    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.
