Home Depot Inc (NYSE:HD) lost 0.80% in New York deals as the recent US hurricanes boosted quarterly sales.

Revenue from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma added  around US$282 million to the sales total for the third quarter, the company said, as customers carried out home repairs after the damage.

In total, revenues were US$25.03bn against estimates of US$24.5bn.

But same-store sales climbed 7.9% compared with an increase of 5.8%, which analysts had expected.

Earnings per share (EPS)  was US$1.84, excluding items, compared with a forecast of US$1.82 per share.

Though this quarter was marked by an unprecedented number of natural disasters, including multiple hurricanes, wildfires in the West, and earthquakes in Mexico, the underlying health of our core business remains solid," chief executive Craig Menear said.

The retailer also lifted its full-year sales and earnings outlook, based on its projected "hurricane recovery" sales.
