What are Wall Street 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. " (2/6/2018)
- 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."

USG (NYSE:USG) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks 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). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst 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.
