Home Dept. HD
I'm surprised that Home Dept stock is flat the last 3 days as Hurricane Matthew could run up most of the east coast. The area is heavily populated and the chance of property damage is high.
Also here in So. Cal with all the talk about a very large earthquake happening soon I would think HD stock would get a bump.

2. Home Depot uses the JIT model
Ie, Just In Time.
They count on the inventory being replenished as it is depleted. That system cannot react to an emergency situation.
And the reason they went to JIT was to reduce the cost of stocking for the peak.
Their supply line ain't keeping up.
