I continue to believe that you cannot have a job-creating economic recovery without participation from the market for new homes.

With the Federal Reserve describing the housing sector as "depressed" it is not contributing the 17% of economic growth as it did in almost all post-WWII recoveries.

The Federal Reserve has provided numerous credit facilities to bail out Wall Street and the regional banks, but it is unwilling to provide a mortgage facility for community banks and homebuilders on Main Street. Without help, the homebuilder stocks are vulnerable.
