The latest version of the Quikrete Industry Dashboard reveals a high-flying ticker symbol on the Stock Roundup grid: Builders FirstSource (BLDR) is up more than 70% for the year and up more than 14% for the month.

Builders FirstSource’s integration with BMC has been a big story in the building material distribution space since the deal was announced last year.

Elsewhere during a relatively quiet week of government and industry macroeconomic statistics, average gas prices across the country as measured by the American Automobile Association held steady at $3.18 for a gallon of regular. 

Coming next to the Dashboard: NAICS 444 and NAICS 44413 sales updates are to be released by the U.S. Census Bureau Sept. 16.
