10:10 EDTPKG, RKT, KS, IPContainerboard makers surge as analyst sees price increase sticking
Containerboard makers are rallying after Deutsche Bank analyst Mark Wilde earlier today upgraded the stocks covered in the sector to Buy from Hold. Wilde expects the publication Pulp and Paper Week to report that September prices have increased about $40 per ton. After speaking with several privately owned companies in the sector, the analyst sees a much greater chance that a recent containerboard price increase will be maintained. Wilde, who also noted that the sector's inventories dropped to their lowest August level in decades last month, now sees a 75%-80% that the price increase will be maintained, up from his previous 50% estimate. The analyst's upbeat outlook for the sector marks a reversal from a forecast he made earlier this month, when he downgraded all four of the sector's stocks and warned that the containerboard price hike investors were expecting to occur in the Fall may not materialize. The analyst admitted today that he's "eating a bit of crow." In today's note, Wilde upgraded the following containerboard makers to Buy from Hold: International Paper (IP), Rock-Tenn (RKT), Packaging Corp. of America (PKG) and KapStone Paper (KS). In early morning trading, KapStone surged 8.32% to $20.95, International Paper gained 3.20% to $35.81, Rock-Tenn advanced 2.39% to $68.97 and Packaging Corp. of America rose 2.85% to $33.98.
