Shares of USG (NYSE: USG) and Eagle Materials (NYSE: EXP) are down 6.5 percent and 3 percent, respectively, Monday afternoon following some earlier comments from an analyst at Cleveland Research.

The analyst warned of a possible slowdown in wallboard price increases during 2013. These increases could have been reduced by half with the latest round of weakness in eastern US, according to the firm. This input could be more favorable for Eagle than USG.
