Pier 1 Imports (PIR) and Whirlpool (WHR) are among his favorite housing market recovery-related stocks.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng index finished down by 0.08% as investors awaited more clarity on the economic reform plans of China's new leaders.

Gold for December delivery dropped $7.30 to settle at $1,742.30 an ounce at the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange, while January crude oil contracts slipped 56 cents to close at $87.18.
