Inside Home Depot’s Q3 2019 Financial Results

  • Sales: $27.2 billion
  • Net Earnings: $2.8 billion
  • Key Takeaway: Because sales were lower than anticipated, Home Depot lowered its sales projections for fiscal year 2019.

“Our third-quarter results reflected broad-based growth across our business, yet sales were below our expectations driven by the timing of certain benefits associated with our One Home Depot strategic investments,” says Home Depot president and CEO Craig Menear.
