BALTIMORE (Stockpickr) -- I like homebuilders right now. There, I said it.
Despite the stellar rally homebuiling stocks have pulled off in 2012 and the constant trickle of positive housing data that's been hitting Wall Street so far this year, it still sounds wrong to like homebuilders. Sure, I get it -- investors who owned homebuilding stocks got their teeth knocked in after the housing bubble burst, so a lot of folks are still hesitant to like homebuilding stocks.
Maybe hesitant is an understatement. Let's face it: Most investors were too nervous to buy homebuilders at the start of the year when the housing data started turning, and they're even more nervous now that homebuilding stocks have made such a big run.
