What are Wall Street analysts saying about Huntsman stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Huntsman stock:
  • 1. med analysts commented, "We further contend that consensus estimates and industry consultants have historically overestimated supply additions while underestimating capacity closures. In 2014, industry consultants overestimated global MDI supply additions by 700bps while underestimating closures by 600bps. Additionally, the supply side has been plagued of late by a large number of planned and unplanned outages, which again, in our view, are not being properly captured by consensus." (9/17/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Earnings estimate for Huntsman for the second quarter and full year have been stable lately. The company is well placed to gain from its actions to grow its downstream specialty and formulation businesses. The recent Demilec buyout is also expected to offer significant synergies. Moreover, Huntsman is focused on expanding its margins and generating strong free cash flows. It also remains committed to deleverage its balance sheet. The company has also outperformed the industry it belongs to over the past year.  However, Huntsman faces headwinds from higher raw material cost and significant plant outages.  Benefits of short-term margin spike is also expected to reduce in its MDI busines."
