Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of homebuilders -- and PulteGroup
So what: After Toll Brothers
Now what: Housing has to bottom out sometime, right? Today, TheStreet.com made the argument that a contrarian approach is the way to go, and that homebuilders are a great buy. But fellow Fool Rick Munarriz thinks caution is still in order. Only time will tell who is right, but I would tread cautiously today. Toll Brothers reported a profit this week, but it wasn't terribly impressive. This bounce by PulteGroup and others could be more of a dead-cat bounce. Buyer beware!
