Christopher Horvers with JPMorgan has our abutting question.

Christopher Horvers — JPMorgan Chase — Analyst

Thanks. Acceptable morning. I capital to chase up on the expenses. So it looks like ask in the blow top band and bottom-line SG&A impact, you grew SG&A to sales at about a 39% advance rate.

Is that — how do you advanced about that arrangement as you attending advanced in the business? I apperceive you about array of adviser to 50 and there’s consistently a affectionate of abundance befalling at The Home Depot. Do you advanced that, that 50 is still the appropriate cardinal is 40 the appropriate number? Do you see any advancement burden on your array of bordering flow-through about SG&A adjoin sales?

Carol Tome — Chief Banking Officer and Executive Vice President-Corporate Services

Well, let’s aloof attending at the fourth quarter. and as you know, we don’t adviser at the fourth quarter, but I’ll accord you some blush in the fourth quarter. Bulk advance factor, well, in the fourth quarter, will be agnate to what we’ve guided for the absolute year. And as you know, we’ve now aerial our advice such that the bulk advance agency should be 55% for the absolute year.

and you may say, why is that? Well, a few reasons. One, we will accept some advancing hurricane-related expense, not to the admeasurement that we bulk in the third quarter, but there is some accustomed adversity bulk that activity to arise in the fourth quarter. Two, we are decidedly outperforming our plan, which is a acceptable new story, and that agency we’re activity to be advantageous added bonuses. So we’ll accept added success administration for our alternate associates, and we’re captivated to do that.

But that will put some burden on the bulk advance agency in the fourth quarter. And afresh aloof a little bit of bill new ones in all of this because aback you accept a weaker U.S. dollar, your costs alfresco the United States, aback you construe them back, absolute bit college than they would accept been aftermost year. So hopefully, that helps adviser with the fourth division would attending like.

And then, as you know, we anticipation our Broker Day advancing up on December 6. And we’re activity to accord new banking targets for 2020. So we’ll adviser you through aggregate on December.

Christopher Horvers — JPMorgan Chase — Analyst

I assumption — but as you advanced about, seems like if I attending aback in 2016, you grew, I think, 30% ancestors to sales. So does that announce any array of advancement burden on incremental bulk adjoin sales?

Carol Tome — Chief Banking Officer and Executive Vice President-Corporate Services

Yes, at the alpha of the year, we said 50% was a acceptable cardinal to use, and that included ascent bodies costs. And we’re not alone. All retailers are faced with ascent bodies cost. And we appearance our bodies as an investment.

So we accept some of that pressure. But Chris, at the end of the day, the operating allowance this aggregation wants to lift in a BAU basis. We will advantage bulk in a BAU basis. If you appetite to use 50% as a BAU, that’s a acceptable cardinal to use.

Christopher Horvers — JPMorgan Chase — Analyst

Understood. And afresh aloof analytical about a clear ball. You talked about no allotment from the hurricanes as you attending to abutting year. There’s a bigger — it seems like there’s a bigger blow this year adjoin aftermost year.

So what gives you the aplomb in adage that at this point? I guess, why not let The Street put the bisect in there? What are you seeing that would actuate you to adviser that way this far out?

Craig Menear — Chief Executive Officer, President and Chairman

I mean, as we shared, anniversary storm is different. And Harvey was absolute altered than the added two storms. And the bearings in Harvey is a abundant added abiding accretion because of the attributes of the storm actuality water-based and the actuality that there are a fair bulk of association that didn’t accept allowance because they didn’t alive in the 100-year flood point. Unfortunately, they were in the 500-year flood point.

And so we aloof advanced that that’s accretion is activity to be abiding and afresh a storm like that, we accept to go in and basically, bodies are ripping aggregate up bottomward to the studs and starting over. That’s activity to booty a while to recover

Carol Tome — Chief Banking Officer and Executive Vice President-Corporate Services

We accept — I’ve got a 10-page accouter that if you were, I’ll appearance you. So if we attending at Harvey and as an example, it absolutely looks so abundant like the Baton Rouge flooding, but it’s 3.7x bigger than the Baton Rouge. So we aloof modeled our acquaintance in Baton Rouge, affectionate of assorted it by 3 point times to get the aftereffect for this year and into next. So it’s absolutely a lot of science that went aloft this expectation.

But I acknowledge the advancement that maybe we should put a dividend, but I wouldn’t accomplish the suggestion.

Christopher Horvers — JPMorgan Chase — Analyst

So it’s the aboriginal bisected adjoin aback bisected ’18, basically?

Carol Tome — Chief Banking Officer and Executive Vice President-Corporate Services

Ted Decker — Executive Vice President, Merchandising

And afresh aback the storm hits, a lot of things like alfresco accoutrement and chainsaws and [Inaudible]. Afterwards that, the flood in the added Houston market, they’re your absolutely ripping the attic to the studs. So you accept base and base accessories and adhering and mud and acrylic in flooring.

Quite a bit of attic product. Additionally chiffonier timberline and appliances, et cetera.

Thank you. Scott Mushkin with Wolfe Research. Amuse go ahead.

Hey, guys. Acknowledgment for demography my question. So I aloof capital to, I mean, afterwards that aftermost animadversion about how able things are in November. I aloof appetite to apperceive alfresco of the blow areas, do you guys appetite to accord us the U.S.

comp?

Craig Menear — Chief Executive Officer, President and Chairman

No, I don’t advanced we can do that. But I can acquaint you this. Our business, if you attending at the business in areas not afflicted by hurricanes. I mean, we’re absolutely absolute admiring with the business both from a transaction standpoint to admission advance standpoint, advance in key categories aloft the business.

We see backbone aloft the storm, aloft geographies, as we said in our beforehand comments. So we’re absolute admiring with the trends in the business appropriate now.

Scott Mushkin — Wolfe Analysis — Analyst

And would you be adequate calling it consecutive strength?

Carol Tome — Chief Banking Officer and Executive Vice President-Corporate Services

Yes, I mean… Sure.

Craig Menear — Chief Executive Officer, President and Chairman

Yes, I mean, and if you attending at it as able-bodied on a 2-year assemblage basis, sure.

Scott Mushkin — Wolfe Analysis — Analyst

Then the one affair that which had a lot of questions, the one affair hasn’t been talked about in the get a lot of questions on is tax policy. Obviously, with the rollout of the Abode plan, we saw a little footfall aback in some of the home-related adamantine lightning names. And I’m aloof apprehensive if you guys had at that as we go into ’18 about tax policy, one of our this aeon generally, that’s affectionate of questing we get too. And if you accept any fears as we move into abandoned to do that we could absolutely see arrest in business, ex the hurricanes.

Craig Menear — Chief Executive Officer, President and Chairman

Sure. So on a ample basis, I’d say we’re absolute admiring of tax ameliorate that would ammunition the abridgement and actualize jobs. And so that’s commodity that we achievement we see booty abode here. And I advanced there’s obviously, a lot activity on amid the Abode and the Senate, and we’ll see breadth this all avalanche out.

As it relates to some of the pieces that are actuality discussed alone and how that impacts housing, candidly, we don’t subscribe to the actuality that the acceptance the mortgage absorption answer abolishment would accept abundant of an impact. I mean, we aloof don’t advanced it has much. And in ample part, because the majority of households wouldn’t accept an appulse from what’s declared today. But it’s appealing aboriginal to tell.

We don’t apperceive what’s activity to pass.

Carol Tome — Chief Banking Officer and Executive Vice President-Corporate Services

It’s aboriginal days. Our analysis shows that abandoned 22% of tax filers absolutely use a deduction. And afresh of the bodies who accept mortgages, abandoned 5% accept mortgages in balance of $500,000. And afresh if we accept to advanced about, well, what is the appulse to those who absolutely accept mortgages in balance of $500,000, we adeptness catalog in the seductions.

It’s absolutely based on a bordering tax bracket. And the way to advanced about it, [Inaudible] bulk of their mortgage. And with mortgage ante so low, it’s not a actual impact. In fact, we apperceive that for every 25 abject points, afresh a mortgage rate, it’s $40 a month.

So you can do the math. And you can appear up with year on impact, but we aloof don’t, as we angle actuality today, Dell will be a actual impact. As we advanced about apartment broadly and fears of slowdown, we don’t see that for 2018, 2019 and 2020 for a cardinal of reasons. We talked about an crumbling apartment stock, home domiciliary accumulation and home bulk acknowledgment and you may say, well, home prices are absolutely aerial haven’t absolutely absolutely recovered with the calefaction and the canal but aloof as they accept but on an able business, there’s still bottomward bifold digits.

And aback you advanced about all of the aftereffect that it’s with college home prices, it’s been about 122% admission in disinterestedness or about $64,000 per home, and that’s advice to spending they’ll and the focus for home bulk acknowledgment abutting year is absolute good. So we don’t — the rumors of already awaiting slowdown, we don’t see because of the basal abstracts because we attending on our website and we aloof don’t see it.

So again, Matt, we attending at the business aloft regions and attending at non-storm areas adjoin storm areas. The abstracts about tickets and affairs is absolutely appealing comparable, and we didn’t see a affecting departure. Obviously, Houston, that bazaar is up and up significantly.
