    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)

    Beazer Homes (BZH) -9.8% after saying it will offer $75M in common stock and the same amount in tangible equity units. Of the proceeds, the home builder plans invest up to $100M in real-estate in Florida, California, Texas, North Carolina and Arizona. (PR)

    A look at what homebuilders (XHB) are saying suggests there is something real behind the rally in their stocks; the three big builders reporting last week - MDC, SPF, BZH - said closings and net new orders rose nicely Y/Y and from two years earlier. But shares are much more expensive; investors buying home builders now should be comfortable buying the broader economy and stock market.

    Among homebuilder shares, Toll Brothers' (TOL -4.9%) unexpected FQ1 loss outweighs January's rise in U.S. existing home sales: BZH -5.5%, KBH -4.5%, MHO -5.9%, MTH -5.5%, RYL -4.4%. Shares slide despite optimistic remarks from TOL CEO Doug Yearley that "in general the market feels healthier than it did one year ago."

    The rally in KB Home (KBH +9.7%) today coincided with an SEC filing indicating that investment firm BlackRock had recently increased its KBH holdings to 7.2M, a 9.3% stake. The move extended the stock’s YTD gain to 78% and moving it closer to a golden cross; DHI and BZH are other large home builders already reaching that level.

    Lazard Capital Markets' Michael Lewis issues a warning shot over defense industry stocks, as he notes that the strategy of firms such as Northrop Grumman (NOC) and Booz Allen Hamilton (BZH) of growing profits by cutting costs could catch up to them this year. "All the low-hanging fruit has already been picked. There’s not much fat in the infrastructure."
