Weyerhaeuser completes $2.2B cash sale of Cellulose Fibers mills to International Paper

Weyerhaeuser Company (WY) announced the completion of the sale of its Cellulose Fibers pulp mills to International Paper (IP) for $2.2B in cash. Weyerhaeuser expects to use a substantial portion of the $1.6 billion after-tax proceeds for repayment of debt. The sale, which was announced in May 2016, includes five pulp mills located in Columbus, Miss.; Flint River, Ga.; New Bern, N.C.; Port Wentworth, Ga. and Grand Prairie, Alberta, with a combined total annual operating capacity of about 1.9 million metric tons. The sale also includes two modified fiber mills in Columbus, Miss. and Gdansk, Poland. This transaction completes the divestiture of Weyerhaeuser's Cellulose Fibers business, which resulted from the company's strategic review initiated in November 2015. Earlier this year, the company completed the sale of its liquid packaging board business to Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd. and the sale of its publishing papers business to One Rock Capital Partners, LLC.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. JPMorgan (JPM) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Keith Horowitz citing valuation and his belief that 2017 and 2018 consensus earnings estimates are about 2% too high. 2. Dominion (D) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analysts led by Stephen Byrd said shares are fairly valued on a more balanced risk/reward outlook. 3. Weyerhaeuser (WY) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at DA Davidson with analyst Steven Chercover citing valuation. 4. Sprouts Farmers Markets (SFM) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Northcoast with analyst Chuck Cerankosky saying management expects sales growth over the remainder of this year to be challenged by deflation in key protein and other fresh categories that will also put pressure on margins during a year of record store expansion. 5. Bristol-Myers (BMY) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Vamil Divan citing the failure of the company's frontline lung monotherapy study.

Buy
Packaging Corp. upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Debbie Jones upgraded Packaging Corp. of America (PKG) to Buy citing an "improved earnings trajectory" following the TimBar acquisition. The analyst raised her price target for the shares to $90 from $77. Jones this morning also upgraded KapStone (KS) to Buy. She raised her estimates across the Paper & Packaging space to reflect the likelihood of success for the October containerboard price hike initiative. Jones also raised her price target for Buy-rated WestRock to $53 from $50 and Hold-rating International Paper (IP) to $50 from $42.

Underperform
International Paper downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Macquarie
Macquarie analyst Danny Moran downgraded International Paper to Underperform and maintained his $38 price target on shares. He believes shares are overvalued given increased dependence to balance the market in containerboard and fluff pulp, exposure to more cyclical end-markets, price risk skewing to the downside in all other paper grades, and lack of capital allocation opportunities.

Deutsche sees Containerboard stocks outperforming today
Pulp & Paper Week over the weekend reflected $40 of the $50 per ton October 1 containerboard price hike, Deutsche Bank analyst Debbie Jones tells investors in a research note. PPW noted that producers are making "solid progress" in implementing the increase, the analyst adds. Given investor concern that a smaller increase would be reflected, Jones expects Containerboard stocks to outperform the marke today. She believes the price raise is a near-term positive for WestRock (WRK), KapStone (KS), Packaging Corp. (PKG) and International Paper (IP).
