    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.

    Though the blowout numbers kind of speak for themselves, Robert Toll makes the bullish case for homebuilders in Toll's (TOL) earnings report: He notes a Harvard study showing household formations 1.8M-2.8M less than what would have been expected given population growth since 2007. Recent trends show these formations are starting to catch up. New homes built in 2012 will be about 750K, about half of what's needed to keep up with formations.

    Whitney Tilson significantly boosted his stake in Netflix (NFLX) in Q3, adding ~56K shares and over 102K call options. Those purchases probably weren't faring well at the end of September (the listing date for the positions disclosed in Tilson's 13F), but look better after Carl Icahn came to the rescue. Tilson also increased his stake in Apple (AAPL) and bought Toll Brothers (TOL) puts.
