They are interesting in and of themselves, but they also can tell you a bit about the housing market. Glaser: We do like to look at both of these, because it does give you a snapshot of what people are thinking about the housing market. Are they doing renovations? Are they thinking of sprucing up a home to sell? Or maybe they are doing some work on a home that they've recently purchased. Home Depot and Lowe's both posted pretty good sales growth.
