Jefferies reiterated a Buy rating on WestRock LLC (NYSE: WRK), and raised the price target to $53.00 (from $50.00), following the company's 3Q earnings report.

Analyst Philip Ng commented, "With WRK delivering at the top end of its synergy target, coupled with a $90 - 95 mil tailwind from lower capex and pension in 2017, FCF should remain strong (9% yield) despite the headwinds it's facing. With the stock lagging IP and PKG, and trading with a higher FCF yield and compelling dividend, WRK offers great absolute and relative value, and it's poised to outperform now that sentiment in containerboard has improved."
