Less Discounting for Uncoated Free Sheet

Although Coy Paper Company continues to witness price corrosion for Uncosted Free, the price declines appear to be leveling off. So far, for June, we only hear $5-10/ton discount from May. This results in 50lbs roll price $810-855, with spot pricing slightly below $800/ton,. Cutsize office paper transacts $120-1080/ton (spot below $1000). The two major producers of this grade, International Paper and Domtar, continue to take down time. May demand was down nearly 15% from May of 2008.
