Recent News & Updates
Homebuilder Hovnanian: The Lowest P/E On The NYSE
I am bullish of the homebuilding industry demand and supply stories. Hovnanian remains a turnaround story from the '08-'11 housing crisis, but that turnaround now seems sustainable. I estimate EPS of $24 a share next year. That puts Hovnanian's P/E at less than 4. Hovnanian has no Wall Street or Seeking Alpha coverage. A truly under-the-radar opportunity.
