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).

09:32 EDTOCOwens Corning outlook to temper share upside, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Michael Rehaut expects Owens Corning's full year EBIT guidance to limit the upside in shares following the better than expected Q2 earnings report. The outlook implies an earnings midpoint that is roughly in-line with the consensus, which suggests a second half of 2015 performance that is modestly below current expectations, JPMorgan tells investors. It keeps a Neutral rating on the stock.
