Barclays upgrades KB Home to Overweight on improving housing market

Barclays analyst Matthew Bouley upgraded KB Home to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $29 from $24. The analyst says his firm's spring agent survey confirmed that housing fundamentals have improved and stabilized. Gradual market improvement links with KB Home's 2019 community ramp, allowing for accelerating growth, Bouley tells investors in a research note. This, coupled with improving margins, "manifests in more resilient returns" and should support a higher multiple, adds the analyst. He believes KB Home's valuation still reflects a market that is deteriorating.

KB Home earnings beat driven in part by lower tax rate, says BTIG
BTIG analyst Carl Reichardt kept his Sell rating and $17 price target on KB Home after its Q1 results, saying the earnings beat was driven by lower tax rates and better gross margins. The analyst noted that the company's 4% order decline was better than his expected 13% slide, but expressed concerns with Q2 operating margin outlook coming 170bps below his prior forecast. Reichardt further warns that the below average growth for KB Home is not priced in at current levels and attributes the sequential improvement in demand to incentives, which should result in "weaker operating margin in the out quarters".
