Just announced they were selling off $3-$4 billion of assets. Companies like this have very strong seasonality at this time of year, usually from around October right through until at least the end of the year and into the springtime as well. Chart shows the stock is trying to form a base. Longer-term technicals are pretty good. Any kind of weakness you see in the next couple of weeks is an opportunity to Buy.

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.

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.

Does well from Nov to May of each year. Seasonal strength is petering out early this year. Now is the time to take some money off the table.
