Equities Lead Investor Sentiment - Research Report on International Paper Company and Masco Corporation

HONG KONG--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2012) - Today, introduced research coverage of International Paper Company (NYSE: IP) and Masco Corporation (NYSE: MAS). Full research reports are available to readers at:

With markets in correction mode, investors are looking to quantify an accurate model, weighing positives and negatives of the months ahead. Upcoming negative pressures include China's slowdown, the European recession, the end of the Fed's Operation Twist stimulus program, continued geopolitical risks, election uncertainty, and potential 2013 budget bombshell of tax hikes and spending cuts. Meanwhile, positive offsets are driven by central banks (particularly China) cutting rather than hiking rates, deceleration in fuel and food prices, increase in consumer sentiment and resulting retail sales, signs of improvement in housing sales and new strength in auto production schedules.

Despite the current situation, our team continues to identify high momentum situations with growth potential -- there remains strong opportunity within careful discretion.
