11:44 EDTLPX, OC, PPG, MASOwens Corning hits 52-week high after better than expected results
Shares of building materials maker Owens Corning (OC) are soaring after the company reported fourth quarter results that easily surpassed expectations. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Owens Corning reported Q4 adjusted earnings per share of 44c and revenue of $1.28B, compared to expectations of 27c and $1.21B, respectively. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The company announced it will reinstate a quarterly dividend of 16c per share, and expects to deliver $500M in adjusted EBIT in 2014 based on its current outlook for an improving U.S. housing market and moderate global growth. The decision to declare a dividend conveys the confidence of the board of directors in the company's long-term financial outlook and cash flow generation, the company stated. ANALYST REACTION: Following the report, research firm Wedbush reiterated an Outperform rating and 12-month price target of $44 on the shares. Wedbush reaffirmed its positive stance on Owens Corning due to the company's strong earnings performance, the reinstatement of a dividend, and the more than 20% growth in EBIT expected for 2014. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Owens Corning soared $5.23, or 13.2%, to $44.97 on more than twice its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week high of $45.62. Despite today's strong move, the stock has gained only about 3% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Others in the building materials space include Masco Corporation (MAS), PPG Industries (PPG), and Louisiana-Pacific (LPX).
