    Up 26% so far this year, are home builder stocks too frothy?

    Few industries have staged a more remarkable turnaround during the past six months than home builders, and with the promise of low interest rates, a healthy consumer and data showing new home sales surging, it looks like blue skies ahead for the home construction industry. The central question for investors in these stocks, experts say, is whether home builders can cater to the pent-up demand for affordable, entry-level homes as the millennial generation enters its prime home-buying years. “Affordability of housing is the key factor,” Pat Tschosik, senior sector strategist at Ned Davis Research, told MarketWatch.

    After Chilly Winter, Homebuilders To Share Earnings With High Hopes Ahead

    As some homebuilders and home-improvement retailers start to roll out their Q1 earnings results, we might see the soft numbers in housing starts and residential building permits over the first months of the year coming home to roost as weak housing market trends persist. Remember that housing starts tumbled 8.7% in February, and building permits were down 1.6% as well, according to the Commerce Department. Unfortunately, we’re not sure yet how accurate those February housing starts and building permit numbers were.

    Home builder stock knocked broadly lower after existing-home sales data disappoints

    The home builder sector was knocked broadly lower morning trade Monday, after data showing that existing-home sales for March fell more than expected. The iShares U.S. Home Construction ETF dropped 1.1%, with 40 of 47 components trading lower, to pull back from Thursday's 8-month closing high. Among the most-active home builder shares, D.R. Horton Inc. slumped 1.9%, KB Home shed 1.5%, Lennar Corp. lost 1.3%, Toll Brothers Inc. fell 1.1% and TRI Pointe Group Inc. slid 1.9%. Earlier, the National Association of Realtors said Monday that March existing-home sales ran at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.21 million, down 4.9% from February and below expectations of a 5.3 million rate. The home construction ETF has still climbed 26% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 16%.

    10 S&P 500 Stocks to Weather the Earnings Storm

    Earnings season is underway, and while it's been far from disastrous, it's not been a cause for enormous celebration either. Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), J B Hunt Transport Services (NASDAQ:JBHT) and Lennar (NYSE:LEN) all three missed estimates of one form or another. They're fairly high-profile names from a broad spectrum of industries that may portend more disappointments.Not every stock is hanging by a thread though. There are still stocks to buy that are well-positioned for market-beating growth driven by solid earnings growth. Granted, not all of these companies are media darlings or fan favorites, but that's ok. Sometimes it's the lesser-followed tickers that end up being most rewarding. * 7 Stocks That Can Outperform for Years With that as the backdrop, here's a rundown of the top then S&P 500 stocks that offer the best chance of sidestepping an earnings-driven headwind. Some may be a bit off of the beaten path, but each of them bring better than average upside potential to the table.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips United Parcel Service (UPS)To be clear, the first quarter profit UPS (NYSE:UPS) is expected to report just a few days from now should be lower than the year-ago bottom line. Indeed, the full-year's earnings are projected to drop as well. Between rising fuel costs, Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) starting to handle more of its own delivery work and the perception of a general economic slowdown crimping demand for shipping services, investors are understandably concerned.Those same investors, however, may have overshot their target. The pros are calling for an earnings rebound next year on the same steady sales growth UPS has consistently driven. But, at a forward-looking P/E of 13.8, UPS stock is a bargain.The clincher: Built on recently-achieved efficiencies, UPS is about to launch a major pricing overhaul that customers and non-customers should respond to. Rockwell Automation (ROK)Investors looking for bargain-priced S&P 500 stocks won't think much of Rockwell Automation (NYSE:ROK). It's anything but cheap, looking forward or looking backward.ROK stock's never been particularly cheap though. And it doesn't have to be. Regardless of ratios, the market may be underestimating the company's future. * 7 Dental Stocks to Buy That Will Make You Smile This year could prove to be pivotal one for industrial manufacturing. 5G connectivity is officially here, and factory owners are finally starting to embrace the upside of automation. It's a trend that plays right into the hand Rockwell Automation has been holding for a while now. ROK specializes in the melding of technology, artificial intelligence, manufacturing and software. Any sort of improvement in the global trade landscape could be just the nudge Rockwell needs. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)HP Enterprise (NYSE:HPE) had a pretty rough 2017, and never really worked its way out of that rut. It's not especially well-deserved weakness though.Hewlett Packard Enterprise is, of course, the business-oriented half of the split the old HP went through in late-2015. The stock got off to a good start, but investors largely viewed the institutional half of the company as missing out on the explosion of cloud computing.That's not actually been the case though. HPE is arguably a pace-setter in hybrid cloud, with the company recently announcing partnerships with Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) division Google to simplify the use of hybrid cloud solutions. HPE stock is also priced at a very affordable 9.5x forward earnings. Kellogg Company (K)Don't look now, but Kellogg (NYSE:K) shares may be on the mend after being rocked in 2018.Granted, most food stocks are doing the same. They all took big hits in 2018 on rising delivery costs as well as rising commodity costs, causing a relatively big hit to relatively thin margins. Shipping costs are still frothy, but the industry has at least gotten a grip on its inefficiencies. For Kellogg, that means shedding established brands including Keebler and Famous Amos. * 3 Solar Stocks to Buy for a New Day in Solar Energy More important, the market is responding bullishly. After hitting bottom in March, K stock has broken above a key falling resistance line and just this week has pushed its way above the 100-day moving average line. Gap (GPS)Yes, the so-called retail apocalypse is still in full swing, and yes, the trendy apparel sliver of the industry has been hit especially hard. Gap (NYSE:GPS) hasn't been an exception to that norm.Gap, however, has also been hit unfairly hard.It was brutalized in 2015 when the scales really started to tip in favor of other fashion looks, and just when it looked like the worst was over in 2017, the bears growled again in 2018. The Gap, along with its other brands like Old Navy, Banana Republic and Janie and Jack, just aren't the same draw they used to me when mall-shopping was in its prime and consumers cared about sporting a certain look.Nevertheless, GPS stock appears to have made a hard bottom at $24.00, and is not testing the waters of another rebound attempt. A better-paced move above the $200-day moving average line at $26.90 could be just the catalyst the bulls need. Intel (INTC)Yes, rival Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) mostly caught Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) two years ago when it unveiled its Ryzen processor that matched up with Intel's CPUs at a fraction of the cost. In the meantime, the discovery of a couple different security flaws in Intel's chips dented the computing icon's reputation.Rumors of Intel's death, however, have been greatly exaggerated.Reality: Yes, Intel got lazy, and sloppy, assuming it couldn't be dethroned. It responded to competitive threats and gaffes with full force though, and the 30% gain logged since October of last year speaks volumes about the market's perception of that effort. * 5 Fast Food Stocks That Are Cooking With Fire As big as that gain is though, INTC stock is still cheap relative to most other S&P 500 stocks, priced at only 12 times its projected 2020 earnings. Omnicom Group (OMC)Omnicom Group (NYSE:OMC), for the unfamiliar, is a media, marketing and communications company. Specifically, Omnicom has mastered the art and science of combining online and offline efforts to maximize client sales. It's not easy.More important, it's a service that will only see demand grow going forward. While things should be slow this year for Omnicom, the company is expected to get back on a growth track next year.The shape of the OMC chart suggests investors are quietly maneuvering in anticipation of a breakout. They may be unconsciously planning such a breakout, in fact. The move above a couple of different technical ceilings near $78 has been a little overzealous and leaves the stock ripe for a small pullback. The bulls, however, may have just tipped their very bullish hand. Colgate-Palmolive (CL)Last year was an especially tough one for Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE:CL), and by extension, for its shareholders. From high to low, CL stock fell a total of 24%, for a myriad of reasons. Broadly speaking though, its products and brands simply fell out of favor as consumers opted for alternatives.Some observers don't expect 2019 to be any better, calling for more slowing of growth. * 7 Stocks That Can Outperform for Years The overall market, however, thinks differently. After making a double bottom last year around $57, CL stock has managed to fight its way above September's high around $68.30. And, there's still room to keep running before the early 2018 peak is challenged. Twitter (TWTR)There was a time not that long ago when it wasn't clear Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) would survive, unable to turn a profit. The microblogging platform has proven those critics wrong though, swinging to a profit of 14 cents per share in 2014 and growing its bottom line almost every year since. This year's expected bottom line is 86 cents per share, but analysts have been underestimating the company's profits.The stock's been rewarding too, though not as consistent. Namely, after a big rally in 2017 and early 2018, TWTR stock tumbled. Even then, however, there's been a bullish tone evident in the aftermath. A horizontal ceiling has taken shape around $35, but after forming a bottom near $26 since October, the stock's started to make higher lows. It appears the buyers are anticipating a breakout thrust, but are still waiting for the right catalyst. T. Rowe Price Group (TROW)Finally, add T. Rowe Price Group (NASDAQ:TROW) to your list of S&P 500 stocks that may well shrug off earnings-minded marketwide weakness. The mutual fund company may post lethargic results this year, but investors are already looking ahead to next year's projected revenue growth of 4.7% and earnings improving from 2019's projection of $7.05 per share to 2020's 7.42. * 5 Stocks to Profit From (Legal) Insider Buying Signals The shape of the TROW stock chart confirms this optimism. After taking on too much water in 2018, sending the stock from a high near $124 to a low near $85, investors have pushed T. Rowe shares in a straight line all the way back to $105. There's plenty more room to reclaim, and the trend is loaded with momentum.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Home Depot Stock Could Be Headed for Some Hard Times

    It would appear foolish to argue against Home Depot (NYSE:HD). Home Depot clearly is one of the best retailers in the world - and the dominant force in U.S. home improvement. Annual revenue recently eclipsed $100 billion. And HD stock has been a star performer since the financial crisis: Home Depot stock has gained over 400% since late 2011.Source: Shutterstock But I've argued for close to eighteen months now that HD stock is too expensive, as I wrote in December 2017. The stock admittedly has gained about 6% since then, and paid another 3%+ in dividends. But that performance has been worse than that of the market as a whole and includes a 15% gain so far this year.Indeed, looking at the chart, Home Depot stock seems to have a clear path toward retaking all-time highs, reached last September, of $215. But looking at the business, there are concerns here. The housing market isn't exactly strong. The economy is in year ten of an expansion, which may reverse. Home Depot's top competitor is retooling, and Home Depot stock isn't exactly cheap.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Medical Marijuana Stocks to Cure Your Portfolio To be sure, Home Depot is a wonderful company; that's not in dispute. The question is at what price investors should be willing to invest in that wonderful company. HD Stock Underperforms?Like a number of housing stocks, HD stock has benefited from the reversal in market sentiment in 2019. The reversal isn't necessarily surprising: in December, I called out the iShares US Home Construction ETF (BATS:ITB) as my choice for the Best ETF of 2019.Home Depot stock is a significant holding of that ETF, though the two largest positions are homebuilders Lennar (NYSE:LEN) and D.R. Horton (NYSE:DHI).And in fact, the ETF has outperformed HD stock, returning 19% YTD. As I wrote in December, the problem for trying to time the lows in Home Depot stock was that other housing plays looked much more attractive.That's been the case so far this year, and it's still the case. LEN and DHI still trade a single-digit multiples to earnings per share. Construction suppliers like American Woodmark (NASDAQ:AMWD) and Jeld-Wen (NYSE:JELD) have rebounded this year - but remain cheap, and well off 2018 highs.The issue with HD stock thus remains. To own it, an investor has to have some faith in the mid-term housing market (and the economy) staying strong enough to drive renovation spending. If the market does stay strong, however, there are better choices out there. If it doesn't, investors won't keep paying nearly 20x earnings for a cyclical retailer like Home Depot. Home Depot Stock Has Stalled out BeforeMeanwhile, it might seem like HD stock simply outperforms the market no matter what. Over time, that has been true. But HD also has had long periods of not just underperformance but negative performance.Between the beginning of 2000 and the beginning of 2010, a ten-year stretch, Home Depot stock lost nearly half its value. Obviously, there's some cherry-picking there: the start of the decade saw the dot-com boom (which boosted stocks outside of tech) and the end of the decade came just months after the worst moments of the financial crisis. Still, for about twelve years, HD stock was dead money.That's not to say that HD is going to lose half of its value this decade or even that it will stall out for the next few years. Rather, the point is that valuation and timing matter, even for a quality company. That's doubly true for a cyclical play like Home Depot.And at this point in the cycle, almost 20x earnings simply isn't cheap. In fact, the stock is just a few dollars from the average analyst target price. That's exactly where it sat in late 2017. A year later, HD was down 15%. Is Lowe's on the Way?In addition, Home Depot's biggest competitor, Lowe's Companies (NYSE:LOW), is affecting a turnaround. And as James Brumley wrote last month, Lowe's "is finally starting to close the gap".It's not quite a zero-sum game between Home Depot and Lowe's. Better sales at Lowe's may not come from its larger rival, but from independent stores and those that operate under the Ace Hardware and True Value banners.Still, a stronger Lowe's means tougher competition for Home Depot. And with investors expecting 4-6% same-store sales growth going forward, and the stock not cheap (again, due to cyclical exposure), it doesn't take much to change the narrative here. Be Careful with HDNone of this is to say that Home Depot is a short. But, at these prices, it's not a slam dunk, either. Any housing hiccups could end the recent rally. Macro concerns tanked the stock in the fourth quarter, and may return again soon. If the external environment stays benign, investors might benefit more from other housing plays.It does seem from my perspective like the rally is due to stall out. There's at least a case for taking profits - or hoping for a better price.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.
