Thursday's Trending Tickers: LOW, TD, and TJX

Two stocks in the retail sector are trending today. In the do-it-yourself home improvement sector, Lowe’s (LOW) attracted strong trading volume.

Lowe’s posted comparable sales falling by 4.1%. It increased shareholder value by buying back 3 million shares in the quarter, spending $743 million. It reiterated total sales of $84 billion to $85 billion in 2024. At a 2024 EPS of $12.00 - $12.30, LOW stock trades at a forward P/E of 17.97 times.

Plagued by a hefty fine for money laundering, watch TD Bank (TD) today. The company will post quarterly results. Expect the Canadian bank to shed light on its internal investigation linked to the laundering of illegal drug sales.

In the retail sector, TXJ Companies (TJX) reaffirmed its strong value for investors. The company posted comparable sales growth in the first quarter. Customers appreciate the value proposition offered at its stores. Consumers are choosy with how they spend their disposable income. Fortunately, TJX’s Home Goods and TJX Canada showed sales strength of 4% in the quarter.

For FY 2025, TJX expects to increase comparable store sales by between 2% and 3%. It will earn $4.03 - $4.09 a share. The higher EPS guidance should push the stock price to new highs in the coming weeks.
