1. Looks like Detroit (eh, Bloomfield Hills) is getting even with us for stealing Comerica Bank. Pulte Homes is buying Centex for $1.3 billion. Said Timothy Eller, Centex’s CEO, “By acting decisively now, we’re creating unrivaled firepower to capitalize on the opportunities in homebuilding that are now becoming visible on the horizon.” So if you plan to buy a new home, expect to get shot at.
