What are analysts saying about Builders FirstSource stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Builders FirstSource stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Builders FirstSource is a leading supplier and manufacturer of structural and related building products for residential new construction in the United States. Manufacturing facilities include plants that manufacture roof and floor trusses, wall panels, stairs, aluminum and vinyl windows, custom millwork and pre-hung doors. Builders FirstSource also distributes windows, interior and exterior doors, dimensional lumber and lumber sheet goods, millwork and other building products. " (10/9/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "We are reiterating BLDR as our Alpha Generator idea heading into 2Q earnings, with 35% potential upside to our $20 price target. We expect meaningful stock price appreciation over the coming years as demand for new single family homes and for lumber and other building materials should grow and as the company pursues a significant deleveraging strategy. We are adjusting our estimates for 2017 and 2018 to account for solid 1Q17 results, recent lumber prices and our expectation for continued strength through 2Q and into 2H17. Circling back, sales, EBITDA and EPS for 1Q17 were nicely ahead of our and consensus expectations. In particular, sales growth of 10% reconfirmed our confidence in the company’s initiatives to reinvigorate growth. Looking into 2Q, there will be some noise created by the short-term movement in lumber prices, which net-net should not be a concern. More importantly, BLDR continues to make favorable strides towards de-leveraging the balance sheet, which should, over time, be a significant catalyst to increasing shareholder value. In addition, management’s recent pivot toward growth (versus integration), through an initiative to expand its sales force, could provide upside in 2H17 and into 2018." (6/27/2017)
