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.

1. You might do better with a pickup load of plywood. You could stand on the corner

and raise the price to your heart's content.

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.

4. Are plywood prices rising in Florida?

I would think the stock price of such a nationwide corp would move that much due to a regional event.
