What are Wall Street analysts saying about Methanex stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Methanex stock:
  • 1. med analysts commented, "We believe the doubling in methanol price from their end-of-2015 lows is warranted and that current pricing levels are sustainable. Our conviction in the sustainability of current methanol pricing rests on four legs: 1) the recent run-up in crude oil/coal prices and the high correlation between crude oil/coal and methanol prices; 2) as much as 7% of global methanol supply experiencing either outages or curtailments, particularly in China; 3) Chinese inventory levels hovering near their three-year lows; and 4) supply risk from Iran mitigated by re-imposition of sanctions on the country. Beyond the near term, we believe investor fears are overblown concerning a potential slackening of global supply/demand fundamentals on the back of the arrival of greenfield methanol capacity." (8/6/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Methanex should gain from healthy demand fundamentals for methanol. The wide disparity between the price of crude oil and that of natural gas and coal has resulted in increased use of methanol in energy applications. The  Louisiana project is also expected to create significant value for shareholders and meaningfully contribute to cash generation. Moreover, Methanex remains committed to boost shareholder returns. The company has also outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year." (6/12/2018)
