    • Weyerhauser (NYSE:WY) was today's biggest mover in the S&P 500, surging 5.7% in its biggest gain since February 2012, after Goldman Sachs initiated coverage with a Buy rating and adding it to the firm's Conviction List, citing its “leverage to the housing recovery.”
    • Goldman says WY has the best timberland assets in the industry, and views WY as the only way for investors to get exposure to the attractive timberland asset class through a liquid, large-cap publicly traded equity.
    • The firm expect continued timberland price appreciation to drive WY’s stock price higher, as the value of its land ownership comprises ~75% of the company's enterprise value.
    • Elsewhere in the U.S. paper and forest products sector, Goldman also awards a Buy rating to Boise Cascade (NYSE:BCC) because of its strength in wood products; the firm rates International Paper (NYSE:IP), WestRock (NYSE:WRK), Domtar (NYSE:UFS) and Enviva Partners (NYSE:EVA) at Neutral, and Packaging Corp. of America (NYSE:PKG) as a Sell.

    • International Paper (NYSE:IP) popped higher during today's trade on rumors it could be a possible takeover target, with BMO Capital analysts highlighting privately-held Koch Industries as a potential buyer since it has been "actively consolidating the forest products sector for more than a decade."
    • BMO also speculates on an IP pairing with Georgia-Pacific, saying the combination would pose regulatory challenges and likely require divestitures, particularly in the container board and fluff pulp sectors.
    • IP-GP would sport a combined pro forma market share of ~45% in container board and 65%-70% in fluff pulp, including IP’s pending acquisition of Weyerhaeuser’s (NYSE:WY) fluff pulp assets.

    • Weyerhauser (WY -1.5%) is downgraded to Neutral from Buy with a $33 price target at DA Davidson following the company's Q2 earnings and revenue miss.
    • The firm cuts its FY 2016 EPS estimate by $0.09 to $0.53 due to a higher than anticipated full-year share count and the elimination of the residual contribution from the paper segment that offsets a higher contribution from wood.
    • Davidson also sees potential risk for building products in the future, as a prolonged recession or a double dip in the housing market could lower pricing and demand for many of WY's building products, which could adversely affect revenues and operating results.

    • International Paper (NYSE:IP) says it is not seeing a rise in packaging demand in Brazil ahead of the Olympics next month, in contrast to surging demand two years ago when the country hosted the World Cup.
    • Brazil is in the thick of a severe recession and hopes for an economic jolt from the Olympics, which start Aug. 5 in Rio de Janeiro.
    • CEO Mark Sutton says packaging demand in China is rising ~5% YTD vs. 7%-8% growth last year, and demand in the U.S. is growing ~1.5%, at the high-end of a 1%-1.5% growth range in recent years but below 2% growth rates that were more common before the recession.
    • IP earlier reported better than expected Q2 earnings on a 6.8% drop in revenue to $5.32B.
    • IP reiterates that it expects to close the $2.2B acquisition of Weyerhaeuser's (NYSE:WY) pulp business in Q4.

    • "We believe that Weyerhaeuser's (WY +4.2%) primarily domestic focused business will allow fundamentals to stay well-insulated from the outside noise," says D.A. Davidson, upgrading to Buy from Neutral following the stock's Brexit-related drop.
    • The $33 price target suggests near-20% upside from yesterday's close.
    • Investing in WY is essentially a play on the domestic housing recovery and American timberland as an asset class, says the team, and thus relatively uncorrelated with what's happening across the pond.
    • Should the U.S. economy slow down, it means lower interest rates, which should make WY's 4.3% dividend especially attractive.

    • High lumber prices could be around for awhile, says Citi's Anthony Pettinari, as dealers have underestimated the strength of the housing market.
    • In addition to strong demand and lean inventories, the resolution of the Canadian softwood lumber trade dispute, a return of Chinese buyers to the market, and an early start to the fire season should all be bullish catalysts. There's also a possible surge in demand ahead of a potential Canadian duty hike in October.
    • Pettinari and team's top lumber stock pick is Weyerhaeuser (WY) thanks to the company's pricing power, market positioning, streamlined portfolio, and attractive valuation.

    • Weyerhaeuser (WY -2.1%) is downgraded to Neutral from Buy with a $33 price target, trimmed from $34, at DA Davidson, following Q1 earnings that topped analyst estimates while revenues came in below expectations.
    • Davidson says the main source of the variance was share count, as it used anticipated shares outstanding at quarter-end while WY used the weighted average shares outstanding, which was substantially lower; assumptions on share count could factor in variance again in Q2, although to a smaller magnitude, the firm says.
    • The firm cautions that it would take a minimum of a full quarter to be able to better calibrate WY's acquisition of Plum Creek, and estimates were likely to be revised down at that time.
    • Davidson now expects WY to post full-year EPS of $0.62 in 2016 and $0.99 in 2017, down from a respective $1.03 and $1.25 previously.
