NVR reports!



April 18, 2008 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: NVR , SRS

NVR is probably the best in class homebuilder out there.

In Dec. 2003 in an expanding market they reported $49.00/share earnings and commanded a share price just a shade under $500.00. After reporting $49.00/share earnings the share price dropped to $450.00.

Today in a declining market, they reported quarterly earnings of $7.42. Lets just ignore the cancelations and lower starts and imagine they maintain earnings of $7.42 for the remaining 4 quarters of the year. Basically guessing they will earn $30.00/share this year.

So in 2003 $49.00/share was worth $450.00. In 2008 $30.00/share is worth $650.00.

SRS fell $5.00 today, but I'm keeping my shares.

With a 14% Debt/Cap, they look like the "bell of the ball". Numbers and metrics need not apply. They don't look like a bk candidate and that trumps P/E for now.

Look at that. At the end of the day SRS is up a dime. My question is when do they start growing earnings again, 2011, 12 ?
