Shares of companies in the Homebuilders space declined after KB Home (KBH) said on its earnings conference call that it will not meet its housing gross profit margin goal in 2015.

It expects gross margins in Q1 to be down "significantly" from the year-ago period. Publicly traded companies in the space include Beazer Homes (BZH), D.R. Horton (DHI), Hovnanian (HOV), Lennar (LEN), M.D.C. Holdings (MDC), PulteGroup (PHM), Ryland Group (RYL) and Toll Brothers (TOL). The stocks moved lower following KB's comments.
