The two home improvement retail giants in the U.S. have been on a steady rise in the last five years. Comparison between the two top players of the market - Home Depot (HD) and Lowe’s (LOW) - is inevitable, and for some reason there is a lingering perception that Lowe’s is not as good as Home Depot.

Shares of Home Depot and Lowe's were slammed Thursday, along Whirlpool, after Amazon threatened to take on the appliance market in a much bigger way in a deal with Sears Holdings.

With both companies aggressively covering digital, the moat is too wide for a third player to disrupt their growth.

The further Home Depot’s surge continues on the online front, Lowe’s will be pushing as hard in that direction to keep the distance between the two on the e-commerce side to a minimum, and with both the companies pushing deeper into the e-commerce domain, the space for a third company to enter becomes a whole lot smaller, and the entire effort much less profitable.
