- The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 29.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 14.1%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- PULTEGROUP INC reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, PULTEGROUP INC continued to lose money by earning -$0.55 versus -$2.90 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.69 versus -$0.55).
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Household Durables industry. The net income increased by 190.2% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$129.30 million to $116.63 million.
- Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 271.35% to $209.69 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, PULTEGROUP INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -21.71%.
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 188.23% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 180.86% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Looking ahead, the stock's sharp rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level which is relatively expensive compared to the rest of its industry. We feel, however, that other strengths this company displays justify these higher price levels.
