Supply Chain Problems Hammer Lennar Earnings

Shares of Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN) fell 5.56% in after-hours trading on Wednesday after the homebuilding giant reported mixed earnings. Financials: Lennar reported earnings per share of $3.91, which was below estimates. However, its revenue of $8.4 billion was better than expected. Headwinds: A mixture of supply chain constraints and labor shortages damaged the results. For example, the cost of lumber went up. Demand was also weak, with new home orders increasing by just 2%. Quote: “During the quarter, our homebuilding machine continued to be laser focused on production, even while our cycle time expanded about two weeks from the third quarter driven by rapidly changing supply chain issues,” - Jon Jaffe, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Co-President of Lennar. Final Thoughts: The entire home-building industry is impacted by these economic forces. With that being said, Lennar’s stock has a low price-to-earnings ratio, which signals a good value.
