According to Seeking Alpha, 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.
