  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "With the Valvoline (VVV, NC) spin imminent, followed shortly thereafter by an investor day, we expect the investment debate to focus increasingly on opportunities for further portfolio simplification (doable, but not a prime catalyst in our view), prospects for FCF generation, and visibility on operating leverage. Tweaking estimates: We are raising 2017E $0.15 to $5.70 and 2018E $0.10 to $6.10 to reflect less F/X headwinds and a slightly more positive macro environment. These estimates translate into $2.20 and $2.60, respectively, for Ashland ex-Valvoline. We now forecast $119m in FCF before dividends in 2017E, and $170m in 2018E." (2/21/2017)
