Meritage Homes (MTH +5.2%) moves higher today on a solid Q1 earnings beat this morning. The number of closed homes for the quarter jumped 17% as closing surged 39% and orders jumped 35%. What's really driving the stock right now is its forecast for FY13. The homebuilder's EPS forecast, based on a 40% increase in closings revenue the rest of the year, puts the midpoint of its profit estimate more than 15% above consensus views - which were already double that from 2012. It now expects to earn between $2.20 - 2.45, versus Street estimates of $2.04.
