Homebuilding stock NVR, Inc. (NYSE:NVR) doesn't quite get the coverage that sector peers KBH Home (KBH), Lennar (LEN), and Toll Brothers get from the investing world. Maybe that's because of the steep price tag, last seen at $4,968.32. Regardless of its high stock price, NVR is one of America’s leading homebuilders, and will report third quarter earnings this Monday, Oct. 18. Ahead of the event, here's how NVR has performed on the charts. 

NVR is up 21.8% in 2021, but is a ways off its Aug. 6 record high of $5,332.08. Nevertheless, the September pullback found support at the shares' 200-day moving average. 

NVR Stock Chart

From a fundamental point of view, NVR stock is extremely well-rounded and offers a decent valuation. NVR stock currently trades at a price-earnings ratio of 16.89 and has an intriguing forward price-earnings ratio of 14.60. In addition, NVR maintains an attractive balance sheet, holding $2.6 billion in cash and only $1.6 billion in total debt.

Moreover, NVR has maintained consistent top- and bottom-line growth on an annual basis since fiscal 2017, increasing revenues 37% and net income 111%. Overall, NVR stock promises a low level of risk in exchange for consistent and substantial long-term growth, if you can stomach the price tag.
