UPDATE: Mohawk Downgraded by Raymond James Following Earnings; Shares Rally Back
Sam Darkatsh, analyst at Raymond James, believes the “risk/reward is no longer compelling” due to market share trends in carpet remaining “uninspiring.” “Near-term direction in housing/remodeling dynamics is more nebulous at best,” according to Darkatsh.
The analyst called, “implied FY14 guidance was in line with prior expectation (and already assumes a snap back from weather impacts in 1Q, whereas going into 4Q13 guidance looked conservative).”
Shares of Mohawk opened 5.2 percent lower to $138.27 on Friday, but have rallied all the way back to near Thursday's closing price of $145.95.
