Raymond James cut five homebuilder stocks today on valuation after the sector's significant outperformance in recent months amid the seasonal "Hope Trade," citing concerns of a disappointing spring selling season. It downgrades KB Home (KBH -3.2%) and Ryland Group (RYL -1.1%) to Underperform, and Lennar (LEN -2.9%), Toll Brothers (TOL -2.1%) and PulteGroup (PHM -0.5%) to Market Perform.
