07:55 EDTRKT, IP, PKG, KSJuly containerboard medium prices decline $10, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank notes that according to PPW, July containerboard medium prices fell $10/ton to $570 in the East and $595 in the West. The firm views the cut as discouraging, but says it's not a complete surprise given new capacity and pressure from reported declines in recycled containerboard pricing. Deutsche sees RockTenn (RKT) as being the most exposed to the decline, but sees the impact as minimal. Other containerboard names include International Paper (IP), KapStone (KS) and Packaging Corp. (PKG).
