Jefferies said the IRS ruling which appears to exclude the paper-making process from MLP status is a letdown, but noted that the firm had viewed the MLP opportunity as "more of a call" option for the companies in the space. The firm, which said that underlying fundamentals in containerboard have improved materially, views today's pullback as a buying opportunity and does not think there is meaningful further downside for the stocks from current levels. Paperboard stocks that have dropped today after the IRS ruling include KapStone Paper (KS), International Paper (IP), Packaging Corp. (PKG), RockTenn (RKT) and MeadWestvaco (MWV).
