Highlights
Home price recovery stalled through the first two months of the fourth quarter according to Case-Shiller data that shows a headline 0.2 percent decline in November for the composite-10 index following no change in October (158.49 Nov. vs. 158.83 Oct.). The report had shown a series of gains beginning in mid-year, gains that firmed hopes for wider recovery in the housing sector. The composite-20 index also fell 0.2 percent following a 0.1 percent decline in October (146.28 vs. 146.60).

Note though that the headline for this report, interestingly, is unadjusted. When adjusted the data look less downbeat, showing slowing and marginal rates of increase in what is still not the best news for the housing sector.

Today's report could have upset the housing outlook were it not for yesterday's existing home sales report which showed a big jump in December prices, one tied to a falling proportion of first-time buyers (related to the first expiration of first-time buyer credits). New home sales for December will be posted tomorrow and will offer new clues on pricing.

Definition
The S&P/Case-Shiller home price index tracks monthly changes in the value of residential real estate in 20 metropolitan regions across the U.S. The composite indexes and the regional indexes are seen by the markets as measuring changes in existing home prices and are based on single-family home re-sales. The key composite series tracked are for the expanded 20-city composite indexes. The original series (still available) covered 10 cities. A national index is published quarterly. The indexes are based on single-family dwellings with two or more sales transactions. Condominiums and co-ops are excluded as is new construction. The data are compiled for S&P by Fiserv, Inc. The S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices are published monthly on the last Tuesday of each month at 9:00 AM ET. The latest data are reported with a two-month lag. For example data released in January 2008 were for November 2007.  Why Investors Care
