    Goldman downgrades International Paper, removes WestRock from Americas Conviction List

    Goldman Sachs downgraded International Paper Co. stock to neutral from buy on Wednesday, and removed WestRock Co. from its Americas Conviction List. It kept a neutral rating on Packaging Corp. of America , while lowering stock price targets for all three as it expects U.S. containerboard supply growth to outpace demand growth in the period from 2020 to 2022. Analyst Brian Maguire said he had upgraded International Paper and added WestRock to the conviction last year because he expected U.S. box shipment growth could sustain higher rates of 2%+ than it has in the past because of the explosive growth on e-commerce. "While we consider this thesis still valid (box demand rose 2.4% in 2017 and 1.8%YTD), we underestimated the speed and severity of the supply response in the industry to this acceleration in demand," Maguire wrote in a note. With 12 new capacity announcements since the ugprade, he is now forecasting 11% growth in North American capacity from 2019 to 2022, up from a prior forecast of 2% a year demand growth. "We acknowledge that valuation on containerboard stocks likely already reflects these announcements following significant YTD underperformance, but we are incrementally concerned by the pace of recent new supply announcements as well as the fact that Chinese entrants are now entering the US market for the first time," said the note. "Furthermore, barring a sharper re-acceleration in demand growth, we struggle to identify positive catalysts for our broad containerboard coverage until the overhang of new capacity abates." The buy rating on WestRock reflects the expectation that its pending purchase of KapStone Paper & Packaging Corp. will act as a positive catalyst. International Paper shares were up 1.7% premarket but are down 23% in 2018. WestRock was not yet active, but has fallen 28% in 2018. Packaging Corp. was up 2% but has fallen 23% in 2018, while KapStone Paper has gained 43%. The S&P 500 has gained 8% in 2018.
