Wedbush initiates coverage on Beacon Roofing Supply (NASDAQ: BECN) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $50.00.

Analyst Al Kaschalk commented, "We believe Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (BECN) is positioned to benefit from existing market growth and new branch openings led by demand from the Residential Roofing market. With enhanced cost saving initiatives and investments in distribution facility efficiencies, results are expected to benefit from ~14-15% incremental operating margin on mid-single-digit organic growth. BECN’s active greenfield development efforts and a robust pipeline of strategic, accretive M&A candidates are expected to contribute to additional growth as well as market share gains going forward. Still, the current positive prospects for positive near-term earnings revisions driven by higher incremental operating margin or outsize growth from greenfield additions are reflected in the stock’s current valuation, in our view."
