What are Wall Street analysts saying about International Paper stock?

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 along with a higher flexibility to manage a wide portfolio of products to meet customer needs through superior R&D capabilities and priceless patent portfolio. However, the stock has outperformed the industry in the past three months on an average. Huge burden of pension obligations and adverse foreign currency translation remain headwinds." (6/5/2018)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are updating our estimates for IP to reflect the completion of the transfer of its N.A. 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)
