Plum Creek Timber has a Forrest products competitive advantage. These shares have long been owned by Value oriented investors. PCL is a strong BUY on the slight earnings report related weakness and current market correction.

When a company's dividend exceeds its earnings and it is forced to sell assets -- in this case, valuable timber land -- to continue to pay it, it doesn't bode well for the company (or the dividend for that matter). Plum Creek is playing it too close to the edge. I see a dividend cut and an underperforming stock over the next few years.

Plum Creek Timber controls one of the largest most geographically diverse land and lumber banks in the world. More than just slum lords of the forest, Plum Creek’s team of foresters are great custodians of it.

Land and forests are increasingly valuable in a world with a growing population.

The dividend is nice but even with a rise in commodity prices I can't see a valuation here that makes sense.

Housing and construction have pretty well bottomed out. PCL won't knock your socks off, but you will get paid pretty well to wait with that 4.4% dividend. This is a great candidate for a retirement portfolio.

While I'm not crazy about the P/E of 40, I'm even less keen on the market as a whole right now, and timber provides stable value.

Jeremy Grantham points out the advantages of forestry, a renewable resource.

Peter Lynch says, try to find a company that any idiot could run, because sooner or later, that idiot will be running it. So how's this for a business model:

1) Get land.
2) Plant tree on land.
3) Chop down tree; sell tree.
4) Repeat.

I like it. I like the long-term time horizon. I like the moat - could you enter the forestry business as a viable competitor tomorrow? Where's your hectares? Where's your old-growth?

I like everything about it.

The recent desaster in Japan along with other world desasters will put a large demand on timber products. This will be a boon to PCL in the short term followed in the long term by a gradual increase in domestic construction and land development. PCL is the largest owner of undevelpted land in the US

Trees continue to grow adding value as we wait for the housing market to recover. When the housing market gets back to normal, Plum Creek will have a great selection of prime lumber to offer. A decent dividend will we wait.

Simply based on the expectation for land prices to rise in the next 5 years.

PCL should hold its value and the dividend brings in cash. It will probably not, however, be a big gainer.
