    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.
