Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about International Paper stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "International Paper is undergoing restructuring initiatives to transform itself into a core packaging company. The company intends to invest significantly to improve its North American containerboard mill system, enhancing product quality and reducing costs. Moreover, the company envisions a large opportunity within its industrial packaging businesses in North America, which continue to generate the best margins in the industry. In addition, the company expects the acquisition of Weyerhaeuser’s pulp business to generate annual synergies of approximately $175 million by the end of 2018. The stock has outperformed the industry in the past three months. However, huge pension obligations, rising raw material costs and unfavorable pricing and product mix in some regions remain headwinds." (7/10/2018)

Consumer Packaging business to Graphic Packaging as well as a lower (book) tax rate. We are maintaining our 2017 adj. EBITDA estimate and reducing our 2018 estimate to reflect one fewer quarter of the N.A. Consumer Packaging business. Our 2018 adj. EPS estimate is increasing on account of a lower tax rate and to a lesser extent lower interest expense." (1/2/2018)
