NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The volatile price performances of the homebuilder stocks in 2013 have provided trading opportunities as an important segment of our economy attempts to return to leadership.On Sept. 9 I wrote, Housing Bubble Is Re-inflating and included the fact that at the May 20 high for the PHLX Housing Sector Index (^HGX) (170.76) was up 22.6%. At that time the housing index was the best performing industry of those that I frequently profile. At the year to date low on Aug. 15, the housing index was down 4.2% on the year. At Wednesday's close the housing index has re-inflated to a year to date gain of 6.9%.
