Equal Weight
USG downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Matthew Bouley downgraded USG to Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $44 from $41 on news that the company has agreed to a takeover with Knauf. The lengthy and public deal process underscores the low likelihood of a subsequent competing bid, Bouley tells investors in a research note. The analyst does not see a "meaningful U.S. anti-trust regulatory hurdle that could derail the deal."

USG upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Susan Maklari upgraded USG to Neutral from Underperform and raised her price target to $38 from $34 as the takeover offer from Knauf continues to play out. In a research note to investors, Maklari said that given the proxy fight being waged ahead of USG's shareholders meeting on May 9, she expects the situation to linger and expects the stock to be range bound until there's a resolution "one way or the other," making fundamentals less relevant.
