CDA Founder and President Jim Anderson's Year-end PrintStockWatch Wrap-up
The below PrintStockWatch chart shows that the composite is up +30.8 percent on the year, but that does not include RRD nor its "spin" of LKSD, so we went back and looked at 2015's "Final". The combined market caps at year-end was 10,794 vs. a PSW composite for 2016 adjusted to include the "new" R.R. Donnelley (NYSE: RRD), LSC Communications (NYSE: LKSD) and Donnelley Financial Solutions (NYSE: DFIN which is no longer included in the PSW) which would have been 12,847 or still up +19.5 percent on the year. Quad/Graphics (NYSE: QUAD) was clearly the big "winner" in 2016 with a gain of +189 percent. Who said that print is dead?
