Is the same as it was last year at this time. There is seasonality. He would look to take some off the table. If you are a longer term believer then you might want to hold.

Chemical stocks like this usually do very, very well from around November until this time of year. This year, it did okay but recently has not been doing as well. Chart shows it has developed a slight downward trend. It’s below its 20 day moving average. If you own, it might be an opportunity to take money off the table.

In the global chemicals industry, there is too much capacity right now and the middle east is bringing on even more capacity at a frenetic rate. Dow has cheaper feedstock through cheap gas and oil. Very attractive dividend at almost 4%.

A pure play on global expansion. Sold his holdings a couple of months ago because he wanted to lessen his exposure to pure industrials and pure global plays. No real expansion probabilities with this one.

Nothing wrong with their business mix and how they function. You have to look at this in an environment where we are talking about relatively low global growth. There is no rush to get into a firm like this. This is one where you want to pick and choose your entry point.

This is on her watch list as it is one of those companies that is benefiting from low natural gas prices. However, chemical stocks are being slowed by macro economic growth. She would rather wait and see more clarity and positive signposts that things are starting to improve.

Have come out with a new corn seed that will help with the worst US drought in a long time. They ran out and could not make enough. Their AG side is doing well but their chemical side is not doing as well. This is an entry point.

You buy cyclical companies when they are out of favour and sell them when they are in. Tied to the global growth economy. When things pick up, the leverage in this company will allow profits to grow at a very fast pace. Trading at 11X earnings. 4.2% dividend.

Low natural gas prices are beneficial to this company. This is an economically sensitive name so if there is a growth scare, which there may be, this stock will pull back.

There is going to start to be a recovery in chemicals. Global demand is probably stronger than people realize. Feels that getting squeezed on the input costs right now. Should do alright.

Bouncing off the 200 day moving average, which looks encouraging. Based on some of the fundamentals, it doesn't look bad. Beat its earnings in the last quarter.

Had a beautiful run but has outrun its FMV numbers. Trading at book value, which historically would be cheap but has outrun itself and he would take money off the table and let it settle before stepping back in. Earnings forecasts do not support the current price.

Made a terrible acquisition and it is unclear that they will be able to close it. Stock market thinks they bet the company on it. Lots of bad things will happen if they don't close and they don't have the money for it. Also, their products are not in demand. Would wait and see.

Being tied to oil, growth and the overall view of the commodity cycle, it is a real challenge to see it moving up.

Pullout by Kuwait on the expected takeover of Rohm & Haas Co. Some clarity is needed as to whether they pay the full $78 financing, selling some assets there will be some volatility in the short-term. Longer-term an excellent company. 10.6% dividend.

Always been a very well run company. Complicated company to try to figure out because of a lot of moving parts including being a very large petrochemical user. Good dividend yield and trading at pretty reasonable earnings.
