Home Depot (HD) recorded strong second-quarter earnings on the same day the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development reported multifamily housing starts soaring. Per Forbes:

Home Depot reported $23.8 billion in second quarter revenue, a 5.7% increase over the year-ago quarter and a figure that cleared the $23.5 billion Wall Street consensus.

“In the second quarter, our spring seasonal business rebounded, and we saw strong performance in the core of the store and across all of our geographies,” Frank Blake, Home Depot chairman and CEO, said in a statement Tuesday morning. 

And as a result, homebuilder stocks on the HW 30, HousingWire's exclusive list of mortgage related stocks, were up on the news Tuesday.
