While Lowe's Cos. managed to boost sales 2.1%, to $12.2 billion, in the first quarter, the continued slump in the U.S. housing market pressured profits, with net earnings falling 12.1%, to $739 million.

While March results were solid, the company said cold and wet weather in the first two weeks in April-normally primetime in the home-improvement calendar-were weak. The company says it "continued to gain market share during the quarter despite the challenging sales environment."--Sarah Mahoney
