Reiterate UW rating; we expect the shares to eventually move lower as estimates do the same." (7/25/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "International Paper’s fourth-quarter 2018 adjusted earnings and revenues both improved on a year-over-year basis and also beat the respective Zacks Consensus Estimate. This can be attributed to solid commercial and operational performance across the company’s three businesses. International Paper guides adjusted EBITDA to lie between $4.3 billion and $4.4 billion in fiscal 2019 compared with $4.3 billion of adjusted EBITDA reported in fiscal 2018. Backed by healthy demand across all of its three segments, the company is poised to deliver improved results in 2019. The company has outperformed the industry over the past year. However, first-quarter results will bear the brunt of price and volume pressure in its segments. Further, maintenance outages will also be sequentially higher in the quarter. Elevated input costs also remain a woe." (2/4/2019)
