Just like Home Deport, Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW), the nation’s second-largest home improvement retailer, also gets a boost from hurricane preparation and repairs.

Indeed, Lowe’s said rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy gave results a big boost in the final quarter of the year, helping it top Wall Street’s earnings forecast by 3 cents a share. Revenue likewise came in higher than expected.

Anticipation of robust hurricane-fueled results helped Lowe’s shares clobber the broader market during last year’s hurricane season, beating the S&P 500 by more than 16 percentage points.
