Lennar (LEN) Q4 Earnings Miss, Revenues Beat Estimates


Lennar Corporation LEN is one of the leading homebuilders in the United States. With overall housing market recovering at a slow but steady pace, Lennar’s order trends have been improving at a consistent pace.

Lennar is performing well on the back of its diverse revenue mix, large land supply, above average order growth and better pricing power. Moreover, Lennar’s ancillary platforms — Rialto, Multi-Family, FivePoint and Financial Services — are evolving and are expected to contribute meaningfully in the near future.

Investors should also note that 2018 earnings estimate for LEN has moved north in the past seven days. Meanwhile, LEN has been posting positive earnings surprise for the past four quarters in a row, with an average surprise of 9.10%.

Currently, LEN has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), but that could definitely change following its earnings report which was just released. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.
