As previously reported, Citi analyst P.J. Juvekar upgraded shares of both Dow Chemical (DOW) and DuPont (DD), each to Buy from Hold, citing their "massive" cost-cutting opportunity after their proposed merger goes through as well as the potential for upside to the companies' stated $3B synergy target.
