- Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "In Q4, Methanex capitalized on elevated production (+6% QoQ) and higher prices. Prices continued to rise in Q1, supported by a steepening cost curve, increased demand from, and rising utilization rates at MTO plants and stable chemical demand. Prices remain below reinvestment levels and Methanex remains best positioned to capitalize on low-cost capacity additions (e.g. Chile) should demand support market growth. We expect a decision in 2H17. Reiterate Buy." (1/27/2017)
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Methanex swung to a loss in the third quarter of 2016. However, loss per share was lower than the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Revenues fell year over year in the quarter, but beat expectations. Methanex should gain from healthy demand fundamentals for methanol.

The company also remains committed to boost shareholder returns." (12/6/2016)
