Credit Suisse has issued a new coverage rating systems for its homebuilder universe.  These are some of the calls we saw in the sector:

  • Centex (NYSE: CTX), DR Horton (NYSE: DHI), and KB Home (NYSE: KBH) were all started with “Outperform” ratings.
  • MDC Holdings (NYSE: MDC) and NVR (NYSE: NVR) were both started as Neutral.
  • Hovnanian (NYSE: HOV) and Meritage Homes (NYSE: MTH) were started as “Underperform.”

We’ll follow up if we see any of the other calls in the sector out of Credit Suisse.
