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 came up with stellar quarterly results once again on solid housing fundamentals. Earnings and sales surpassed analysts’ expectations by 8.5% and 2.1%, respectively, in third-quarter fiscal 2017. The company reported impressive 25.3% growth in revenues banking on an 11% increase in deliveries. Earnings in the quarter grew more than 21% year over year, helped by solid margins. Its adjusted housing gross profit margin improved 50 basis points (bps). This was primarily attributed to 12% rise in average selling price. Also, adjusted homebuilding operating margin surged 140 bps. The upside was primarily driven by an ongoing housing market recovery and favorable industry fundamentals. The company also expects the uptrend to continue to 2018. KB Home shares have widely outperformed the homebuilding industry, year to date. Also, the trend in current-year earnings estimate revisions is satisfactory. Estimates moved upward over the past seven days.<" (10/4/2017)
  • 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."
