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.
