What are analysts saying about GMS stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about GMS stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "GMS Inc. is a distributor of wallboard and suspended ceilings systems. The company's product consists of wallboard, suspended ceilings systems or ceilings and complementary interior construction products in commercial and residential buildings. GMS Inc. is based in Tucker, United States. " (7/3/2017)
- 2. Seaport Global Securities analysts commented, "As a leader in the consolidating interior building product distribution space, we believe GMS has plenty of room to run to grow the top line both organically and via M&A over the coming years. However, we don't believe we have reached a point of acceleration for the commercial markets or with wallboard pricing. Thus, after the stock's strong move higher, we view the current valuation as fair; and with limited self-help margin opportunities in the near term, we are awaiting a better entry point. Thus, we are initiating on shares of GMS with a Neutral rating." (3/16/2017)

Consensus Ratings for GMS (NYSE:GMS) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
