Many are surprised that this--in the home-building space--is doing well now. They did 11,000 home closings last year at $4.5 billion revenue. He's bullish on the economy and KBH has done a great job finding active adult buyers, so many that they are having trouble keeping up with demand. This will do well in a choppy market. Millennials want homes. (Analysts’ price target is $36.86)

(A Top Pick November 10/17 - Down 17%.) They had a great year in 2017. Also, other builders. Not so much so far in 2018. Higher interest rates are a negative for the housing market. But there are many positives on the other side of the page. Unemployment is at the lower level since the 60’s. Wage growth at 2%. For homebuilders’ supply is the problem not demand. Revenues up 7%, earnings up 70%. But the market doesn’t like it because interest rates are going up. That creates an opportunity in his opinion.

Don’t buy Canadian real estate. Home ownership is at decade lows. The new Silicon Valley is San Antonio. With deregulation, home ownership should increase. (Analysts’ target: $18.77).

Downward pressure depends on how much rates rise, not if. Old resistance is becoming support. As long as the support is holding then don’t short it.

(A Top Pick Feb 26/14. Down 28.79%.) A few months ago they came out with a warning that their gross margins were not going to be as good as the Street thought they were going to be. This was because they were paying a much higher price for land. Stock sold off into the high $1100 and he thought it was just too much. The trend in the industry is still very, very positive. He’ll be looking to see if there is a better place to be.

One of the smaller homebuilders in the US. Likes the space. Prefers Brookfield Residential (BRP-T) over this. You really want to look at the companies with the strongest land position, particularly in an environment where land prices are rising. Brookfield has 20 years plus of land inventory, so they don’t have to pay ever-increasing prices. If anything, they will be selling land to others.

Likes the whole homebuilder sector. He is not a big believer in buying any more of these when you are down. When you go to buy stocks, you buy it because you think it is going higher. If it doesn’t, that means we really don’t know where it is going. There are better things coming down the road.

Home builders have very strong seasonality. They head south this time of year. This one has already done so. This could be a potential short candidate. The best time is October to January to be in this stock.

A good, long-term Hold. This whole space has a lot of room to run. If you look at the run rate of new home building, it is running at about 1 million units a year and yet household formations are running at about 1.5 million per year. This means there are going to be more new homes built and this company will be a beneficiary.

It has been a tough year for homes. Don’t sell here. This is an area of future interest that he has. You don’t want to start a family in a condo, and the eco-boom generation will want to start families.

Looks a bit expensive based on PE ratio. Valuation is a bit stretched. You are going to have fits and starts in the US housing market.

Likes the US housing space. This has come off pretty hard here. Doesn’t know if right now is the time. Seeing major negative sentiment readings on US homes and it is right down towards its bottom. Thinks this is a good space to get into right now. Over the next 3 years, we are more likely to see a growth scenario play out in the US, rather than a deflation scenario.

First and foremost, you want to have a view on what you think is going to happen to new US housing. This company had a great, great run coming out of the bottom of 2008. Now it is subject to profit taking. Prefers Tricon Capital Group (TCN-T).
