Although consumer demand and pricing remains muted due to a challenging macro backdrop, cost savings and productivity initiatives, along with lower input costs more than offset these difficulties. In our view, MHK’s healthy balance sheet and success managing through economic cycles position the company to benefit from long-term growth in residential remodeling, new home construction and commercial projects. At current levels, MHK is trading at a compelling discount to our estimate of private market value."
