Williams Financial Group downgraded PulteGroup (NYSE: PHM) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $23.00 following Q4 results.

The firm comments, "Overall, the quarter was mostly in-line with our expectations. We are however somewhat disappointed with the increase in reserves related to put-backs as we had largely believed most of these issues had already been accounted. Although declining community count and legacy land positions likely constrained some growth opportunities, we are slightly disappointed by the 27% order growth given the numbers we have seen thus far through earnings season and what appears to be a slowing Southwest division."
