Analysts' Thoughts

KBH has traded lower with the overall sector over the last year, but with the stock’s recent weakness its valuation looks very attractive at this point. KBH trades at less than 7 times future earnings and analysts expect the company to grow earnings by 78% next year and by an annual average rate of 18% over the next five years. Last quarter the company had mixed results with earnings better than expected and revenue weaker than expected. The market expects a set of strong numbers with a whisper number of 97 cents versus the consensus 93 cents. Given the stock’s low valuation and the market somewhat optimistic over the Fed reducing its forecast of rate hikes for 2019 to two from three, a strong quarterly report could result in a spike in the stock. Analysts have an average price target of $24.70 on the stock, so there is decent upside following a strong set of numbers.
