Jeldwen Holding (JELD - Free Report) is a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) and it sports a Value Style Score of A and a Growth Style Score of B. This building products company is seeing the positive impact of low rates and strong demand for new homes. Let's take a look at the numbers in the Bull Of The Day.

I see an ok earnings history with two beats and two misses in the last four quarters.
Importantly, the most recent quarter was a huge beat and that has helped push estimates higher for this stock.
The most recent quarter saw the company report EPS of $0.47 when $0.18 was expected. This translates to a beat of $0.29 or a positive earnings surprise of 161%.
Estimates spiked following the solid beat and that is the main reason why this stock moved to a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
I see this quarter moving to $0.41 from $0.23. Next quarter moved from $0.19 to $0.31 as well. Both very solid moves.
The full year numbers are what really matters ot the Zacks Rank, I see the 2020 number moving from $0.72 to $1.34.
Next year also saw a huge increase to $1.06 from $1.67.
JELD has a great valuation, with a 15x forward earnings multiple and a price to book multiple of 2.46x. These are levels that will have value investors looking for a good time to make an entry. I see operating margins have held realatively still, but net margins have seen a slight decline over the last few quarters.
The Hottest Tech Mega-Trend of All
Last year, it generated $24 billion in global revenues. By 2020, it's predicted to blast through the roof to $77.6 billion. Famed investor Mark Cuban says it will produce "the world's first trillionaires," but that should still leave plenty of money for regular investors who make the right trades early.
