Chicago — Fitch Ratings points out, in a recent special report, that the paper industry is making a gradual comeback. They observed that second quarter operating results had improved over the first quarter of this year, with earnings generally better or losses smaller. But the upturn is moderate, Fitch notes, and the numbers have not risen to the pre-housing downturn levels of last year.

Fitch forecasts that modest improvements will continue into the third quarter in all paper grades except newsprint, and also in the packaging and containerboard segment.
