    Friday was a poor end to the week on Wall Street, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost almost 200 points and other major benchmarks saw similar losses on a percentage basis. A swift turn in relations between the U.S. and NATO partner Turkey was the most popular scapegoat for the decline in market participants’ eyes. Tweets from the U.S. president threatened to double tariffs on steel and aluminum from their already steep levels, marking the latest in a diplomatic row that has shown no signs of easing. Adding to the pressure on stocks was bad news from several individual companies. News Corp. (NASDAQ:NWS) (NASDAQ:NWSA), Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE:DBD), and Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Best Small Cap Stocks For 2021

Beacon Roofing Supply (NASDAQ:BECN) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “buy” rating in a report released on Monday. The firm presently has a $41.00 price target on the stock. Zacks Investment Research’s target price points to a potential upside of 12.54% from the stock’s previous close.

According to Zacks, “Although shares of Beacon Roofing have underperformed its industry in the past year, earnings estimates for fiscal 2019 have remained stable, while that of fiscal 2020 moved up in the past 30 days, reflecting analyst's optimism over the company's earnings growth potential. Beacon Roofing's focus on significant cost synergies is likely to aid in the near term. Moreover, the company is expected to gain from Allied Building Products acquisition. Also, it remains focused on investing for its employees with additional tools and training that are enhancing productivity. However, rising raw material prices of asphalt, steel and gypsum, inbound flatbed rates as well as outbound costs, including diesel and other delivery expenses, are pressing concerns.”
