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, "Driven by healthy demand across its global operations, the company anticipates delivering a second consecutive year of strong earnings growth in 2018. International Paper is undergoing restructuring initiatives to transform itself into a core packaging company. It also intends to invest significantly to improve its North American containerboard mill system, enhancing product quality and reducing costs. The company expects the acquisition of Weyerhaeuser’s pulp business to generate annual synergies of approximately $175 million by the end of 2018. However, elevated input costs and higher distribution costs will likely affect the company’s margins in the near term. The stock has underperformed the industry over the past year. " (9/21/2018)
  • 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)
