But there could be some real value here for an income investor. International Paper sports a strong dividend, and is focusing on finding growth in emerging markets. IP was the first foreign paper company to invest in India, and has made the BRIC countries a priority. IP completely revamped its business in the past several years -- find out why we think this stock could pay off for you in the long run.
