NEW YORK, February 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, Investors Alliance announced new research reports highlighting
Rock-Tenn Company (NYSE: RKT), International Paper Company (NYSE: IP),
Packaging Corp of America (NYSE: PKG), Clearwater Paper Corp (NYSE: CLW) and
KapStone Paper and Packaging Corp. (NYSE:KS). Today's readers may access these
reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and
analyst ratings - via the links below.

Rock-Tenn Company Research Report

Shares for Rock-Tenn rose by 4 percent after Deutsche Bank reported that
Georgia-Pacific Corp. plans to raise its price for containerboard by $50 a
ton. A price increase from Georgia-Pacific, a privately held tissue and
cardboard producer, would likely instigate price increases in other
containerboard producers as well, ending a stretch of more than two years of
unchanged prices. Higher prices would finally reflect the high demand for
Rock-Tenn's corrugated packaging products. Net sales for the corrugated
packaging segment increased $67 million to $1590 million compared to the prior
year quarter, and with more orders expected in the spring and summer season
where demand for shipping cartons usually increases, many expect a good run
for Rock-Tenn. The Full Research Report on Rock-Tenn Company - including full

International Paper Company Research Report

International Paper recently completed its acquisition of Temple-Inland, a
corrugated packaging and building products manufacturer. Analysts expect that
this acquisition will fortify International Paper's packaging business in
North America to 34 percent from the current level of 27 percent. This follows
International Paper's acquisition of the Sabanci's shares in Olmuksa, a
corrugated packaging company based in Turkey, giving International Paper
leverage in the Turkish corrugated market. Turkey's corrugated packaging
market is currently the 7^th largest in Europe with expected continued average
growth rates of greater than 5 percent annually. Strength in the Turkish
market may also serve as potential growth platform for the Middle East. With
these acquisitions, International Paper is well-positioned to take advantage
of the news of price increases containerboard.  The Full Research Report on

production. In the coming year, Clearwater can capitalize on the low prices of

KapStone Paper and Packaging Corp. Research Report

KapStone ended the fourth quarter of 2012 record net sales of $301 million, up
12 percent versus the fourth quarter of 2011. The average mill revenue per ton
also increased by approximately $14 to $534 as the fall season's domestic
containerboard increase was fully implemented. KapStone CEO Roger Stone

containerboard and corrugated prices will drive growth. The company may also
reap the benefits from additional acquisition synergies with US Corrugated and
the opening of a new manufacturing facility in Aurora, Illinois. Analysts are
optimistic about KapStone's prospects, with more price hikes around the corner
and an increased production capacity. Impressed by KapStone's recent
performance, Deutsche Bank recently reaffirmed their Buy rating on the shares
