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 have outperformed its industry, year to date. It has formulated 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’s first half of fiscal 2017 results show an impressive 22% growth in revenues and a double-digit increase in deliveries and housing revenues along with 58% surge in profit level. Strong orders in value (up 21.8%) and backlog (up 19%) in the first half also bode well. However, higher construction and labor costs, rising interest rate as well as competitive pricing pressure are pressing concerns." (9/5/2017)
- 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."

Consensus Ratings for KB Home (NYSE:KBH) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
