I work in a Donnelley plant in the United States and I can tell you first hand that we are now pumping out more work than we have in years. I believe this is a very good indication of the health of the company. Ironically I think the decline of printing has been good for the company. The fact that many small printers have recently gone belly up has been good for the big kid on the block. When all the smoke finally clears, guess who will still be standing high above the competition. I wouldn't think twice about investing here and what a great dividend.
Yeah I just left RRD after working there for 18 years. Our plant in Manchester Ct. is on the downward spiral with alot of people leaving because they see the "writing on the wall" that closure is soon coming! Presses not getting fixed, building is falling apart and not getting fixed....the smart rats are leaving the sinking ship and thank god I am 1 of them!
the idea that printing is going away soon is ridiculous, and propagated by a handful of shorties who are trying to profit by creating fear and hysteria among weak-willed shareholders. anyone who devotes a few minutes looking at RRD's balance sheet and presentations on their website can see this is a solid, well-diversified company, with a great dividend and a wide moat (ie little or no competition).
Please answer a couple of questions: Why is the stock in the toilet? Why is the company 3.9 BILLION in debt? It looks like RRD is ran like the federal government. And we all know what kind of mess they are in. Except they can just print more money.
