Bull of the Day

We are upgrading our recommendation on Weyerhaeuser Co. (WY) from Neutral to Outperform based on the high growth the company has achieved, reducing total costs and increasing prices. Also, the company is making an earnest effort to reduce its debt and maintain a healthy debt to equity ratio.

The company's earnings increased a whopping 83% year over year in the third quarter to $0.22 per share. The sales also soared 12.9% year over year to $1,772 million. Operating profits escalated 102% and long-term debt decreased 7.9% year over year. Backlog for Real Estate remains solid.

Our long-term Outperform recommendation on the stock indicates that it will beat the broader U.S. market over the next six to twelve months. Our target price is $32.00 based on 2012 P/E of 68.1x.
