Beazer Homes (BZH -2.9%) trades lower as top-line numbers beat FQ4 expectations on higher closings Y/Y, but operating EPS and core gross margins came in below Street estimates. Analysts are viewing Y/Y revenue gains in homebuilders with a sceptical eye, as results are skewed from slumping sales last summer following the expiration of the federal home buyer tax credit.
