Martin Marietta Materials, Inc. to Broadcast First Quarter 2017 Conference Call Live on the Internet May 2, 2017 at 11:00 A.M. Eastern Time
FRP Bridge Market by Fiber Type, Resin, Manufacturing Process, Application, Bridge Type & Region - Global Forecast to 2021 - Research and Markets
Narrow-moat Martin Marietta stands to benefit from improving U.S. construction activity.
Total non-residential-construction spending is likely to disappoint over the next decade, but growth in construction-heavy industries like manufacturing and highways bodes well for some companies.
High shipping costs prevent low-priced imports from entering these companies' markets.
We don't see the recent share price declines for metals and mining producers as a buying opportunity on average.
Martin Marietta continues to raise prices despite the weak residential construction market.
Lower commodity prices and a break-up of the European potash cartel have weighed on basic materials stocks year-to-date.
Improved demand should underpin stronger potash and PRB coal markets in 2014.
