Shares of Home Depot have outperformed the Zacks Retail Building Products industry in the year to date period (+28% vs. +23.7%). The Zacks analyst believes that Home Depot has been witnessing significant benefits from the execution of its One Home Depot plan, which focuses on expanding supply chain, technology investments and digital enhancements.

The company has also been gaining from growth in Pro and DIY customer categories as well as the digital momentum. Increased penetration of lumber products and continued pressure from higher transportation costs weighed on its Q2 gross margin though. In the home improvement retailing business, Home Depot has been facing stiff competition from Lowe’s, Sherwin-Williams Company and other home supply retailers.

T-Mobile shares have gained +1% over the past year against the Zacks National Wireless industry’s loss of -1.5%. The Zacks analyst lauds the company’s efforts to expand its 5G network to bring fast and affordable wireless service across the country and believes that it will prove to be greatly beneficial for it in the long run.

T-Mobile’s Extended Range 5G covers 305 million people across 1.7 million square miles. The superfast Ultra Capacity 5G covers 165 million of those people and is expected to reach 200 million by the end of 2021. Fiercely competitive and an almost saturated U.S. telecom market, low-priced plans for consumers and small enterprises, and high costs related to promotional activities to lure customers from rivals have been denting its margins.

Shares of ConocoPhillips have gained +49.6% over the past six months against the Zacks U.S. Integrated Oil industry’s gain of +42.7%. The Zacks analyst believes that a huge inventory of drilling locations in the Eagle Ford Shale will likely contribute to ConocoPhillips’ production.

With an inventory of 4,700 undrilled Permian wells, the firm’s production outlook remains bright. The company recently announced an agreement to purchase all of Royal Dutch Shell’s assets in the prolific Permian. The company aims to broaden its presence in the Permian basin with this deal.

Zacks Names "Single Best Pick to Double"

From thousands of stocks, 5 Zacks experts each have chosen their favorite to skyrocket +100% or more in months to come. From those 5, Director of Research Sheraz Mian hand-picks one to have the most explosive upside of all.

You know this company from its past glory days, but few would expect that it's poised for a monster turnaround. Fresh from a successful repositioning and flush with A-list celeb endorsements, it could rival or surpass other recent Zacks' Stocks Set to Double like Boston Beer Company which shot up +143.0% in a little more than 9 months and Nvidia which boomed +175.9% in one year.
