    Homebuilder stocks are getting crushed, but one analyst says the chart looks so bad — it's good

    Homebuilder stocks are getting hammered. While some investors are avoiding homebuilders amid rising interest rates that traditionally serve as a headwind for the economically sensitive group of stocks, others say evidence is mounting for a bounce. The XHB began accelerating its losses this year once the U.S. 10-year Treasury yield broke above 2.8 percent, said Todd Gordon, technical analyst and founder of TradingAnalysis.com.

    The housing slump is not (yet) a recession

    While Wall Street has focused on trade, interest rates, and the midterm elections, a potentially bigger risk to the markets has gone almost unnoticed: Housing starts have slid, prices in some high-profile markets have weakened, and share prices of publicly traded homebuilders have plummeted. Home purchases have a multiplier effect on consumer spending, since they often generate further sales of furniture, appliances, electronics, and marble or granite kitchen counters. • Since January, when the total of new privately owned housing units started hit an 11-year high of 1,334,000 units (annualized), housing starts have fallen to 1.2 million annually in September, according to the U.S. Bureau of the Census.

    D.R. Horton matches profit expectations, revenue comes up shy

    D.R. Horton Inc. reported Thursday fiscal fourth-quarter earnings that matched expectations, but revenue that came up shy, as rising prices and higher interest rates have led to some moderation in demand. The stock was still inactive in premarket trade. Net income rose to $466.1 million, or $1.22 a share, from $313.2 million, or 82 cents a share, in the same period a year ago. The FactSet consensus for earnings per share was $1.22. Revenue increased to $5.51 billion from $4.16 billion, below the FactSet consensus of $4.55 billion. Homes closed rose 11% to 14,674, matching the FactSet consensus, as the value of homes closed increased 9% to $4.4 billion. Net sales orders grew 11% to 11,509 homes and homes in inventory as of Sept. 30 rose 13% to 29,700 homes. "Sales prices for both new and existing homes have increased across most of our markets over the past several years, which coupled with rising interest rates has impacted affordability and resulted in some moderation of demand for homes, particularly at higher price points," said Chairman Donald Horton. "However, we continue to see good demand and a limited supply of homes at affordable prices across our markets, and economic fundamentals and financing availability remain solid." The stock has tumbled 20% year to date, while the SPDR S&P Homebuilders ETF has shed 26% and the S&P 500 has gained 5.3%.

    Trump was Wrong about the Market

Well, initially this looks to be right.  The Dow Jones Industrials (DIA) are up 2% along with the S&P 500 (SPX), while the Nasdaq (QQQ) is up 2.5%.  So far, so good.

    A sharp slowdown in the housing market has led to worries that a repeat of the subprime meltdown of 2007–08 might be brewing, but the Nobel Laureate economist who predicted that crisis believes that such fears are overblown today.

    Yields Head Lower on Weaker-than-Expected Housing Data

    The yields on benchmark Treasury notes headed lower Wednesday as the Commerce Department reported weaker-than-expected new home sales, which dropped by 5.5% during September--its lowest level since 2016. "Anyone watching home builder stocks or watching the data all year should not be surprised but its's clear this important area of the US economy, highly sensitive to price and rates, has obviously slowed sharply," said Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer for the Bleakley Advisory Group. The new home sales data comes as housing starts also fell more than expected, sliding by 5.3% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.201 million units last month, according to the Commerce Department.

    Trump v. Obama: Market Smackdown

    CNBC published this story earlier about what has changed since Donald Trump has been president.  Take a look at the article here: https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/20/chart-shows-how-everything-has-changed-since-trump-became-president.html?&qsearchterm=trump. What has the stock market done since Trump took office (not elected – took office – you can’t do anything as the President-elect)?  Why is this important?  Because it shows how and if the policies enacted have and will be effective in boosting the economy and thus the market.  Why do I care about the market primarily?  Because that is what I do – that is what I trade.  I am very glad for the millions more employed and higher wages, but what has the market done, and where is it telling me the economy is going? Hmmm.  Before I get hate mail – I know that the market and interest rate positions were very different.  Here are some points for and against each.  First – obviously, President Obama’s presidency started in a rut.  However, it is important to note that the from the time that President Obama got elected to the bottom of the market in March (of roughly 666 on the S&P 500), the market dropped a solid 20%.
