Shares of a number of homebuilders are sinking after Credit Suisse downgraded three companies in the sector, saying that the spring selling season looks set to be "underwheliming." WHAT'S NEW: Credit Suisse analyst Daniel Oppenheim wrote that the firm's survey of real estate agents last month indicates that demand for housing was weak. Buyer traffic fell compared with January and February 2013, the analyst stated. Homebuilders' gross margins are likely to drop in the first half of 2014 and their stocks generally reflect optimistic outlooks, added the analyst. As a result, he downgraded three names in the sector - Toll Brothers (TOL), PulteGroup (PHM), and William Lyon Homes (WLH) - to Neutral from Outperform. Oppenheim expects the companies' orders and gross margins to rise this year, but he predicts that the sector's margins will inch down slightly next year. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Also possibly weighing on the sector is news that two key senators have reached a deal to wind down and eliminate Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC), which buy mortgages from lenders. The top Democrat and the top Republican on the Senate Banking Committee yesterday said they had agreed on a plan to dismantle the two companies and replace them with a system that would force the private sector to shoulder more of the risk of mortgages. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Toll Brothers fell 3% to $36.85, PulteGroup dropped 2.7% to $19.40, and William Lyon retreated 3% to $29. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded homebuilders include Beazer Homes (BZH), D.R. Horton (DHI), Hovnanian (HOV), KB Home (KBH), Lennar (LEN), M.D.C. Holdings (MDC), and Ryland Group (RYL).
