“There is more news flow than ever and deciphering it by the market and by the builder is very difficult. Housing Tides Builder Equity Research does just that and cuts through the clutter for busy professionals,” said Housing Tides CEO, Steve Byers.

As an equity analyst or asset manager, you need to allocate your clients’ resources in a way that maximizes returns and minimizes risk. Investment professionals can already easily access detailed company financials, but a report that examines where each homebuilder operates, and the state of those markets is not readily available. The opportunity cost of poorly-chosen investments is substantial and can drive market underperformance, while investors with a more comprehensive suite of information at hand are positioned to earn outsized returns. To this end, you should assess housing investments in light of both actual fundamentals and public perception of those investments.

Housing Tides Builder Equity Research includes a record of each company’s active selling communities in the nation’s largest homebuilding markets, leveraging the proprietary Housing Tides Index™ to evaluate the health of the major markets where each builder does business and identify key macroeconomic strengths and weaknesses. The report also utilizes IBM Watson® Natural Language Understanding capabilities to parse content from major news sources that discuss each publicly-traded builder. Sentiment analysis of media coverage facilitates understanding of public perception surrounding these companies, and Housing Tides research has identified a correlation between news sentiment and stock prices. Additionally, investors can save time when performing due diligence with timely access to a history of relevant news coverage, such as the Weyerhaeuser joist defect that affected builder revenues and deliveries earlier this year.

“There is more news flow than ever and deciphering it by the market and by the builder is very difficult. Housing Tides Builder Equity Research does just that and cuts through the clutter for busy professionals,” said Housing Tides CEO, Steve Byers.

Now Available, the Builder Equity Research is a supplement created to be used along with the context of Tides’ National and Local reports as a compliment to Housing Tides National or Local Report packages.
