Home Depot's New High

The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Mike Olsen and Taylor Muckerman take a Foolish deep dive into the biggest investing stories of the day.

But at 20 times earnings, just how much further can this home-improvement retailer go? In this segment, Mike and Taylor take a look at Home Depot as well as Lowe's ahead of its earnings tomorrow and whether these boats will be buoyed by the same rising home-improvement tide.
