Sean Stannard-Stockton Profiles Home Depot on the Business Breakdowns Podcast

2 November 2022 | by Ensemble Capital

The Business Breakdowns podcast offers deep dive interviews that profile a single company. The podcast is one of the best investor resources to quickly get up to speed on how a particular company operates. So we were pleased to have Ensemble’s CIO on the podcast to discuss Home Depot.

In the podcast, Sean discusses:

  • The company’s focus on serving professional contractor customers and why this end market benefits from strong competitive advantages.
  • How the company has been able to grow revenue and earnings so dramatically, despite not increasing their store count in over a decade.
  • Why the company has built a robust ecommerce business, yet their customers insist on mostly coming to the store to pick up online orders rather than have them delivered.
  • And why in the early days of the company, the founders were outraged to find that employees had mopped and shined the floor before a grand opening and insisted that they quickly scratch the floors up and throw some sawdust around.
