  • Why is it The Right Time to Invest in These Builders

    By Madhukar Dubey - August 16, 2013 | Tickers: NVR, PHM, TMHC

    Sales for newly built homes in the U.S. have increased 8.3% month-over-month to 497,000 units in June. An improving housing market and availability of different financing options, has led to a dramatic increase in the demand for new homes. Buyers who had previously delayed their home purchases are now motivated to buy, before home prices and interest rates rise in the future. High rental occupancy and rising more »

  • Housing Stocks - Buy the Dip

    By Justin Carley - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: DHI, NVR, PHM

    PulteGroup (NYSE: PHM) is putting its money where its mouth is. The company made it clear in recent months that it is going to focus on profitable growth and bury forever the devastation that unprofitable sales caused during the housing collapse. Investors and analysts should have applauded the company’s recent quarterly results. Instead, the shares were discarded and fell more than 14% over a two day stretch just prior more »

  • QE Or Not, These Housing Stocks Are Winners

    By Jacob Wolinsky - July 16, 2013 | Tickers: DHI, NVR, TOL

    Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke lifted the mood of the markets as he announced that the end of the quantitative easing is still some time off in the future. This acted as a sentiment booster for interest rate-sensitive sectors such as housing, which fell some time ago when markets assumed that the central bank was about to wind up the stimulus program. Included among the prominent gainers are NVR (NYSE: NVRmore »)

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - June 28, 2013 | Tickers: CYH, MTG, NVR, QLIK, SWKS

    By going through quarterly 13F filings from hundreds of hedge funds and other notable investors, we’ve found that their most popular small cap stocks outperform the S&P 500 by an average of 18 percentage points per year. We think that this is because large institutional investors (such as mutual funds) and the financial media tend to pay less attention to small cap stocks, which leads to them more more »

    Our analysis of quarterly 13F filings from hundreds of hedge funds and other notable investors such as Ken Heebner’s Capital Growth Management shows that the most popular small cap stocks among the group we track outperform the S&P 500 by an average of 18 percentage points per year. We think that this is because large institutional investors pay less attention to small-cap stocks, making them less efficiently priced more »

  • 4 Oversold Homebuilders in Consider for Housing Recovery

    By Nur Tarkak - June 24, 2013 | Tickers: DHI, LEN, NVR, PHM

    The recovery of the U.S. home market gained traction in June, triggering the surge of confidence on the homebuilders. Since April 2006, the housing market index broke the 50-point mark, reaching 52-points. With the index at 52, there is a bit of optimism in the air. This is brought about by increasing demand for new homes amidst low inventory of existing homes. Many buyers are favoring new homes, thereby more »

  • Is Wall Street Behind the Housing Rally?

    By Lior Cohen - June 13, 2013 | Tickers: DHI, NVR, BX

    The ongoing recovery of the housing market raised the concern that we are heading toward another bubble that could burst in the near future. In a recent article in The New York Times, the authors made the argument that big Wall Street firms such as The Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) might be behind the latest recovery of the housing market. Let’s examine this assessment and analyze the recent developments more »

  • Housing Market Moving Upscale

    By Reuben Brewer - June 5, 2013 | Tickers: DHI, LEN, NVR, TOL

    New home sales were strong in April, according to Bloomberg. What was more interesting, however, was that the median home price went up. That's good news for builders of more expensive homes like Toll Brothers (NYSE: TOL) and NVR (NYSE: NVR). Lennar (NYSE: LEN) and D.R. Horton (NYSE: DHI), however, aren't exactly going to suffer.

  • Betting on the Home Builders: Is It too Late?

    By Marshall Hargrave - May 16, 2013 | Tickers: DHI, MTH, NVR, PHM, RYL

    The home builders have been on a tear since last month, and for good reason. Employment is rising and credit is loosening, which means more people are buying and building homes. Housing starts were up 27.5% year-over-year for 2012, and S&P Economics is expecting housing starts to rise another 34.6% in 2013.  As a result of these solid housing numbers, all the major home builders have been more »
  • Undervalued Housing Stocks With Potential of Becoming Superstars

    By Jacob Wolinsky - May 3, 2013 | Tickers: NVR, SPF, TOL

    Housing statistics continue to amaze with resilience. According to the numbers released by the National Association of Realtors, seasonally adjusted index for pending home sales rose 1.5% during March to 105.7. This is the highest level for the index in three years. 

    Steady job additions and historically low mortgage rates are some of the factors fueling the traffic of buyers. This is fueling a long standing rally in more »

  • Top Homebuilder Stocks That Could Surge With the Recovery

    By Alex Bastardas - March 7, 2013 | Tickers: DHI, MDC, NVR

    Since late 2006, home prices in the United States have dropped, on average, a little over 30%, although drops have been much higher in some areas. Huge numbers of homes for sale, ample inventories of foreclosed homes, rough macroeconomic conditions, high unemployment, and harder-to-get mortgages have all put futher pressure on the housing market, halting a rapid recovery. It now seems, however, that demand is picking up again, supply is more »

  • 5 High P/E Stocks to Watch for Correction

    By William Bias - March 2, 2013 | Tickers: CMG, LL, NVR, SODA, TSCO

    Sometimes it pays to watch stocks with high P/E ratios. Influenced by some negative macroeconomic statistic or a company’s miss on consensus estimates, investors in these expensive stocks (trading at a high price to earnings multiple) tend to scare more easily. However, the upside could be a better entry point for opportunistic investors. The five companies below fit those criteria.

    By Lior Cohen - February 8, 2013 | Tickers: DHI, LEN, NVR, PHM

    Several reports came out in recent weeks that suggest the housing market is showing signs of recovery. Moreover, shares of leading U.S homebuilders such as D.R.

    By Leo Sun - February 6, 2013 | Tickers: DHI, LEN, NVR, PHM

    The U.S. housing market today is full of confusing contradictions. Housing prices are rising, but sales are dropping - yet homebuilders can’t build houses fast enough to meet demand. In this article, I will explain why things aren’t as disconnected as they appear, and why today’s big builders may present some of the market’s best investment opportunities.

  • 3 Companies Benefitting From the Housing Recovery

    By William Bias - February 1, 2013 | Tickers: HD, LL, NVR

    In April 2006 home prices hit a high. Afterwards, prices began a long decline hitting a seasonally adjusted bottom in May 2009. With the help of government stimulus programs, home prices started on a temporary upward trajectory hitting a new seasonally adjusted top in May 2010. Then, starting in Jan. 2012 prices started back up in what pundits call a housing “recovery” (see graph below).  Shareholders in companies associated with homebuilding experienced a windfall and valuations expanded. However, certain macro-economic conditions such as lower unemployment and better consumer confidence will sustain the housing expansion further and three companies will continue to benefit.

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - January 16, 2013 | Tickers: DHI, LEN, NVR, PHM, TOL

  • 4 Cash Rich Companies for Your Portfolio

    By William Bias - November 20, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, LNN, NVR, BKE

    Cash is king. A company that possesses a huge amount of it provides a fundamental margin of safety for its shareholders and has the potential for an ever increasing dividend stream. Of course, a huge cash stash along isn’t enough without the ability to sustain growth in free cash flow. Companies possessing the ability to grow and retain cash can lead to market beating stock market returns. Here are 4 companies to consider:
