    I am staying far away from WRK - It looks like it is going to drop off a cliff. I actually get way better stocks at

    Faith has done wonders for my portfolio! These guys really know what they are doing. Highly recommended for all traders.

    Look for a raise in the Dividend by today or next day.

    Waiting for $31

    Definitely overdone packaging not going away because of a slowing economy

    Last I knew WRK supplied all boxes for FedEx. My speculative guess would be that today's drop is associated with the severe drop of FedEx. They provide boxes for numerous large customers. I'm thinking that this is most likely a bit of an overreaction.

    same price as 6 yrs ago. Yet another hack dividend stock!!
  • G
    Down 25% in 14 days is a little is a little extreme I think. Probably a good entry point.
  • E
    Waiting for $30

    In an economic slowdown , or even a recession.......less boxes of stuff and packaging gets shipped.
  • b
    There are rumours of a paper shortage. Printing/copy paper has gone up 30% in the past month.

    Great quarter, too bad the analcysts who cover the stock always have a doom and gloom outlook.
  • M
    Pulp prices still rising
  • R
    Here comes the mad rise.

    VERY GOOD earnings report (beat by $0.10) and increased forward guidance for EBITDA and cash flow. The stock is too low given the great fundamentals. I'll hold my stock and potentially buy some more with the 5% yield that is SOLID.

    I seldom get "VERY BULLISH", but this earnings report impressed me. EPS beat by 5-6 cents depending on who's estimate you use. Great cash flow generation. Kapstone fully integrated. Paid off $.5B in debt , which strengthened the balance sheet. Raised the dividend by 2.2% (because they could afford to). Dividend now 5%. To produce these results in a tough operating environment is awesome. Each quarter the balance sheet will become stronger. Current valuation by any financial measure is very low.
    Why would anyone sell this stock with that picture?
    Full disclosure......I have a good position in this stock but I'm thinking about buying more.

    I am OK with this earnings report. They are making the right moves, including the dividend cut. The estimate was $0.60 adjusted. WestRock reported $0.67 adjusted. Dividend yield is still 2.7% after the cut. I am holding but also I'm more inclined to buy than sell here.
