Homebuilder Hovnanian Enterprises Inc. (HOV) said Wednesday it received notice from the New York Stock Exchange that its shares weren't in compliance with the exchange's continued listing standards.

Hovnanian said it was informed by the exchange its average global market capitalization was under $50 million over a consecutive 30 trading-day period and its most recently reported stockholders' equity was less than $50 million.

The company said it intends to submit a plan to regain compliance. If the plan is accepted, Hovnanian will have 18 months to regain compliance.

The notice has no immediate impact on Hovnanian's stock listing or its ability to trade on the NYSE.

NAHB Housing Market Index: "Builder Confidence Posts Solid Gain in May" by Jill Mislinski, 5/15/19

https://www.advisorperspectives.com/dshort/updates/2019/05/15/nahb-housing-market-index-builder-confidence-posts-solid-gain-in-may

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Housing Market Index (HMI) is a gauge of builder opinion on the relative level of current and future single-family home sales. It is a diffusion index, which means that a reading above 50 indicates a favorable outlook on home sales; below 50 indicates a negative outlook.

The latest reading of 66 is up 3 from last month.

Here is the opening of this morning's monthly update:

Builder confidence in the market for newly built single-family homes rose three points to 66 in May, according to the latest NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI) released today. Builder sentiment is at its highest level since October 2018.

“Builders are busy catching up after a wet winter, and many characterize sales as solid, driven by improved demand and ongoing low overall supply,” said NAHB Chairman Greg Ugalde. “However, affordability challenges persist and remain a big impediment to stronger sales.”

“Mortgage rates are hovering just above 4% following a challenging fourth quarter of 2018 when they peaked near 5%. This lower interest rate environment, along with ongoing job growth and rising wages, is contributing to a gradual improvement in the marketplace,” said NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz. “At the same time, builders continue to deal with ongoing labor and lot shortages and rising material costs that are holding back supply and harming affordability.”

HOV has literately been crushed since the RS.

Housing sentiment is on the rebound in a big way and the demand for entry level housing is set to skyrocket.

https://tradingeconomics.com/united-states/nahb-housing-market-index

Interest rates are expected to drift down a little more going into the prime home buying season.

I am loading up at these low prices. Today was a great day to add more and cost average even lower. The volatility is high and opportunity great?!! Next earnings on 6/19/19.

Weekly mortgage applications surge nearly 9% on lower rates

Mortgage application volume jumped 8.9 percent last week, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association.
The average rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages decreased to 4.45 percent from 4.55 percent for conforming loans with a 20 percent down payment.
Refinance applications jumped 12 percent for the week and were 8.5 percent higher than a year ago.

Borrowers and buyers awoke to a new normal in housing affordability last week, as mortgage rates dropped to the lowest level in more than a year and are now expected to stay low for a while.

Mortgage applications jumped 8.9 percent last week from the previous week and 5.7 percent from a year earlier, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association's seasonally adjusted report.

Both refinance and purchase applications surged, but the more rate-sensitive refis were the real leader. Those applications jumped 12 percent for the week and were 8.5 percent higher than a year ago. For much of last year, the refinance market was minimal, down dramatically from 2017, as rates rose.

Last week, the average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with conforming loan balances ($484,350 or less) decreased to 4.45 percent from 4.55 percent, with points decreasing to 0.39 from 0.42 (including the origination fee) for loans with a 20 percent down payment.

That was a reaction to the Federal Reserve announcement that it does not expect to raise rates anymore this year. Some are now suggesting the central bank could even lower rates. Bond yields fell even further on concerns of slowing economic growth overseas. Mortgage rates loosely follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury note.

"Rates dropped across all loan types, and the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is now more than 70 basis points below last November's peak," said Joel Kan, an MBA economist. "The average loan size increased once again to new highs for both purchase and refinance loans, as borrowers with — or seeking — larger loans tend to be more reactive to the drop in rates."

Homebuyers also reacted positively, with purchase applications surging 6 percent for the week, although just 4 percent higher annually. Consumers shopping for homes are still facing higher prices, but the gains are shrinking and have been for the past 10 months. Nationally, prices were up 4.3 percent annually, according to the latest S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller home price index.

Some see the decline in prices as a potential boost to the spring housing market, while others see just the opposite.

"The housing market is cooling and appears to be in the early stages of a mild cyclical downturn, as evidenced by declining home sales (despite the last reported month's resurgence)," wrote Issi Romem, chief economist at Trulia. "Changes in home prices tend to lag home sales by a year or two, so the current slowing of housing price appreciation aligns well with already-decreasing home sales."

There is also concern that today's lower mortgage rates could reignite some of the heat under home prices, as buyers are now more financially competitive than they were last fall. There is more supply of homes for sale now, but not a lot, especially at the entry level. Single family housing starts in February were more than 10 percent lower annually, although builders are reporting more buyer demand.

Mortgage rates continued to slide this week, and some are now predicting rates could soon be in the high 3 percent range.

(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: HOV), a leading national homebuilder, reported results for its fiscal first quarter ended January 31, 2019.

“Our first quarter results were in line with our expectations. During the quarter, when compared to the prior year, we increased our consolidated land position, grew our earnings from unconsolidated joint ventures and improved our pretax results,” stated Ara K. Hovnanian, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. “After our weak November net contracts, we are pleased that contracts per community for December, January and February have rebounded to levels similar to last year’s strong results. In fact, for February, contracts per community, community count and absolute net contracts increased compared with the prior year.”

“We continue to move forward towards our goal of growing our community count and revenues, which ultimately should lead to substantially improved levels of profitability. During the first quarter, we increased our consolidated community count 11% compared to October 31, 2018 and grew our consolidated land position by 11% year over year as well. Our growth in land position this quarter was entirely driven by an increase in our option lot position, while our owned land position declined slightly. In keeping with our strategy of high inventory turns and risk mitigation, we now control 58% of our land via options. We remain disciplined in our approach to underwriting new land opportunities and believe that the strong U.S. economy, along with positive demographic trends, should bode well for the housing market going forward,” concluded Mr. Hovnanian.

RESULTS FOR THE THREE-MONTH PERIOD ENDED JANUARY 31, 2019:

Let's get this darn shareholder vote behind us! It ain't moving anywhere but sideways until that day passes. Of course it's likely to rattle the weak cages when they vote to AUTHORIZE a split but hopefully the smart money swoops in.

After noticing and watching it the past week or two, I bought today @ $.66. If this were June, I wouldn't have bought so close to the listing extension deadline, but it's February, with plenty of time for the stock to rebound without a RS being necessary to stay listed on NYSE.

I strongly disagree with your assumptions. The NYSE notice of being <$1 and initial 6 month listing extension coincided with the announcement of the ASM/proxy vote. It is only logical to add the RS proposal to the proxy vote so the company has that option, if needed, to keep listed. The 6 month extension is good through July. Although the company didn't state that it would only RS if necessary to stay listed, it also didn't say that it was definitely executing, if voter approved. There is plenty of time for the stock to get >$1. The stock dropped below $1 in 2009 and 2011, and though I wasn't watching HOV then, I don't think that it did a reverse split either of those times. The stock rebounded both times very nicely, and I see the same scenario likely this time. In summary, reverse split is not a given, but the company needs the option ready if needed.

The simple fact they are proposing a RS will keep the stock at these levels or lower. It is a self fulfilling prophecy. It also confirms the fact the company is not expecting or planning any PR that would raise the PPS to the $1.00 range. No one in their right mind would make a substantial investment in a company proposing a RS unless they have information unknown to the market.

I have a large position and underwater. I bet large based on the historic, year after year, year end run-up which to my dismay did not happen this year. I will wait until after the RS when you can be assured of further PPS decline to average down.

The FOMC sure didn't come out with guns blazin' for future rate hikes. That's a double positive for builders with debt loads like HOV. Consumers can still borrow money cheap to buy their expensive product and HOV can contain their interest expense of debt.

This thing could definitely creep back up above a buck in time to avoid a R/S.

R/S might not be necessary...there's a good amount of time left for the share price to hit $1.00 and above. It's crazy that it went under $1.00 in the first place!

That is what happens down here in penny land. This turdburglar is officially a penny stock lingering around with all the other pump & dump doozies.

This is way oversold. Looks like worries of next weeks rate increase, margin calls and year end tax selling. I will be averaging down as this will move fast to the upside on any positive news.

Wowsers. This turd is getting stinky. Penny stock stuff. Makes no sense to me. If for some reason the Feds hold rates next week things could get interesting. Dichotomy. Lower rates is better for housing industry.....Feds holding indicates economy slowing....oh what to do

If only the market wasnt down 500 points today! Missed revenue doesn't concern me much when earnings are there. Especially with the environment builders are operating in right now. I still dont see near the spike in rates through 2019 that experts predicted as little as 2 months ago. If we see a bump this month and 2 in 2019 I think the housing market slows up but doesn't contract....which in the long run would probably be best for the economy as a whole. The longer we run hot the more vicious the inevitable business cycles become. IMO of course because after all I'm the proud idiot owner of this stock....and lots of it
