  • This follows up on two other buys she made in August, for about $201,000, and another buy in July, also in the $100,000 range. Otherwise, company insiders were sellers of shares last year, including both the company’s CFO and several vice presidents.

    Overall, company insiders own 2.4 percent of shares.

    The homebuilder is up 42 percent over the past year. While home sales have slowed, the drop in existing home sales has led buyers to purchase new homes such as those built by Lennar.

    And even with mortgage rates nearing 8 percent, Lennar looks priced inexpensively at 8 times forward earnings and just under 1 times its price to sales.

  • Special: $1,300 into $45,000 in just 4 MONTHS?!
  • Action to take: Lennar will continue to sell new homes, and the market could get a boost when interest rates start to trend lower, likely in the next 6-12 months. That could help shares continue their recent rally.

    At present, Lennar yields about 1.4 percent. The payout ratio is low, so even if home sales drop over the short term, Lennar can likely continue to maintain that payment.

    For traders, shares have been trending lower in recent months, but are likely to stage a year-end rally. The January 2024 $120 calls, last going for about $3.85, could see mid-to-high double-digit returns in the coming months.
