What are analysts saying about KB Home stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about KB Home stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "KB Home shares outperformed the Zacks categorized Building-Residential/Commercial industry, year to date. It has developed the right strategy to boost scale in existing geographic footprint, improve profitability per unit, generate higher operating margin and drive earnings while simultaneously generating positive cash flow to invest in growth and debt reduction. The company started 2017 with an impressive 20.7% growth in revenues and double-digit rise in deliveries and housing revenues. Strong orders in value (up 32%) and backlog (up 25%) bode well. However, the rising interest rates may dent demand, thereby hurting profits for KB Home. With the Fed announcing a hike in the benchmark, mortgage rates will probably rise later in 2017. High mortgage rates dilute the demand for new homes as mortgage loans become expensive." (6/7/2017)
  • 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "We reiterate our OUTPERFORM rating on KBH. KBH raised the FY17 guidance midpoints for revenue to $4.15 billion from $4.0 billion and the operating margin to 6.1% from 6.0% based on much higher F1Q17 order growth than we expected. Consequently, we are lifting our FY17E/FY18E EPS to $1.61/$1.86 from $1.55/$1.75." (3/24/2017)
  • 3. BTIG Research analysts commented, "In our view, KBH's business model represents a pre-crisis approach to homebuilding in an industry that has changed. KBH is attempting to re-build local market share to regain some control over margins, but is hampered by competition, an excessive debt load, an overhang of high cost land and a build-to-order strategy that does not mesh well with current labor shortages nor asset turnover efficiency, in our view."
