- AI SINGULARITY IS 3 MONTHS AWAY
This is the exact moment when AI will throw off its shackles, instantly growing billions of times more intelligent than Einstein.
A two-time hedge fund manager is sharing a "Singularity Investor Playbook" you can use to position yourself at the forefront of this historic moment.
Shares of the homebuilder have slid about 9 percent over the past year, even as revenue has risen by 40 percent and earnings have soared by 260 percent. Thanks to the strong earnings, shares trade at just 5 times forward earnings.
Action to take: Markets are pricing in rising interest rates, but homebuilders should still fare well thanks to the imbalance between supply and demand for housing right now.
Investors may like shares for appreciation over the coming months as fears over rising interest rates fade, although the stock doesn’t yet pay a dividend.
Plus, given the company’s small size and focus on fast-growing West Coast markets, the company could be an attractive buyout candidate at the right price.
Traders will have to look elsewhere in the homebuilder space for an opportunity, as options don’t currently trade on the company.
