07:48 EDTGPKHighway bill could boost IP, RockTenn shares, says Jefferies
Jefferies notes the Senate and House agreed last week on the highway bill, which allows corporations to push out pension contributions. The firm thinks the bill will accelerate free cash flow generation for International Paper (IP), RockTenn (RKT) and Sonoco (SON).

The firm does not expect much pension relief from the bill for Owens-Illinois (OI), Crown Holdings (CCK) and Graphic Packaging (GPK).
