    • USG Corp. (USG) -5.9% AH after issuing downside guidance for Q3, seeing EPS of $0.21 vs. $0.29 analyst consensus and revenues of $925M vs. $936M consensus.
    • USG attributes the results, which are an improvement Y/Y, to better wallboard price and volume and positive operating results at L&W Supply, partially offset by higher SG&A expense as expected and lower profitability from its GTL shipping company due to timing of shipments in H2.
    • Also, USG announces a plasterboard and ceilings joint venture with Australian peer Boral Ltd.; in order to achieve a 50% interest in the JV, USG will pay Boral total cash payments of up to $575M.

    USG (USG -4.5%) slips in tandem with a weak homebuiling sector today, but gets an added prod from Wedbush, who initiated the shares this morning with a Neutral rating and a price target of $28. The firm cites choppiness in the commercial construction market, and says that its valuation already reflects growth and margin expansion over the next two years.

    USG (USG +2%-) gets a boost today after Credit Suisse ups the shares to Neutral on valuation and raises its price target from $22 to $27. The firm says recent checks of the wallboard market indicate that price increases appear to be sticking with no significant impact to sales volume, although distributors who deal more with commercial/non-residential markets have yet to see meaningful volume improvement. It's anticipating stronger trends as the year progresses, with wallboard pricing of +20% in FY13 and +8% in FY14.

    The steep afternoon drop in shares of USG (USG -5.5%) and Eagle Materials (EGLE -2.2%) is tied to a research note by analysts at Cleveland Research, which says its checks showed slippage in wallboard pricing, especially in the eastern U.S. Shares had plunged 9.2% and 4.5%, respectively, at their lowest points about an hour ago.

    USG conference call (webcast and presentation): A coming labor shortage? Company brass suggests low availability of labor - contractors, drivers, laborers - as maybe being the top headwind to growth in 2013. Many in the business have moved on, and companies - not believing in the recovery - have been slow to hire. A drywall price hike is schedule for Jan. 1. Shares +5.3% after diving nearly 10% at the open following the earnings miss.
