RBC Capital analyst Paul Quinn upgraded Mercer International (NASDAQ: MERC) from Underperform to Outperform with a price target of $15.00 (from $8.00).

The analyst commented, "When we moved Mercer to Underperform in October, our thesis was underpinned by a negative pulp market outlook in both the short and medium term. Since then, the outlook for pulp has markedly improved in the short-term due to signi´Čücant supply disruptions and the medium-term is also looking better due to the delayed start-up of new capacity. We also expect Mercer to see unusual one-time gains from European power prices and a repeat of strong lumber prices. Given the attractive near-term setup, we are increasing our rating to Outperform.
