There is no secret that the home-builder stocks have been one of the leading industry groups of 2012. Many of the leading home-builder stocks such as Toll Brothers Inc (NYSE:TOL), Lennar Corp (NYSE:LEN), and D.R. Horton Inc (NYSE:DHI) have surged higher since the October 4, 2011 stock market pivot low. It is safe to say that this sector has been leading the markets higher. Many investors believe as long as the home-builder stocks continue to climb there can't be anything bad happening in the stock market indexes. On the flip side, if this important sector begins to rollover or move into a correction it will likely signal that some problems in the major stock indexes could be on the horizon.
