What are analysts saying about Beacon Roofing Supply stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Beacon Roofing Supply stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Beacon Roofing lowered revenue growth range for 2017 to 5-6% reflecting lower-than-expected sales rate in the third quarter. The company guides adjusted earnings per share between $2.15 and $2.25 for 2017. The commercial roofing market has been experiencing competitive pricing pressures recently. Year-over-year comparisons in the Southwest will remain difficult during the coming quarters and Eastern Canada will be impacted by competitive pressure; limited big project work and unfavorable weather. Beacon Roofing has underperformed the industry, year-to-date. However, Beacon Roofing's pending acquisition of Allied Building Products for $2.625 billion will catapult it to one of the largest public wholesale building materials distributors in North America. Beacon Roofing is also expected to benefit from the rebuilding activity triggered by the two back-to-back hurricanes Harvey and Irma." (10/3/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "BECN reported an in-line quarter, with strong results in Resi, but visibility in Commercial remains limited. That said, mgmt's outlook remains unchanged and reiterated its guidance for FY. With that said, shares are trading at a fair value and facing more difficult comps this year, making it more challenging for the stock to outperform in a meaningful way and we remain comfortable with our Hold rating."
