Lowe's (LOW +3.4%) gets a lift from ISI Group on the firm's view that margins could go from 7% to 10% as productivity improves. A normalization in sales would also allow the retailer to support share price with new buybacks and dividend hikes. Shares of Lowe's are rated a Buy by ISI, although it still sees Home Depot (HD +0.2%) as the more attractive stock in the home improvement space.
