The Builders

in Stocks, Technical Analysis

The Home builders as a group had great 2012, $HOV $SPF $BZH $RYL $LEN $TOL.  They were hated on the way up and still are, you can tell by looking at how heavily shorted these stocks are even though the stocks have moved up between 30-100%.

Fast forward to today and they are all down multiple days in a row, some are testing previous breakout levels, significant averages etc…  If you believe in the sector,  today is a good day to take a look at them on the long side.

Here are some great charts via SchaefferResearch that show the stock price along with the amount of shares that are short in the float, this will give you an idea of how much these stocks are hated.

$HOV;

$SPF;
