    Home builders (XHB +1.8%) ranked among today's top gainers on surging single-family housing starts and existing home sales rising at the highest pace since the first-time homebuyer tax credit artificially sparked sales in mid-2010. But hold the champagne; a Harvard analyst still sees single-family starts rising only to ~1M, "not even half-way back to where we should be in terms of long-term trends."

    Barry Ritholtz picks apart Barron's housing bottom call (its 3rd since 2008), noting among other things the heralded drop in distressed home sales (and increase in prices) is the result of a year of banks abating foreclosures during robosigning settlement discussions. As for homebuilders, factors driving their stock gains are far different from what drive home prices.

    After a 72% Y/Y rise in the XHB, the housing recovery rates the cover at Barron's. "We're in the early stages," says Lennar (LEN) President Rick Beckwith. The industry could triple in size to 1.8M housing starts in the next 3-4 years, says Ivy Zelman, who thinks Lennar could earn $5.30/share in FY15 vs. $0.48 last year. A more speculative play is Beazer (BZH), which isn't yet profitable, but has eased short-term liquidity fears with recent capital raises.

    No bad news is good new for the homebuilders today, as the July Existing Home Sales report comes in largely as expected. Still, today's data shows that existing home sales are sharply underperforming the new home market, as seen in the contrast between today's small sales rise and last Thursday's 6.8% housing permits jump to a cycle-high 812k rate. TOL +4.7%, NVR +0.5%, DHI +5.1%, MDC +5.2%, LEN +4.9%, HOV +4,2%, RYL +4.8%, BZH +3.8%. ETFs: XHB +2%, ITB +2.8%.

    MKM Partners makes a bullish call on homebuilders, upgrading KB Home (KBH +1.8%) and D.R. Horton (DHI +1.7%) along the way. The firm expects new home sales growth to accelerate heading into fall, which in turn will lift valuations. Positive comments made by KB following its FQ2 report, together with equity offerings from Meritage (MTH) and Beazer (BZH), are seen as reasons for optimism. (Hovnanian)

    Homebuilder stocks are taking a hit despite the upbeat tone of May's New Home Sales earlier today. Results show just 4.7 months of inventory available, well below the 14.3 months seen in early 2009, and lower than the six months considered to represent a healthy market: XHB -1.4%, PHM -2.1%, DHI -1.2%, TOL -1.5%, KBH -1.7%, MDC -1.9%, NVR -1.5%.

    Homebuilder stocks (XHB -4.8%) are crushed in the wake of today's jobs report: PHM -10.4%, LEN -7.4%, DHI -8.5%, TOL -6.1%, KBH -5.5%. Fannie Mae's Doug Duncan recalls the spring-to-summer slowdown pattern of each of the last two years: "If this pattern recurs, we expect that hopes for a meaningful housing recovery will be delayed once again."
