In a report published Wednesday, Deutsche Bank reiterated its Hold rating on Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (NYSE: LPX), and raised its price target from $18.00 to $20.00.

Deutsche Bank noted, “We've been awed by the surge in OSB prices thru Q4 & much of Q1. The bullish thesis around a housing recovery & high OSB prices looks increasingly probable. The risks remain clear. Mill restarts (or ramp-up curve) could still disrupt demand/supply balance, pressuring OSB prices. Considering the current stock price level & extremely high volatility of OSB prices, we prefer to remain on the sidelines. Maintain Hold. Raising PT from $18 to $20/share on higher than expected EBITDA in 2013 & 2014.”

Louisiana-Pacific Corporation closed on Tuesday at $21.45.
