NVR (NYSE:NVR) reported disappointing quarterly results on Monday. The historically conservative homebuilder posted revenue and earnings growth that fell short of Wall Street expectations. The shares recovered most of Monday's losses, but the Virginia-based developer still closed 2% lower on the day.
This is going to be a busy week for homebuilders. Pulte (NYSE:PHM) and D.R. Horton (NYSE:DHI) will join NVR in reporting later this week. Analysts see strong growth at both companies, but investors shouldn't be surprised if Pulte and D.R. Horton also fall short.
The housing market may be booming right now, but buyers are starting to get cold feet judging by a surprising year-over-year spike in the cancellation rate of new orders at NVR.
