BMO Capital analyst Ketan Mamtora upgraded Norbord (NYSE: OSB) from Market Perform to Outperform with a price target of $28.00 (from $26.00).

  • LP and Norbord's announcements to indefinitely idle OSB mills remove 5% of industry capacity
  • This should alleviate supply overhang and aid OSB prices
  • A ~75bps drop in mortgage rates should strengthen "cyclical" housing demand as we move into H2
  • Valuation appears very attractive at current levels (5.0x our 2020 EBITDA), balance sheet is healthy (0.9x net leverage), and Norbord has made solid progress in improving European performance.
