KB Home (NYSE: KBH) Stock Weekly Chart 

KB Home (KBH) is on the rise following Thursday earnings release, where the company posted earnings that beat Wall Street expectations.

Given that it is still early in the rising phase of its current market cycle, we believe the stock has more upside.

The company reported earnings per share of $0.51 and total revenue of $1 billion, compared to analyst estimates of $0.39 and $943 million. 

CEO Jeffrey Mezger explained that, “We are pleased with our second-quarter performance, as we made significant progress on our Returns-Focused Growth Plan. Two of the key objectives of this Plan are to grow our business and strengthen our balance sheet.”

Our analysis focuses on market cycles for KB Home (KBH).

We believe the stock is now in the rising phase of its current cycle with plenty more upside, as it is still early in the cycle. Our target is $28-$30 in the coming months. However, that is major resistance, with low odds it will go beyond that level.
