Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly RBC recently upgraded home builder DHI based on current trends in the housing market and its affordable regional focus (largely in Texas) is well positioned. It trades at only 10.5x earnings, compared to 32x for the construction space. With a PEG ratio of 0.72, it is good value based on EPS growth expected to be over 13% next year, following a 49% increase this year. It pays a small dividend backed by a payout ratio of only 10%. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $59, looking to achieve $89 -- over 30% upside potential. Yield 1.18% (Analysts’ price target is $89.21)

Brookfield buying BPY He expects BAM to take it over and it's a good thing to keep BPY within Brookfield/BAM. The deal is accretive for BAM which he really likes. About BPY, you don't want to own these assets (offices, large retail) during this pandemic. Better to own apartments and industrials. BAM fell 5% on news of the takeover, but investors don't understand how accretive this deal is. BAM is a fantastic asset allocator; he wouldn't bet against them.
