  • 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)
