PulteGroup and Lennar Home Builders Top Stocks in 2012

If you had told me in January that owning PulteGroup and Lennar was a smart move I probably would have scoffed at you. But now at the end of the year, these two companies are considered a couple of the best investments of the year, and still worthy to hold on to.

Boosted by the beginnings of a housing recovery, PulteGroup and Lennar ranked among the 10 largest gainers in the S&P 500. Pultegroup nearly quadrupled—shares rose 182% to $17.61. Lennar, meanwhile, increased 94% to $37.80.

For sure, some of these gains came because of better industry-wide conditions. Confidence among home-builders is quite elevated. Housing starts and prices considerably improved, and the inventory of foreclosed property continues to slowly dwindle. Both Pulte and Lennar managed this period well. via Forbes
