UPDATE: Credit Suisse Reiterates Outperform Rating, Raises PT on International Paper
In a report published Friday, Credit Suisse reiterated its Outperform rating on International Paper (NYSE: IP), and raised its price target from $42.00 to $44.00.
Credit Suisse noted, “While we lower our 2013 EPS estimate largely due to a sizeable increase in non-cash pension expense, we're confident our positive thesis continues to play out. Specifically, 1) strong leverage to structural improvement to the US containerboard market, 2) favorable growth in emerging markets, and 3) a robust FCF profile (11.4% FCF yield in 2013) to support deleveraging and an attractive dividend.”
International Paper closed on Thursday at $36.38.
