    CNBC's Jim Cramer isn't worried so much about Fed tapering anymore. He's watching the 10-year bond. "When the ten-year goes down," Cramer says, "people step in and start buying." Stocks like Whirlpool (WHR), Toll Bros (TOL) banks that are levered to mortgages. If we can get 10-year rates to around 2.01% there, he thinks we could have a big rally. (Video).

    Toll Brothers (TOL -1.2%) slips today, despite being upgraded to a Buy by analyst Megan McGrath at MKM Partners. McGrath says that TOL's status as one of the more niche luxury homebuilders may become more valuable as the housing market continues to grow and lower end competition intensifies. She recommends investors buy the shares ahead of H213 as the stock could be pushed higher by the closing of the Touraine building.

    Meritage Homes (MTH +5.2%) moves higher today on a solid Q1 earnings beat this morning. The number of closed homes for the quarter jumped 17% as closing surged 39% and orders jumped 35%. What's really driving the stock right now is its forecast for FY13. The homebuilder's EPS forecast, based on a 40% increase in closings revenue the rest of the year, puts the midpoint of its profit estimate more than 15% above consensus views - which were already double that from 2012. It now expects to earn between $2.20 - 2.45, versus Street estimates of $2.04.

    Homebuilder stocks aren't taking much encouragement off the bigger number in Housing Starts today, as the underlying data doesn't appear to be strong enough to offset yesterday's drubbing: BZH -0.7%, TMHC -0.2%, HOV -0.2%, DHI +0.9%, KBH +0.5%, PHM +1.6%, LEN +0.9%, TOL +1%. Building materials suppliers on the other hand don't care what kind of homes are being built, and are having a much better day on the news: LII +2.3%, WSO +2%, SHW +3.3%, LPX +3.6%).

    Homebuilding stocks have been on a tear now for over a year now, with leaders like KB Home (KBH), PulteGroup (PHM), Lennar (LEN), and Toll Brothers (TOL) all racking up solid gains. With such a big move already underway in the sector, today's $200M IPO announcement by William Lyon Homes (WLH), along with the $602M Taylor Morrison (TMHC) IPO due out later this week, may be viewed by some contrarians as a sign of a top in the market.

    Homebuilder stocks are moving away from trading on the macro news and beginning to trade more on company-specific fundamentals, according to Wells Fargo. While most homebuilder shares have outperformed the S&P 500 over the last twelve months, different patterns are starting to emerge. Performance within the sector is beginning to fragment. Over the last week for example, half of the builders the firm follows outperformed while half underperformed. Similarly over the last month, only 5 of the 12 outperformed.
