Toll Brothers Inc.
The company is expected to report earnings of $2.48/share on $2.88 billion in revenue. Meanwhile, the so-called Whisper number is a gain of $2.57/share. The Whisper number is the Street\’s unofficial view on earnings.
A Closer Look At The Fundamentals:
The company continues to thrive as the housing boom continues on Main Street. Home prices have soared across most of the country over the past few years and home builders have benefited from this very strong demand. That is shown by the very healthy double and triple digit sales and earnings growth the company has enjoyed in the past few quarters!
A Closer Look At The Technicals:
Technically, the stock is acting great and just broke out of a big base and hit a fresh record high. The stock is acting very well and a big gap up after earnings would likely attract a lot more buyers. Other housing stocks have gapped up after reporting earnings recently which bodes well for Toll Brothers.
Pay Attention To How The Stock Reacts To The News:
From where I sit, the most important trait I look for during earnings season is how the market and a specific company reacts to the news. Remember, always keep your losses small and never argue with the tape.
