TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly We again reiterate this $13 billion market cap chemical manufacturing company, who produces everything plastic involved in building products, as a TOP PICK. The company just completed a $1.2 billion acquisition of a European based epoxy company produces coatings for turbine blades and lightweight automotive components. Recently reported earnings beat expectations by 18% and managed a ROE of 20%. It trades at 9x earnings compared to peers at 16x and just under 2x book value. It pays a reasonable dividend, backed by a 10% payout of cash flow. We recommend keeping the stop at $80, looking to achieve $121 -- upside over 19%. Yield 1.17% (Analysts’ price target is $120.82)
