Plum Creek is scheduled to release its fourth quarter earnings on Feb 3. In a major development, in November, Plum Creek and Weyerhaeuser Co. inked a merger deal to create a $23-billion timber, land and forest products company, the largest in the U.S. Earlier, Plum Creek’s third-quarter 2015 earnings came in at $0.58 per share, comfortably beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.51 and the prior-year quarter figure $0.34. We believe that a geographically diversified private timberland portfolio, healthy balance sheet and share repurchase bode well. But, strict environmental policies and huge competition from substitute products are concerns for the company.
