BMO says Packaging has 'dry powder,' unlikely to buy KapStone
After spending time with management, BMO Capital analyst Mark Wilde earlier today raised his price target on Packaging Corp. of America (PKG) to $118 from $104. The company, with "considerable dry powder financially," is unlikely to buy a business like KapStone (KS) in the near-term, Wilde told investors in a research note. He notes that KapStone is often highlighted as a prospective acquisition candidate. Packaging is also unlikely to pursue a near-term conversion of one of its two flagship white paper mills to containerboard, the analyst adds. Wilde points out that management suggested a more likely option was the acquisition/conversion of a mill from another producer of printing and writing paper. The analyst used Domtar's (UFS) uncoated mill at Hawesville, Kentucky as a "good hypothetical example." He estimates Packaging could convert the mill for $125M-$225M. Packaging shares in afternoon trading are up 2% to $113.17, while KapStone is up 3% to $21.05 and Domtar is up 5% to $39.07. Wilde has Outperform ratings on Packaging Corp. of America and KapStone and a Market Perform rating on Domtar.

Underweight
Domtar initiated with an Underweight at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Adam Josephson initiated Domtar with an Underweight and a $33 price target given declining organic EBITDA over the past five years and recent substantial investment in Personal Care have failed to meet management's expectations. Further, the analyst believes pulp prices have peaked and expects prices to start to decline in second half 2017.

Vertical says Domtar-fueled containerboard selloff a buying opportunity
Vertical Research analyst Chip Dillon attributes the selloff in containerboard stocks to comments from Domtar's (UFS) CEO that he is considering converting some of the company's existing uncoated free sheet capacity to kraft linerboard. Dillon views this as likely a negotiating tactic by Domtar, which does not plan to "roll over" and may be setting up to discuss a sale of assets, a joint venture or possibly even a sale of the company. Dillon recommends buying Domtar and International Paper (IP) on this dip, and also likes WestRock (WRK), KapStone (KS) and Packaging Corp. (PKG), he tells investors in an intraday research note.
