The housing boom that kicked into gear during the pandemic is just the start of a bullish cycle for homebuilders, and some stocks stand out as future winners, Wells Fargo found.

A shortage of dwellings on the market has boosted prices for housing and lumber in the United States, a trend that has continued since demand picked up last year after the early wave of Covid-19.

Housing starts in March were up substantially both month-over-month and year-over-year, according to the Commerce Department, with permits also rising.
