    • Weyerhaeuser (WY) has reportedly received preliminary expressions of interest for its home-building unit from unnamed suitors. The timber conglomerate said in June that it was evaluating the options for the business, which is valued at over $3B.
    • Most of the biggest house builders in the country are expected to look at buying the operations, attracted by the thousands of lots it owns that are ready or close to ready for construction, especially in California.
    • "It's going to move the needle for most builders," says Florida-based consultant Michael Kahn.

    Goldman assembles a list of 25 dividend favorites with unusually high volatility - meaning put sellers are getting a hefty premium for agreeing to buy the stock at a lower price. Make sure you want the stock first. The strategy works well sometimes and is the proverbial catching a falling knife at others.

    Moody's upgrades its outlook for the equity REIT industry to Stable. The sector is "well positioned to handle the fragile economic outlook and the potential for rising interest rates," the ratings agency says, in a new report. Moody's Senior VP notes that REITs have "access to multiple capital sources … at historically low rates that have lengthened their debt maturity profiles," boosted earnings, and increased fixed charge coverage ratios.
