Home Depot

This week, we'll plug through a series of retail businesses that are legally required to publish their financial information ... you'll be able to see what "winning" looks like.

Below, I've outlined the results for Home Depot.

Tell me if you can see where the housing bubble popped.

And, tell me if you think this is a well-run business or not.


That's not bad, it is?

In fourteen years.
  • 10 winning seasons.
  • 8 playoff caliber seasons.
  • 0 championship caliber seasons.
  • 7 straight years of improved performance.
Kudos to Home Depot!

Look at how long it takes to rebuild a business after a catastrophe. Three straight years of 6-10 records at the peak of the financial crisis are then offset by 8-8 and 9-7 and 10-6 and 10-6 and 11-5 and finally 11-5. It takes a long time to dig out from a financial hole, doesn't it?
