What are Wall Street analysts saying about Packaging Corp Of America stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Packaging Corp Of America stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Packaging Corp is poised to benefit from strong demand stemming from the booming ecommerce market that will lead to increase in box demand. In the June-end quarter, the company discontinued the production of uncoated free sheet and coated one-side grades at the Wallula mill. This move will help the company to improve margins in the paper segment. It maintains a balanced approach toward capital allocation in order to profitably grow the company as well as maximize returns for the shareholders. However, while seasonally higher containerboard, corrugated product shipments and lower effective tax rate will likely aid earnings, these gains will be offset by lower prices and higher converting costs. Also, higher freight and annual maintenance costs are likely to impair earnings. The company's earnings estimates for 2019 have been going down of late." (10/14/2019)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are leaving our recently-reduced 2019 and 2020 estimates unchanged post-earnings, and remain Sector Weight given our concerns about global containerboard market conditions (prices are falling in all major markets). As just stated, we are maintaining our 2019 adj. EPS estimate of $8.19 (consensus is $8.27) and 2020 estimate of $8.25 (consensus is $8.03) following the slight 1Q beat and 2Q guide-below. In terms of PKG’s box demand trends, its 1Q shipments were up 0.7% (the industry was down 0.5%, by comparison) and its shipments in the 15 days of April were up a fairly similar 0.5%. The Company made the point that it’s not just U.S. containerboard exports that are affected by economic weakness in other markets; U.S. box shipments are affected as well, as many of its customers are global companies."
