Analysts' Thoughts

The entire housing sector showed weakness in 2018 stemming from concerns over rising interest rates. We have seen stability return to the sector after the Federal Reserve announced it plans to boost rates just twice in 2019, down from its previous estimate of three additional rate hikes. Interest rates have been on the rise in recent years, but they remain very low on an historic basis. TOL has posted big earnings surprises the last two quarters, and if the company is able to extend that streak the stock should continue to build on its recent gains. The stock has a very low valuation and is currently trading at less than 8 times earnings, so there is a lot of upside as long as the quarterly numbers are in-line or better than expected. Analysts have an average price target of $37.89 on the stock.
