What are analysts saying about KB Home stock?

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

  • 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." (2/7/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Although KB Home has developed the right strategy to generate cash, accelerate asset turnover, boost returns and reduce debt, 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. This lowers the purchasing power of the buyers and hurts volumes, revenues and profits of homebuilders. Meanwhile, KB Home shares underperformed the Zacks categorized Building-Residential/Commercial industry over the last 30 days. Estimates have also moved down in the same time frame raising apprehensions for the stock’s performance for the time being." (1/31/2017)
