What are analysts saying about USG stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about USG stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "USG Corp., through its subsidiaries, is a leading manufacturer and distributor of building materials producing a wide range of products for use in new residential, new nonresidential and repair and remodel construction, as well as products used in certain industrial processes. USG's operations are organized into three operating segments: North American Gypsum, Worldwide Ceilings and Building Products Distribution. " (5/2/2017)
- 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We were skeptical the wallboard industry would see much traction with its price increase heading into the year, but our checks suggest prices are up in the retail and specialty distributor channel. We are encouraged by the more favorable pricing environment, but with shares up 19% YTD we believe USG is fairly valued, and believe there's risk the market could view the amount of pricing it realizes and higher than expected inflation as a letdown." (3/17/2017)
- 3. Wedbush analysts commented, "We expect USG Corporation (USG) shares to continue to trade at a slight discount to its peer group EBITDA multiple until it can successfully navigate the pricing challenges within the wallboard industry. Once stability has returned and operating efficiency programs such as Advanced Manufacturing (AM) can gain traction, shares could appreciate above the current ~8.5x EV/EBITDA multiple, potentially in-line with its comparison group."
