U.S. home sales fall for second consecutive month while consumer confidence drops to a 21-month low

Why you might want to reduce your investments in homebuilder stocks

homemodels
From Richard Suttmeier: D.R. Horton  (DHI - Get Report) , KB Home (KBH - Get Report) , Lennar  (LEN - Get Report) , PulteGroup (PHM - Get Report) and Toll Brothers  (TOL - Get Report) are the major homebuilder stocks to focus on now. My call is to reduce holdings on these stocks as each is solidly in bull market territory vs. their fourth-quarter 2018 lows. Four of the five are in bear market territory from their July 2005 highs. This is evidence that the market for single-family homes has stalled.

Data justifies strength in homebuilder stocks

From John S. Tobey:

The homebuilding market continues to look healthy. Monday's (6/17) release of the Housing Market Index by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is the latest. Each month NAHB surveys homebuilders using a few, sound questions that address visible conditions as well as homebuilders' sense of what is coming over the next six months.

As mortgage rates continue to fall, will housing sales increase?

homemodels
From Dan Caplinger:

The housing market has made big strides forward over the past decade since the financial crisis, recovering from its historic declines in the mid-2000s and seeing big gains in average home prices in many popular markets across the nation. Yet the rise in prices combined with rapidly increasing mortgage rates over the past couple of years made housing far less affordable, especially in pricier areas of the country.

A rate cut would cause these ETFs to surge

From Sweta Killa: Fed Chair Powell has suspended the three-year monetary policy tightening program and has signaled his openness to cut rates if needed. This is especially true as Powell commented at the Conference on Monetary Strategy, Tools and Communications Practice that "the Fed is closely monitoring the implications of the trade tensions on the economy and would act as appropriate to sustain the expansion, given a strong labor market and inflation near 2% target."
