Rally in Home Builders Slowing: Barclays Analyst

The rally in home builders looks to slow down, suggesting it’s time to switch to a few stocks that haven’t run up as much as their peers, Barclays analyst Stephen Kim said Tuesday on CNBC.

“The case we were making, actually, in our report is that the U.S. housing market was actually going to continue to roll along. In fact, because we think we see supply constraints actually starting to develop, we actually think home price appreciation is going to exceed what most people think,” he said on “Fast Money.”

Kim said that the bullish outlook for the U.S. housing industry could mean another 15 percent in top-quality names like Toll Brothers and Lennar.

“The best names get picked off real early, and valuations get pushed up to levels where they’re probably, frankly, pretty full right now,” he said.

That makes it time to move to names like KB Home or PulteGroup , “which still leave more room to the upside,” he added.
