Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Dow Chemical Company (The) stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Dow has modestly outperformed the Zacks categorized Chemicals-Diversified industry over a year. The company should gain from its cost-cutting and aggressive portfolio management actions. The planned merger with DuPont is also expected to create significant synergies. Dow should also gain from cost synergies associated with Dow Corning Silicones business and its strategic investments in the U.S. Gulf Coast and the Middle East. However, Dow’s agriculture business remains affected by depressed crop commodity prices. The company also faces pricing and currency headwinds as well as weak demand in the energy market." (1/24/2017)

  • J P Morgan Chase & Co analysts commented, "The reports of our chemical companies concerning order patterns and business conditions in July suggest that European recessionary conditions are not a base case, and that global demand is holding up generally well," analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas wrote in a note.The analyst still believes Dow Chemical/E I Du Pont De Nemours And Co (NYSE: DD) could be "a large free cash generator over a longer period of time as Dow's capital expenditures move substantially lower." Further, the company is expected to benefit from significant capacity expansions and efforts to achieve cost reduction in the consolidation of the companies.Related Link: Du Pont's Beat Doesn't Take Barclays' Focus Off Dow DealZekauskas noted that Dow was able to maintain a level EBITDA year-over-year in the second quarter significantly due to its cost reduction efforts and by running capacity of ethylene and derivatives at reasonable rates.The analyst added, "Should Dow meet its target of an incremental $400 million in equity income from Sadara, the benefit would be an additional $0.35 per share."It may be the case that Dow's earnings can easily rise above $4.00 annually from a reasonable functioning of Sadara. It is easy to forget that Performance Materials and Performance Plastics equity income combined were $579 million in 2014 and are likely to be $75 million in 2016," (7/29/2016)
