  • 2. Instinet analysts commented, "After market close today, HUN announced its expectations of y-y growth in EBITDA during 1Q17. This implies 1Q EBITDA above $274mn vs. our previous estimate of $272mn and consensus of $261mn. Herein, we raise our 1Q/2017 estimates further, reflecting the following: Strong results from MDI urethanes business, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. We also believe HUN has successfully passed through benzene costs in its PU systems business. Within Pigments and Additives, TiO2 price increases have taken effect, with more increases likely in 2Q-3Q. We note that HUN's Pori fire insurance recovery is likely to include price increases (with the impact of the fire on price adjusted out). Both of these trends are consistent with our expectations published on 2/16/17, as both MDI and TiO2 should continue to contribute to meaningful EBITDA growth during 2017-18. We raise our target by $1 to $26." (3/28/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Results will be uneven in the near term with margin pressure in MTBE offsetting a sequential improvement in MDI. A recent string of storms in the Gulf Coast were likely a $10-$15m headwind in Q3." (9/20/2016)
