EBITDA ratio than other companies and is able to leverage more in the event of a price war.
The higher inflation is forcing the central banks to increase the interest rates. It may hinder the growth of Lowe’s in the short and medium term. Consumers use credit for home improvement and higher rates mean that credit is more expensive. If the higher rates lead to a recession, then growth will slow even further as the economy is adjusting, and housing prices may be affected as well, impacting the willingness of consumers to invest in remodeling. The company still expects good demand for 2022, despite the higher rates.
Rates are rising from their historic lows, but that is not all. Home equity has increased due to rising home prices and consumer savings are about $2.5 trillion higher than pre-pandemic levels, positioning consumers for continued residential investments. All these factors combined, make us confident that the Home Improvement market will continue to see strong demand for 2016.

As a dividend growth investor, I am constantly looking for additional dividend growth opportunities for my portfolio of ~70 dividend growth companies. While I am looking for possible additions of new positions, I am also adding to my existing positions whenever I believe a specific company is attractively valued, and its growth trajectory makes it attractive.
One year ago I reviewed Lowe’s (NYSE :LOW) dividend growth business and was impressed. Since then, the share price has increased substantially only to decline by 20% in the past several months. In this article, I will look again into Lowe’s, and try to determine how attractive the company is following the stock price decline.
My methodology to analyze dividend growth stocks will be used for the analysis of this company. I am using the same methodology to make it easier for me to compare analyzed stocks. The company’s financials, value, growth potential, and risk will all be examined. Then, I’ll evaluate whether it is a worthwhile investment.
Seeking Alpha’s overview of the company states that Lowe’s is a retailer for home improvements in America, Canada and Mexico. It offers products that can be used for remodeling and construction. It provides home improvement products in various categories, such as appliances, decor, paint, hardware, millwork, lawn and garden, lighting, lumber and building materials, flooring, kitchens and bath, rough plumbing and electrical, seasonal and outdoor living, and tools.

If you wanted to shop only brands that are found solely at Home Depot or Lowe’s, then you’ll find a wider range of items are available to you at Home Depot. Below are the department you can shop at Home Depot’s exclusive brands. I’ll also compare it to Lowe’s.

Home Depot jumps to a 5-3 lead.
Lowe’s isn’t the only company that has plans for 2022. On Jan. 27, the company announced that it was partnering up with Petco for a new store-in-store concept. The pilot program will bring about small Petco shops in various Lowe’s stores, which will allow shoppers to purchase Petco products and utilize some of the pet company’s services while inside the home improvement retailer’s own stores. In Texas, the first store will open in February at Lowe’s Alamo Ranch. There are plans to grow the original initiative to fourteen additional Lowe’s stores in Texas, North Carolina and South Carolina before March ends.

Even after the pandemic, remote work will continue to be a popular trend. Even though there was more uncertainty last year, this trend will not change. People will still work remotely for several days per week. It brings more focus to the home, and remodeling the house to fit the new needs is essential. Moreover, as people spend more time at home, they show more interest in designing and modeling it.
We expect a steady increase in repair and maintenance cycles with the expansion of remote work to some employees. Recall that half of American homes are older than 40 and will require continued investments to maintain them. In addition, approximately two-thirds (or a third) of Lowe’s annual sales come from maintenance and repair activities.
(Marvin Ellison – Chairman and CEO, Q4 earnings call)
Omnichannel is another growth opportunity for Lowe’s. The company is investing in its online presence, and it is essential for several reasons. Its peers invest in online capabilities and omnichannel services which translate into improved service. Moreover, it allows the company to be leaner in the long term as it requires less manpower to fulfill every order, and it will allow Lowe’s to improve margins.
Marvin noted that we saw a quarter of sales growth at Lowes.com and a quarter-over-quarter increase at 147%. In 2022, we will be focusing on three areas: expanding our online selection, improving the user experience and increasing fulfillment.
(Bill Boltz – Executive VP, Merchandising. Q4 earnings call.
The company is also expanding its business with professionals. Although the company has historically been focused on DIY, they have now created an all-in-one shop for professionals, which is creating a new type of business. In 2022, the company expects that 25% of its revenues will come from professionals who buy their materials at Lowe’s.
As DIY and PRO increasingly turn to Lowe’s for one-stop solutions, our Total Home Strategy is gaining momentum. Looking at the results for this quarter, it is encouraging to see that we saw broad and even-handed growth across all product categories. This includes DIY as well as Pro.
(Marvin Ellison – Chairman and CEO, Q4 earnings call)
Both the Lowe’s and Home Depot cards have an annual fee but offer different interest rates. Lowe’s cards have a variable rate of interest, with a variable variable APR of 26.99% to 17.99% for the Home Depot card and 26.99% for Lowe’s.
Winner: Home Depot Consumer Credit Card, if you can qualify for an APR less than 26.99%.

Get Paint from Home Depot at a Discount of $1 per Gallon

I know there are a lot of different ways to prepare paint, but for the purposes of this article I went as basic as I could: One gallon of flat/matte interior paint. By those metrics, Home Depot barely edged out Lowe’s for the cheapest paint.
