    Any thoughts on sale of Summerville sawmill? Other than supply of raw materials for paper operations, some management discussion needs to happen ..... where will these sales proceeds be deployed?

    Why hasn’t Westrock acknowledged and disclosed the ransom amount?

    Buy the dip. I have been strong on WRK and SEE for months now and it has paid! Covid has pushed e-commerce projections by 10+ years. Now all they have to do is keep up with demand. Lead time with Sealed Air products use to be 2 weeks are not 3-6 months.

    Look at the cash flow and free cash flow numbers. Significantly higher than LY. Might signal a buyback and/ or div increase.

    Domtar is up over 30% in the last month and up over 4% today with huge volume. Just picked up close to a billion in cash. Their CEO is trying to rework company from fine papers to packaging. WRK CEO loves acquisitions.

    WRK is down over 6 percent. It's IT systems has been hacked and held for ransomware. Many of you are in IT. What are your thoughts?
  • J
    I'm thinking that this significant drop is likely an overreaction. In my mind, worst case scenario is that they have to completely wipe all infected servers and hard drives and reload from their backups.

    Steve Grasso recommended this four times since November. Last time on 01/27 as Grasso's final trade. I bought after listening to Steve and wondering whether it is a good move by me?

    Temporary setback. production continues. Some shipments delayed is all

    The ransomware attack on the company has really affected the stock price !! Very undervalued !!
  • U
    I got to say the market has to be pretty happy with those earnings
  • J
    As a accountant any cost associated with this breach will be excluded from earnings target, so again this is just a one time adjustment and the company will get it corrected. Earnings being reported January 28 will look good.

    wrk is trading lower in sympathy with IP's earnings even though WRK earnings were great. hahahaha... what a scam. The stock market is such a joke.

    Is it true that $WRK is working with Taco Bell on an alternative foodstuff to compete with $BYND ? Ma6 as well eat recycled corrugated with Fire Sauce instead of that fake meat stuff.

    Wednesday 1/6/21 first day back on air @CNBCFastMoney looking forward to it! Still own all my favorites names $BFT $STPK $TSE $CPRI $WRK $OLN among others. Bought $AAPL recently still holding.

    Have they quantified the loss on the Cyber attack yet on the CC? I did not listen in. Is it still ongoing or is the attack shut down? Did they actually pay any ransom???? This is what is holding back the stock not earnings. Remember, this stock was just 47 before the Cyber attack news hit. Earnings are in line and the stock is still down $5.00!!

    OK the algorithms triggered and those who had stop orders just lost their shares. Remember this happened to Target when its data was compromised and look where Target is today. This is a manipulation of a stock price at its best. I am a long term holder and and enjoy the stock increase and dividends.
