The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer, Jeff Fischer, and Ron Gross. In this segment, the guys take a look at the rate that the housing recovery is truly moving at. So far, this has been an excellent year for companies in this sector. Home Depot (NYS: HD) , in particular, had an excellent quarter, and DR Horton (NYS: DHI) and Hovnanian (NYS: HOV) are both up dramatically for the year. But there's talk that this housing recovery momentum may have gotten a bit ahead of itself, and that these stocks are destined for a pull-back before things continue upward. The recovery itself may be destined for more of a fits-and-starts approach than a smooth incline.

The housing market isn't the only play to make as the economy recovers from a worldwide recession.
