Chemical stocks in general are acting extremely well. They are late cycle players. If you are a short-term investor, you might get a bump on this one.

The rise in cost of feedstock has left the stock moving sideways the last 4 months. 3.7% dividend should be safe. The biggest impetus for them is to be able to pass costs onto their customers. Good-quality stock, but don't expect a lot of growth.

One of the few industries that have reasonable pricing ability with their clients. Reasonably good cash flow. Not highly leveraged. Cyclical.

Cyclical, so not a long-term investment. The chemical cycle is doing better now. Energy prices have come down significantly and this is their raw material. The price for their product has not come down and margins have expanded.

An economically sensitive stock as its commodity chemicals. Down 6% over the last year.

There has been a move away from economically sensitive stocks. Price performance is not as strong or participating in the rally as others.

The model price is $40.86. A positive 18% differential. It's on his radar. $29.77 would be an absolute steal.

Demand they expected is low and the cost structure is going up because of higher oil/gas prices. At these levels, 8 X earnings, you should buy a company like this, because over the long-term, it's at good company.

The chemical sector overall has been having a fairly difficult time. This one is a large company and is heavily owned by index funds and index investors and in the last three years there has been a continual unweighting in favour of midsize companies that are growing faster.

The stock looks like it has bottomed. Weaker natural gas over the last little while has helped on their input costs. They increased their dividend. A powerful cash generator. A bit of a defensive stock.

The biggest problem for most of the chemical companies is the cost of their feedstock. Now that natural gas prices have started to come down, there are opportunities for a little bit more leveling off of the company. The dividend is attractive. The problem he sees is that in the long run they haven't been able to generate enough free cash flow to cover their capital expenditures.

Recently broke below its 200 day moving average, so it's at a pretty critical point now. Feels the run-up was part of the cyclical commodity cycle which is now over, so at best you're going to move sideways from this point. The downside risk is in the $42 range.

A good area to be in. Has dropped along with the energy and resource stocks. Just a normal correction. A cyclical, so there will be a time when you will want to get out.
