One product company with methanol, a gasoline additive and feedstock for a lot of industrial chemicals. In 2008, people drove less, which cut back in methanol use. Also chemical industry fell off. Opposite is now happening with China being the biggest market globally for new cars. Opening a new low-cost plant in Egypt. Good price.

China, a laggard environmentally because of coal usage, will be building between 20 and 40 nuclear plants in the next 25 years and doesn't have enough uranium. Cigar Lake is now being successfully de-watered, making it the biggest global producer. A story for the next 2 decades.

Not been a whiz-bang since becoming public but has increased earnings, dividends, market share and footprint in the US. Thinks the stock is behind the news and has some catching up to do.

Not hot on pharmaceuticals because of generic manufacturing and litigation risks. This one is a pretty good choice in pharmaceuticals with a pretty good product line up going forward. A lower risk way to play pharmaceuticals is through Johnson & Johnson (JNJ-N) that has both pharmaceuticals and branded consumer products.
