According to the All-in-One Screener, a Premium feature of GuruFocus, five homebuilder stocks that have outperformed the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index in 2021 yet are not highly overvalued based on the GF Value as of Tuesday are Tri Pointe Homes Inc. (

TPH, Financial), D.R. Horton Inc. (DHI, Financial), NVR Inc. (NVR, Financial), Meritage Homes Corp. (MTH, Financial) and LGI Homes Inc. (LGIH, Financial).

The 20-city S&P/Case-Shiller National Home Price Index increased 18.4% in October, down from September’s 19.1% gain yet continued its rebound from pandemic lows in the prior year. Low mortgage rates, high housing demand and low supply fueled the strong increase in home prices.

As such, GuruFocus’ All-in-one Screener listed several homebuilder stocks that have outperformed the S&P 500 by at least 10% over the past year. Five homebuilder stocks have a price-to-GF Value ratio of less than 1.20, showing the stock is just modestly overvalued based on GuruFocus’ exclusive valuation method that considers historical multiples and internal adjustments for past performance and future growth estimates.
