Compass Point reiterates a 'Neutral' on PulteGroup (NYSE: PHM) price target of $8.50.

Analyst, Wilkes Graham, said, "Ahead of the company’s 1Q12 earnings release on Thursday morning, we are previewing earnings and adjusting our quarterly estimates to better reflect seasonality in G&A. We now forecast a loss of -$0.02/share for 1Q12, driven by an 18.6% home building margin before capitalized interest, 15.6% G&A margin, 10% growth in orders and flat closings."

"We continue to forecast annual closings in 2012 and 2013 of 3.5% and 14.3%, and order growth of 7.1% and 15.0%. Our 1Q12 estimate is for a loss of -$0.02, and assumes flat sequential growth in our pre-capitalized interest margin estimate from 4Q11."
