Homebuilders Are Rolling Over

Stocks in this article: HGX DHI LEN MDC TOL

Source: Thomson Reuters

The daily chart for HGX is negative, with the index below its 21-day simple moving average at 137.02 and just above its 50-day at 129.62. Given a close below the 50-day level, the risk is to the 200-day at 116.81.

The table above shows data from and my value levels, pivots and risky levels. Use the value levels, pivots and risky levels for your "buy and trade" strategies.

D R Horton (DHI) ($17.63) -- My annual value level is $14.45 with a quarterly pivot at $16.79 with a monthly risky level at $19.79.

Lennar Corp. (LEN) ($28.97) -- My semiannual value level is $23.97 with a quarterly pivot at $28.89 and monthly risky level at $34.05.

MDC Holdings (MDC) ($31.77) -- My quarterly value level is $24.94 with an annual pivot at $32.81 and monthly risky level at $35.71.

Meritage Homes (MTH) ($34.57) -- My semiannual value level is $29.82 with a quarterly pivot at $33.00 and monthly risky level at $36.60.

Pulte Group (PHM) ($11.04) -- My semiannual value level is $8.35 with an annual pivot at $11.37 and monthly risky level at $12.54.

Ryland Group (RYL) ($23.43) -- My quarterly value level is $20.68 with a monthly risky level at $27.09.

Standard & Pacific (SPF) ($5.62) -- My semiannual value level is $4.26 with a quarterly pivot at $5.15 and monthly risky level at $6.47.

Toll Brothers (TOL) ($28.97) -- My semiannual value level is $24.20 with an annual pivot at $29.30 and monthly risky level at $31.92.

I advocate the use of GTC Limit Orders to add to long positions or become less short on share price weakness to the value levels. Traders should enter GTC Limit Orders to reduce long positions or to add to a short position on strength to risky levels.
