Below are the three companies in the Paper Packaging industry with the lowest forward earnings yields.

Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.

Ufp Technologies ranks lowest with a forward earnings yield of 4.9%. Bemis Co is next with a forward earnings yield of 4.9%. Avery Dennison ranks third lowest with a forward earnings yield of 6.8%.

Graphic Packagin follows with a forward earnings yield of 7.5%, and Sonoco Products rounds out the bottom five with a forward earnings yield of 7.9%.
