In the second quarter, our spring seasonal business rebounded, and we saw strong performance in the core of the store and across all of our geographies, Frank Blake, Home Depot chairman and CEO, said in a statement Tuesday morning. Blake also thanked Home Depot employees for their service in the face of this increased demand. Looking ahead to the remainder of 2014, Home Depot reaffirmed that it expects full-year sales to grow 4.8% but also said that based on the second quarters strong results, it is raising its full-year profit forecast to $4.52 per share, a 20.2% increase over full-year 2013 earnings. The company had previously said that it expected $4.38 in earnings per share, or 16.5% growth over 2013. This earnings per share guidance includes the $3.5 billion in share buybacks that have occurred in the first half of 2014 as well as the additional $3.5 billion in shares Home Depot intends to repurchase during the back half of the year. http://www.forbes.com/sites/maggiemcgrath/2014/08/19/good-news-for-the-housing-market-home-depot-raises-full-year-forecast/

The system uses geofencing, figuring out who’s home and who’s away by the Presence fobs and phones nearby. In a fairly dense San Francisco neighborhood I found it would recognize me as being “home” when I got within 20-30 feet of my front door. The app has been refined over the past six months I’ve been living with SmartThings. http://www.slashgear.com/smartthings-review-living-in-the-smart-home-17341453/

Lawrence Yun , NAR chief economist, says price increases are balancing out to the benefit for both buyers and sellers. “National median home prices began their most recent rise during the first quarter of 2012 but had climbed to unsustainable levels given the current pace of inflation and wage growth,” he said. “At this slower but healthier rate, homeowners can continue steadily building equity. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/home-price-gains-decelerate-many-140000973.html

PRESSURED FINANCES SHOW IMPROVEMENT The district’s pressured finances have weighed on the rating in recent years. However, after four years of operating deficits, the district posted a $3.8 million surplus in fiscal 2013, which was largely driven by one-time and ongoing expenditure reductions. The district projects a surplus of over $9 million fiscal 2014, driven by continued expenditure management and higher revenue, of which at least $3.3 million is expected to be added to unrestricted general fund balance. An addition of this amount would raise unrestricted reserve levels from $18 million (4.9% of general fund spending) in fiscal 2013 to $21.3 million (6.2% of general fund spending) in fiscal 2014. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/fitch-affirms-capistrano-usd-sfid-195500028.html

Motley Fool: Home Depot offers growth opportunity – Spokesman.com – Aug. 10, 2014

Her sister-in-law April Sharp agreed that it was definitely exciting. “We were looking for a toilet…chandelier, microwave…we were kinda looking at the furniture.” They say it is tough to find supplies at a price they can afford but with Habitat Restore open, they have more options in Lincoln. The store is the first of its kind in Lincoln. http://www.1011now.com/news/headlines/Habitat-ReStore-Grand-Opening-In-Lincoln-270620191.html

The checks in the mail are reported as accounts receivable on the balance sheet. Its a red flag when receivables are growing faster thanrevenue. http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2014/aug/10/motley-fool-home-depot-offers-growth-opportunity/
