  • US Morning Meeting Highlights 22 August 2011Basic Materials Gail S. Glazerman, CFA............+1-212-713 3486U.S. Paper & Forest Products. AnalystAugust US paper/board price update gail.glazerman@ubs.com Overall stable, continued modest updrift in graphic paper pricesPulp & Paper Week reported August paper and board prices this weekend. August largelycontinued trends from the prior several months. They showed modest improvement in printing.and writing paper pricing and stable pricing on packaging grades. However, there were somemixed messages in uncoated free sheet. Containerboard commentary remains positiveThe newsletter suggested, consistent with our view, that broad-based pricing is unlikely giventhe current macro environment. However, they painted a fairly positive picture of current marketbalance. They report that some major producers are 2-3 weeks behind on shipments, a fewproducers are seeking modest $10-30/t price hikes in the West (apparently to account for.freight) and that export sales are fairly competitive with domestic mill nets. P&PW notes demandhas held in Aug. Graphic papers – some ups and downs (but generally up)P&PW showed modest 0.5-1% price recovery for printing & writing grades. While P&PW raiseduncoated free cut size prices $7/t, they lowered offset grades by $10/t. They raised coated.$5-10/t and uncoated groundwood by $5/t. Newsprint prices held at current levels for the 12thstraight month. Favor packaging grades – but macro is the key driver for nowWe continue to favor the outlook for paper-based packaging grades over graphic papers. Whiledemand remains a major risk given the macro back drop we see much better supply/demandtrends in packaging. Within graphic we favor uncoated free. We generally expect stable pricingover the next few months.-Consumer, Cyclical John Janedis, CFA................... +1-212-713 1064Janedis’ Media Matters.

Meanwhile, we are cautious on CHK, KWK, PXD,SD & EOG in lower oil & gas price environments given their material FCF deficit. What is different from the run up to 2008-9 recession?1) oil prices are near mid-cycle levels & gas is already near the trough while both were at spikylevels in mid-2008; 2) E&Ps have a negative 5% FCF yield today unlike the +4% in 2Q08; & 3).balance sheets are of similar strength but today’s hedge positions are at lower prices than mid-2008.

However, despite a tough environment in F11, CFN.posted its best year w/ ~10% bookings growth (units will be placed in F12). We believe growth islargely coming from facilities where CFN was previously not present. Streamlining co enables international M&A strategyCFN has repeatedly noted significant inefficiencies in its legal / IT structures. We estimate thatCFN can drive op mgns from 18.1% in F12 to 20.3% in F14 largely on mix (low mgn pumps tohigh mgn disposables) while we believe cost savings from streamlining the organization will beused to absorb acquisitions. Our perception is that co will internally refine its M&A strategy inthe near-term w/ a focus on ex-US expansion. We have no specific reasons to doubt CFN’s.ability to reposition the company for better growth. That said, international expansion does carrysome operational risk.
