There is a Bearish Engulfing pattern August 6 and Gap open up Jul 15/Aug 12 2009 16.12/16.33 & 20.87/22.15, there is no near term resistance, support starts at 22.15, and the 50 day (EMA) exponential moving average is 18.71. This is Toll Brothers Inc. (TOL): This Company is a top US builder of luxury homes, builds for move-up, empty-nester, active-adult, and second-home buyer markets in more than 300 suburban communities in some two dozen states. Its single-family detached homes and apartments range from US$229,000 to about $2.16 million. Toll Brothers develops active-adult communities (some with golf courses) and operates country club communities. Through subsidiaries, it offers insurance, landscaping, and title and mortgage services. Toll delivered nearly 8,600 homes in 2006 but that figure dropped precipitously to about 6,700 in 2007 and just over 4,800 in 2008. Competitive Landscape Demand for new housing depends on population growth and is linked to low interest rates. Large builders have some advantages in purchasing and marketing, but building methods are essentially the same for large or small builders. While larger builders have efficiencies because they can repeatedly build the same home models, they generally develop projects on large pieces of land. Small builders, therefore, build most homes in dense urban markets where little land is available. Residential Real Estate Construction Industry Forecast The value of US new residential home construction and renovations is forecast to grow at an annual compounded rate of 7% between 2008 and 2013.

Small gambling facilities can thrive by catering to a local clientĂ¨le. The industry is fairly labor-intensive: annual revenue per employee is US$90,000. Gambling Operations Industry Forecast
