    POOL just disintermediated their retail channel partners with this move. What would you do if you ran a retail store and you bought product from a supplier for years...and then all of a sudden that supplier becomes your retail competitor? You would look for another supplier...enter HAYW or someone else. Also, why haven't they disclosed the price paid for Porpoise...did they overpay? Porpoise had revenue in the range of $200M to $390M...so the big question is what multiple did POOL pay? POOL prior to this acquisition had ~600M in debt and only ~$89M in cash...so no way this was a cash deal. So the price POOL paid for Porpoise will be revealed soon enough when they provide updated debt amounts. Overall this seems like not such a good move...they are attempting to buy additional revenue, disintermediating some of their existing customer base, and taking on additional debt. Also Pinch a Penny does not sell online...so they aren't picking up an online channel. This just doesn't seem so smart.

    Don't own a pool, but rather just buy POOL 😉

    Stunning, industry-shaking news today regarding Pool Corp's acquisition of Porpoise Pool and Patio, parent company of the ubiquitous Pinch-a-Penny stores throughout the SE, particularly in Florida, and the entire supply chain, Sun Wholesale, for the chain. This is an enormous deal and marks the entry of Pool Corp into franchising and retail.

    Can anyone explain why the stock did poorly today after crushing earnings numbers. Thank you in advance.

    Hi all. The cold snap in the south has resulted in millions or more in damage to pool equipment. Parts are sold out in the south. This is a boom to the pool business.

    Anyone out there following this stock? I think it can go to $300.00 post earnings. An insider told me that sales are through the roof, and supply can barely keep up with demand. Apparantly since regular vacations are out this year, many are buying or upgrading their pools.

    Check Google trends and call your local pool retailer, you’ll see that sales are exploding right now.

    PE is way too high! This is not a tech company. Wait for it to correct to a reasonable value.

    Goldman upgrades POOL to a buy with a $535 price target...exactly where I believe the company will ultimately trade. When it comes to pools POOL is by far and away the best stock in its industry.

    Pool is currently at the same price it was on Oct 12th. This is one of the longer times that Pool has been this flat. Let's hope that they have good numbers to report in two days. GLTA

    I would no more bet against POOL than I would play a game of Russian roulette. This company is a monster and has made me rich. Fully confident this will see $500 a share in the future.

    A chlorine shortage is rocket fuel for stocks like POOL. POOL is the best of breed in its industry...excellent financial health, fantastic earnings growth, and in terms of capital returns it has been an absolute monster since 2015. No reason for me to think it won't trade at 500 in the future. I believe everyone should own this fantastic company. All it has done ever since I've owned it is put more and more money in my pocket. I've not only recouped my investment I've made a ton of extra money as well. The soil for this company to continue to grow is as fertile as that of a flood plain.
