Sonoco Products Navigates Volume Headwinds Amid Persistent Inventory Destocking

Spencer Liberman Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Spencer Liberman |

Sonoco Products makes a wide range of consumer and industrial packaging, from Pringles cans to foam automotive bumpers to toilet paper cores. The company operates over 300 manufacturing facilities and serves customers across 85 countries, with North America accounting for roughly 75% of sales. Its two primary segments, consumer packaging and industrial paper packaging, supply customers with both flexible and rigid packaging products that serve nearly any packaging need. In recent years, Sonoco has undergone a portfolio transformation; it now focuses on a few core businesses and has divested from nonprioritized products and markets like high-density film, European contract packaging, and more.

More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
