07:18 EDTIP, PKGInternational Paper downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi
Citi analyst Anthony Pettinari downgraded International Paper (IP) to Neutral after Paper Week reduced January kraftliner prices by 2.4% and corrugated medium prices by 3.7%. The price cuts were the first since 2008-2009, Pettinari tells investors in a research note. The analyst lowered his estimates for International Paper, Packaging Corp. (PKG) and WestRock (WRK) and downgraded both IP and Packaging Corp. to Neutral. He expects the stocks to trade lower today, potentially in the 4%-6% range. Pettinari cut his price target for International Paper shares to $38 from $45. The analyst said he'd not be surprised to see Graphic Packaging (GPK) trade down on the price cuts, even though the company does not produce containerboard. He recommends buying the stock on any pullback.
06:29 EDTPKGPackaging Corp. downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Macquarie
Macquarie analyst Danny Moran downgraded Packaging Corp to Underperform and lowered his price target to $43 from $67 on shares. Moran expects Packaging's premium multiple to erode given his belief that containerboard pricing has peaked and he sees further downside risk from slowing relative volume growth.
