    Homebuilders could face negative rating actions in the coming months, Fitch Ratings says, as "home prices likely [will] remain soft over at least the next few quarters." The pressures have already prompted recent Fitch downgrades of Beazer (BZH -2.2%), KB Home (KBH -4.8%) and Pulte (PHM -6.8%). Also: TOL -3.3%, DHI -4.5%, LEN -3.7%.

    Though homebuilders' stocks have been in the doldrums, UBS says the sector is worth a second look: "Although recent macro news has increased the potential for further downside in the broader housing market, we believe new homes are less susceptible to meaningful declines off current levels." They couldn't get much worse, could they? UBS likes DHI +4.1%, LEN +5.1%, TOL +1.6%.
