USG has been on a tear as the housing market improves. While the company's financials still aren't great, the company's performance should continue to improve because USG controls a large percentage of the market for the basic materials used in building. It doesn't hurt that Berkshire Hathaway controls 30.50% of the company's stock...

Meritage is positioned to gain as the housing market stablizes and the housing market returns to a more normal senario.

This company manufactures (yawn) wallboard. Yes, the stuff your walls are made of. The stuff that is quite literally one of the building blocks of America. And since America hasn't been doing much building lately, USG has been crushed. Bad housing market and bad economy – both bad for USG. Now, as I see it, America is getting its stride back. And with it, its will to build and grow. Which means USG gets it stride back...and goes to 45...then 100.

lying th the weeds, waiting. Well managed industry leader, good liquidity. Will be printing money once housing returns to historic levels. Demographics are on its side.

USG hasn't had a single profitable quarter in 3 years. The housing market isn't coming back quickly, so I don't see USG doing better any time soon.

Depending on when Berkshire converts it's senior debt notes and USG STOPS paying them 10 percent a year this stock should soar. Also the amount of wallboard it is selling is off between a third to a quarter from it's peak. Any uptick in home sales over the next three years will make it worth your while to own. Also has over 700 million in cash to survive another downfall or continued pressure in the housing market.

will likely fall below 10 in the next year, but long term will rise to 25 or could even hit 50. People like to live inside either in homes or apartment and tend to like walls on their studs so they don't see their neighbors. There is risk with this company if housing takes too many years to restart.

USG is down 46% from its 52W high, but still up approx. 150% from its March 2009 low.
I love the way USG's chart looks like.
My kind of value play.

April's "New Housing Starts" report wah s the last good housing report for 2010.

If you don't take profits today, you'll not regret it in July. Today's report looked good, but it was based on outdated April data. Comically BB&T and Mark Zandi just came out with a buy recommendation by an analyst who doesn't grasp the deep-seated problems in the drywall or housing industry. The Banking mortgage industry is vitually dead in the water. Then you have Freddie and Fannie insolvent with a lot of bad mortgages and now the FHA is requiring a bailout, because their 3% mortgages are collapsing. Who is going to create mortgages for new home sales in the future.

The biggest problem is there are 5 major drywall manufacturers all trying to sell to a dwindling customer base. In May volume has dropped significantly and the price increases arey eroding.
----------------------------------------------
This below article is really funny, remember Zandi's asinine claim that the housing crash is over on 6/16/10 when the "New Housing Starts" report for May 2010 is released and they realize that housing again tanking.

Now is the best time to buy a home in a quarter-century, thanks to low mortgage rates, low prices and special incentives. So says Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Economy.com. He says the housing downdraft is over after several terrible years.
Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Economy.com.is wrong too.
