Luxury homebuilder Toll Brothers (TOL) swung to a first-quarter profit, helped in part by an increase in the average delivery price of homes it sold.

Toll reported a profit of $3.4 million, or 2 cents per share, compared with a loss of $40.8 million, or 25 cents per share last year.


Included in the latest quarter's results was a tax benefit of $20.4 million, primarily due to the reversal of previously accrued taxes, penalties and interest, compared with a $16 million tax benefit last year.

Revenue rose 3 percent to $334.1 million in the quarter.


Analysts on average were expecting the company to post a loss of 7 cents a share on revenue of $317.2 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.


The average price was $586,000, up 7 percent from last year.


The company said it ended the quarter with a backlog of $825.2 million, and 1,472 units.

Toll Brothers estimates that it will deliver between 2,200 and 2,800 homes in 2011 and said the average delivered price for this year is expected to be between $540,000 and $565,000.

[BRIEFING.COM] The major averages ended the midweek session on a flat note after spending the day inside narrow ranges. The S&P 500 hovered near the 2,000 mark for the majority of the trading day, but slumped to new lows during the last hour of action. The index then returned to its flat line, where it settled for the day. For the third day in a row, participation left a lot to be desired with just 487 million shares changing hands at the NYSE.
