A pretty grim picture. Newsprint prices have been lousy and on an inflation adjusted basis, they are half what they were 5 years ago. A lot of the problem is on-line advertising and every $ of that is probably coming out of newspapers.

The world's largest newsprint manufacturer. Everything that can go wrong seems to have. Eventually they'll get straightened out.

Probably too late in the cycle to get into the newsprint stocks. Has a stretched balanced sheet which should be of concern.

Largest company, but not known for having shareholder friendly type management. This would be a bet on a commodity. If currency and prices come your way, you have a disproportionate return. Very mercurial.

Stock has come down a long way but still not comfortable with it. Paper statisitics still do not look good. Growth is still slow. With the current price of newsprint, they are not generating much cash. Bad balance sheet, huge debt. Will be hurt by a rising Cdn$.

Newsprint has probably been the worst place to be in. Relatively poor demand, no pricing power and strong Cdn$ has hurt.

The problem is that they have a $30 price increase in the price of newsprint which takes a moving it from $600 to $630. This is priced in US$, so are actually receiving less in Cdn$'s than they were a year ago. Good fundamentals, but has a little more debt than he would normally like.

There has been a glut of newsprint globally. There has been no rebound in consumption that we are used to in normal cycles. Internet is a factor.
