Overview: Paper Stocks

The first forms of paper were designed to record information. The origins of paper date back to China when mulberry bark, hemp and water were mixed together to make a paste.

The first paper mill was established in England in 1803. Its invention made paper a highly traded commodity throughout Europe. It was mainly used for publishing books and newspapers.

Domtar Corporation (NYSE:UFS) was founded in 1848 in England. The company focused on pulp and paper. By 1965, it was generating revenues of over a billion dollars. Shortly thereafter, Clearwater Timber Company (NYSE: CLW) was established in 1900 in Lewistown, Idaho. It quickly grew to become the largest white pine mill in the world.

Tons of paper are produced each year for the growing needs of the packaging industry. Paper is a cost effective method of transporting, protecting and preserving a wide range of products such as electronics, glassware and food. Since paper is biodegradable and recyclable, it has become a preferred alternative to plastic.

Features To Look For In Paper

  1. Steady growth in earnings per share. Every quarter, most of these stocks earn earnings per share (EPS). You can calculate a company’s EPS by dividing its net income by the total number of shares outstanding.
  1. Low price/earnings ratio. You can tell if a company is undervalued or overvalued by its price-earnings (P/E) ratio. Many paper stocks under $10 have the lowest P/E ratios. It also allows you to compare a company’s stock performance on a standard benchmark with other companies in the industry.
  1. A high volume of shares traded. You can consider the average trading volume of paper stocks to gauge their liquidity. Stocks with higher liquidity may be easier to buy and sell.
