Boise Cascade downgraded to Neutral at BofA on housing slowdown » 08:0206/2306/23/22
BofA analyst George…
BofA analyst George Staphos downgraded Boise Cascade to Neutral from Buy with a price target of $71, down from $95, driven by the firm's cut to its housing forecasts and the playing out of what he had previously identified as the catalysts in the wood products space. The firm's analyst on homebuilding sees a weakened environment since early June given mortgage rates, affordability and other factors, which is in keeping with the view of the BofA economics team for a slowing housing sector, noted Staphos.

Boise Cascade downgraded to Hold at Benchmark after outperformance » 07:1305/1005/10/22
As previously reported,…
As previously reported, Benchmark analyst Reuben Garner downgraded Boise Cascade to Hold from Buy as the stock approaches his previous $82 price target. Late last week, Boise posted "standout results yet again" and his downgraded "certainly wasn't due to any disappointment in the quarter/outlook" as he is raising his EPS estimates for this year and next, Garner tells investors. However, the stock is the strongest performer in its group this year with a year-to-date advance of nearly 15% and he notes that commodity price pressures and/or broader housing concerns may push shares lower through the summer.

Boise Cascade says commodity wood products pricing above historical levels » 16:1602/2202/22/22
Boise Cascade said:…
Boise Cascade said: "Economic uncertainty due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues. However, mortgage rate levels, continuation of work-from-home practices by many in the economy, and demographics in the U.S. have created a favorable demand environment for new residential construction, which we expect to continue in 2022... As a manufacturer of certain commodity products, we have sales and profitability exposure to declines in commodity product prices and rising input costs. Our distribution business purchases and sells a broad mix of commodity products with periods of increasing prices providing the opportunity for higher sales and increased margins, while declining price environments expose us to declines in sales and profitability. Our 2021 results were favorably impacted by historically high commodity wood products pricing, as well as rising prices for EWP and general line products. Composite lumber and panel prices were very volatile throughout 2021 with rapidly rising prices in second quarter, sharp price declines in third quarter, and prices steadily increasing again during fourth quarter. As we enter 2022, commodity wood products pricing continues to be above historical averages as strong demand and capacity constraints continue to create supply/demand imbalances in the marketplace. We expect future commodity product pricing and commodity input costs to be volatile in response to capacity restoration and industry operating rates, the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on residential construction, net import and export activity, transportation constraints or disruptions, inventory levels in various distribution channels, and seasonal demand patterns. EWP and general line products have historically experienced limited price volatility, and we expect the firm pricing environment to continue in 2022."
