Simply Wall St

I've been keeping an eye on M/I Homes, Inc. (NYSE:MHO) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe MHO has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a company with a great history of performance, trading at a discount. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, read the full report on M/I Homes here.

Undervalued with proven track record

Over the past year, MHO has grown its earnings by 57%, with its most recent figure exceeding its annual average over the past five years. Not only did MHO outperformed its past performance, its growth also surpassed the Consumer Durables industry expansion, which generated a 23% earnings growth. This paints a buoyant picture for the company. MHO's share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of MHO's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the consumer durables industry, MHO is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that MHO's price is currently discounted.
