MWV recently went through a massive reorg out of a desire to appease stock holders and move the company in the right direction. With this comes the obvious savings on expenses when it comes to layoffs, as well as a cutting of sectors that were simply not producing. While I think this reorg is currently paying off for them, I still think the dust is settling. I think the stock will go up more over the next year, but not by very much

Following activist investor Starboard Value into MeadWestVaco.

"Starboard is making several recommendations to MeadWestvaco that include: continuing with cost-cutting efforts, exploring the sale or spinoff of its non-core businesses such as the specialty chemicals business and looking at options to get more value out of its real estate assets. The activist shareholder also suggested that MeadWestvaco repurchase about $500 million of its stock in order to create more shareholder value."

MWV has been advancing spectacularly in 2009. I believe it will continue to do so in 2010. Those who rated it "underperform" have been dead wrong and missed an outstanding opportunity!

Skyrocketing fuel costs will diminish plastics sales, impact company's paper production costs, which is already under tremendous pressure from Asia.

Company has invested heavily in plastics companies in the US and Europe, companies that are unable to compete with Asian facilities.

Poor locations of plastics and paper plants in Northeast increasing transportation and energy costs.

Plastics costs will errode markets for these products.

Entertainment packaging is large percentage of customer base, which is rapidly becoming e-based.

Continues to invest heavily in packaging which may be regulated to minimize waste streams.

Company management oversells company securities to employees by making false performance claims, opening opportunity for large-scale fraud investigations.
