Today’s quick video takes a closer look at DR Horton (DHI - Free Report) stock ahead of its earnings report. The company, like many others in the homebuilder world, has been under pressure as of late thanks to concerns about the growth in the housing market, as well as the interest rate outlook.

The homebuilder world actually has a bottom 15% industry rank right now, so many companies in this area have poor ranks and have fallen out of favor with analysts. However, DHI has proven to be a bit of an exception, as it has a Zacks Rank #2 (buy) along with a ‘B’ for its VGM score. Plus, earnings estimates have held up relatively nicely for this stock heading into the release.

However, this could be a case where the outlook weighs on the stock more than anything, and especially given the impact of the Fed’s interest rate policy on not just DHI, but homebuilders at large. So while DHI could beat once again, thoughts on rates look to dominate the report.
