We determine the current worth of KB Home using both absolute as well as relative valuation methodologies to arrive at its intrinsic value. In general, an absolute valuation paradigm, as applied to this company, attempts to find the value of KB Home based exclusively on its fundamental and basic technical indicators. By analyzing KB Home's financials, quarterly and monthly indicators, and related drivers such as dividends, operating cash flow, and various types of growth rates, we attempt to find the most accurate representation of KB Home's intrinsic value.
