Other names in the industry include Centex (CTX); Lennar (LEN); Brookfield Homes (BHS); The Ryland Group (RYL); Avator (AVTR); and Tarragon (TARR).
Investors might also consider a homebuilder focused, yet more diversified, exchange-traded fund. The SPDR S&P Homebuilders (XHB) includes multi-family exposure and stands to benefit from ongoing demand for apartments over standalone dwellings in parts of the country where real estate values remain depressed. Retailers Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) are also folded into this ETF. Lackluster sale prospects are keeping some homeowners in their current residence longer than they expected, so they're remodeling to stay put.
