Nomura Securities maintained a Neutral rating on Home Depot (NYSE: HD) and raised its price target to $63.00 (from $55.00).

"We have remained Neutral on HD shares despite strong execution and market share gains, and the strong year-to-date performance for HD," said analyst Aram Rubinson.

"The story is becoming a bit of a virtuous loop whereby HD adds debt in order to buy shares so that it can keep up with increasing levels of profitability. We see the story as a compelling one, though it is not lost on the market with valuation nearing 10x 2013 EBITDA estimates," added Rubinson.

He sees bigger opportunity in Sherwin-Williams (NYSE: SHW) and Lowe's (NYSE: LOW).
