- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Huntsman Corporation is among the world's largest global manufacturers of differentiated and commodity chemical products for a variety of industrial and consumer applications. " (10/11/2017)
- 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)

Huntsman (NYSE:HUN) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
