Analytical Reports on Bemis and MeadWestvaco -- Still No Sign of a Breakthrough in Q2 2010

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA--(Marketwire - August 20, 2010) -  www.RothmanResearch.com studies the market environment influencing investors' trading decisions on the packaging & containers major players in recent time providing in depth research on Bemis Co. Inc. (NYSE: BMS) and MeadWestvaco Corporation (NYSE: MWV). Register for a free membership today on www.rothmanresearch.com to have complete access to these complimentary reports and more.

Despite modest improvements in the economy, growth in the packaging and containers industry remains stagnant. Economic issues in the U.S and Europe have primarily stunted growth. Both regions suffer from high unemployment rates, sluggish wage increases and a poor housing market. A small hike in the cost of the resin, a component of food packaging, also negatively affected revenues for some companies.

A few areas remain positive for the packaging and containers industry however.

Earnings from Bemis Co. Inc. were at $60 million for this quarter, whilst MeadWestvaco Corporation saw its profits tumble by 60% even if results were still ahead of analysts' forecasts.

The current trend in the industry is an increased interest in global expansion and more efforts to improve cost efficiency to offset the economies of the U.S and Europe. The industry is specifically targeting emerging and underdeveloped markets in an effort to kick start low volume numbers and diminished profit margins. Cost cutting measures are also being implemented by many companies to continue funnelling capital into innovation and product development to help sustain long-term growth.
