It's all good, gave me a chance to put an underperform in on RYL. Can't believe it went up today.

Well, clearly this plunge marks the bottom of the market, making it now safe to buy builder stocks, right?

even if builder stocks don't pull back they have limited upside from current levels over the next year.....  i count 10 top 200 (5%) builder bankruptcies, yet the pie of opportunities is cut 60%..... do the math....................  take out profits related to land appreciation that were captured during the run up and builders are going to be smaller, less profitable (through land) and in a more competitve environment (no bankruptcies).....
