Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of paper maker Boise
So what: Competitor International Paper
Now what: The news isn't exactly about Boise today, but it may make the market rethink the value of these companies. Boise has a P/E ratio of just 7.2 and trades at a slight discount to book value even after the pop today. I'm not going to buy into this move, since Boise is getting a side benefit from another company's bump, but it is worth taking a second look at the stock based on current valuation.
