“On the morning of 10/31, Taylor Morrison Home (TMHC) announced 3Q18 results which were in line to modestly ahead of expectations, including closings and HB gross margin which were at the higher end of guidance. Management also updated its guidance for full year 2018 including the completed acquisition of AV Homes (AVH) on October 2 and taking into account a “pause” in the market. Since the closing of AVH, the company has been repurchasing shares. We are adjusting our estimates and are lowering our price target from $29 to $20. We maintain our Neutral rating given modest organic growth relative to certain other homebuilders and valuation.”
