Quikrete Industry Dashboard
The latest version of the Quikrete Industry Dashboard includes an updated Stock Roundup and a new reading on gas prices from the American Automobile Association.
A bear market at the end of the week push stocks pushed a handful of hardware and building supply stocks into negative territory for the month. BMC and BLDR, which announced a merger plan last month, remain high fliers on the matrix.
Gas prices of $2.20 rose 3 cents from a month ago – but are still well below last year’s average of $2.57.
Coming soon on the Dashboard: Monthly retail sales will be reported on Sept. 16, followed by housing starts on Sept. 17.
