Bearish sentiment

Short interest | Positive

Short interest is extremely low for IP with fewer than 1% of shares on loan. This could indicate that investors who seek to profit from falling equity prices are not currently targeting IP.

Money flow

ETF/Index ownership | Neutral

ETF activity is neutral. The net inflows of $10.46 billion over the last one-month into ETFs that hold IP are not among the highest of the last year and have been slowing.

Economic sentiment

PMI by IHS Markit | Neutral

According to the latest IHS Markit Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) data, output in the Basic Materials sector is rising. The rate of growth is very strong relative to the trend shown over the past year, and is accelerating. However, the rate of expansion may not be sustainable over the coming months.

Credit worthiness

Credit default swap | Positive

The current level displays a positive indicator. IP credit default swap spreads are near the lowest level of the last three years and indicate the market's continued positive perception of the company's credit worthiness.
