Armstrong World (AWI) - Get Report , Lennox International (LII) - Get Report , Masco (MAS) - Get Report , Owens Corning (OC) - Get Report and Vulcan Materials (VMC) - Get Report provide products and materials to each segment of the housing market, including new home construction, home resales and home improvement. These companies are also expected to benefit from infrastructure spending across the country.

Infrastructure spending is not only for roads, tunnels and bridges. It's for water treatment, improvements in communication, schools, hospitals and urban renewal efforts, too.

Armstrong World provides ceilings and cabinets. Lennox provides air conditioning and heating systems. Masco provides home improvement and building products. Owens Corning makes insulation, roofing and siding products. Vulcan Materials makes the ingredients for concrete and cement. An improving housing market plus demand from infrastructure spending should help these companies in 2017.

Shares of all of them faded by mid-December, despite the Trump rally. Should you build on these stocks? Here's the scorecard for the housing index and the five housing-related stocks.
