In the said letter, Ensemble Capital highlighted a few stocks and NVR Inc (NYSE:NVR) is one of them. NVR Inc (NYSE:NVR) is a home construction company. Year-to-date, NVR Inc (NYSE:NVR) stock gained 16.3% and on October 9th it had a closing price of $4,399.01. Here is what Ensemble Capital said:
“NVR: A home builder that deploys an idiosyncratic strategy that avoids speculating on land prices and builds homes to order rather than putting up a development and then hoping they can sell all the houses, NVR is an extremely well-run company with a focus on building new homes in the Southeastern United States. We believe that the home building industry, scarred from the overbuilding mistakes they made during the housing bubble 15 years ago, have been very slow to build new homes in recent years. This low level of investment has now gone on too long and there is a shortage of homes available to buy in the US. With mortgage interest rates plummeting, and people being triggered to reconsider their housing situation due to the pandemic, orders for new homes have gone vertical causing NVR’s stock to rally 25% during the quarter.”
In Q2 2020, the number of bullish hedge fund positions on NVR Inc (NYSE:NVR) stock increased by about 15% from the previous quarter (see the chart here), so a number of other hedge fund managers seem to agree with NVR’s growth potential. Our calculations showed that NVR Inc (NYSE:NVR) isn’t ranked among the 30 most popular stocks among hedge funds.
