Homebuilding stocks get a lift from a positive NAHB number this morning, as the sentiment reading for this month climbed to its highest level in five years. It's important to note however, that despite the improvement in starts, home building still remains well off normal levels. Anything above 50 suggests a positive view of home building conditions, and this index hasn't had a positive reading since April 2006. Toll Brothers (TOL +2.9%), KB Home (KBH +3.7%), Lennar (LEN +3.7%), Hovnanian (HOV +5%), D R Horton (DHI _3.5%), PulteGroup (PHM +1.8%) S&P Homebuilders ETF (XHB +1.5%).
