Quikrete Industry Dashboard
The highlight of this week’s dashboard is in residential construction.
Housing starts are picking up the pace, and it shows in the latest version of the Quikrete Industry Dashboard shows. The seasonally adjusted annual rate for total starts and single-family starts came in at 1,235,000, and 854,000, respectively, for April.
Also on the dashboard, retail sales for March – the latest month for which data is available for both 444 and 44413 – shows big gains over February, but slight declines compared to March 2018.
Stock prices took a hit in the past week, sending the majority of companies tracked on the HBSDealer Stock Roundup to negative territory on a month-over-month basis. There are two exceptions: LBM giants BMC and BLDR.
