Likes it, and continues to buy. It did check back in January, and we've seen this before. Seems to be consolidating in low $40s. High beta, volatile stock. Considerably more upside. Expects good earnings growth in 2021. Methanol market is really firming up, prices are up.

A wild stock. They have been having some production troubles combined with methanol prices coming down. It is a whippy stock. It is part of the recovery trade and you could inch in a little bit more.

Don't put all your money into this one. It's a one-product, commodity company. A price taker, rather than a price maker. It's a trade, not an investment. It can go down as fast as it can go up.

(A Top Pick Jan 09/20, Up 7%) It's done well in the past coming out of past recessions. When we get back to more robust economic conditions, methanol demand will pick up. Methanol prices are already up off June/July lows. A survivor.

Moved nicely since the summer, but more in the tank. Wildly cyclical. Recent earnings not very good, but tailwinds should improve things fourth quarter. Contract prices for methanol are up.

Global methanol player. Quite cyclical, follows the economy and oil prices. Comes off in a recession. Could get back to the $90s, but she avoids the cyclical names.

It is an additive in many chemicals. There is a demand in the energy area, where that sector's demand has been pretty weak. There needs to be some driver in the sector in the business to make it go higher, but he does not know what that is.

Offers selective exposure to cyclicals during this recovery. MX holds a 14% share of global methanol market, used in plastics and fuel blending. Generates heavy free cash and buys back shares at the top of the economic cycle. They run efficient plants in Canada, Chile, New Zealand, etc. near low-cost natural gas supplies. Methanol's price is now very low as the pandemic pressures transportation fuel demand. A value stock, so now is a great time to enter it. It trades at 1.4x book value (10-year average is 2.5x). Upside is huge. (Analysts’ price target is $30.42)

It is a cyclical stock. It is a best of breed. Their advantage is low cost leadership. Some of their plants are idle right now. It is likely a double coming out of this. (Analysts’ price target is $28.54)

It has benefited from the fall in Natural Gas prices, which is its feed stock, but it suffered with the drop off in demand for gasoline. He would say it is similar in seasonality to WTI. If oil gets strength, this one should do well, consider late in the summer time. We aren't there yet.

Why correlated to oil? He owns it and was disappointed they decided to cut the dividend by 90% -- the first cut ever. It had been yielding 11% up to that, so the market was expecting some cut. It correlates to natural  gas an input, but its output is related to gasoline as methanol is an additive to the fuel. He thinks going forward, although this is a cyclical business they should be able to weather the recession as it has in the past. He expects juicy capital appreciation as it trades 0.8 times book value. They have idled high cost facilities. It produces 13% of the world's methanol. Not a dividend payer anymore, but good upside on capital.
