  • 1.

The company's product, the SuperFilter, combines high-temperature superconductors with cryogenic cooling technology to produce a filter with significant advantages over conventional filters. The company was engaged primarily in research and development and generated revenues primarily from government research contracts. " (11/17/2018)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We agree with management’s 2018 view and believe a combination of higher product prices and lower feedstock costs will lead to y-o-y earnings gains at Trinseo in 2018. A capacity-weighted pricing basket of Trinseo’s main products has already experienced a 7.4% gain relative to the company’s 2017 average. We expect this pricing momentum to continue in the near- to medium-term as a result of a capacity addition, vacuum-driven tightening in supply/demand balances. We also believe that retreating oil prices, as well as ethylene capacity additions, will lead to lower y-o-y raw material prices for Trinseo in 2018. Factoring in the lag effect, the spread on a capacity-weighted basket of Trinseo’s product prices to raw material costs has already expanded relative to the 2017 average—and we see this trend continuing through 2018."
