The steep afternoon drop in shares of USG (USG -5.5%) and Eagle Materials (EGLE -2.2%) is tied to a research note by analysts at Cleveland Research, which says its checks showed slippage in wallboard pricing, especially in the eastern U.S. Shares had plunged 9.2% and 4.5%, respectively, at their lowest points about an hour ago.

    Unsure:

     

    Sure, Blackrock bought huge positions in foreclosures, as a favor to somebody (who?) in order to "camouflage" reality, but lose their butts in the process. Maybe, they're run by the Fed. That's it!

     

    If you believe this tripe, what are you doing here? You should be authoring a conspiracy blog somewhere.

    No conspiracy, but no housing correction either..Blackrocks purchases don't skew the figures at all??? Did i say favor? Please don't put words in my mouth....

    Domestic and foreign big money financed by vast amounts of almost free credit(unavailable of course to ordinary middle class families) is heavily speculating in residential real estate as a rental bet.
    As the home ownership rate continues to fall to 35 year lows, this money avers that a generation long boom in renting is in its early years.
    For a season this force feeding of capital will cause a resurgent bubble in housing prices in selected zip codes ....until this same money seeks an exit after confessing that effective, after tax returns on rental property are low to very low and most rental properties do not offer good returns in the absence of at least some annual price increases.
