TopBuild price target lowered at Deutsche Bank

On October 20, 2022, Deutsche Bank analyst Joe Ahlersmeyer cut the company’s price target on TopBuild to $206 from $236 and left the stock with a Hold rating. The analyst believes the Q3 earnings season for building products will be characterized by continued strong earnings results and confirmed near-term outlooks, but is not surprised by another step below next year’s estimates. He doesn’t expect this earnings season to catalyze the deep cuts that would stabilize current prices and lower multiples. He said if earnings season doesn’t change much, stocks will probably trade cheaper until we can eliminate most negative volatility scenarios, which is unlikely to happen soon.
