Citi downgrades Dow to Neutral on 'mounting capacity additions'
Citi analyst P.J. Juvekar downgraded Dow Inc. (DOW) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $50 from $54. There are "mounting capacity additions" in Dow's three major chains - ethylene, siloxanes, and urethanes, Juvekar tells investors in a research note. As such, the analyst believes fundamental weakness in the company's three major chains is likely to persist. Ethylene stocks have become trading stocks now late in the cycle, says Juvekar. He believes this also has negative implications for LyondellBasell (LYB) and Westlake Chemical (WLK).

Westlake Chemical price target lowered to $53 from $57 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Aleksey Yefremov lowered his price target for Westlake Chemical to $53 from $57 and keeps a Reduce on the shares following the company's Q2 results. The stock's valuation level is "excessive" given the possibility of stalling caustic soda pricing and falling PE prices, Yefremov tells investors in a research note. The analyst remains cautious on caustic soda pricing due to "weak demand globally."

BofA/Merrill shakes up ratings in chemicals space with 2 upgrades, 4 downgrades
BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Steve Byrne said it appears that risks of U.S. economic contagion from the broader global macro slowdown are "steadily building." Given this view, he has generally moved to be more cautious on the earnings outlook and ratings for stocks with global industrial exposure, resulting in his upgrade of two chemicals stocks and his downgrades of four others. Byrne downgraded Dow Inc. (DOW) to Underperform from Neutral and Westlake Chemical (WLK) to Underperform from Buy, noting their commodity exposure. He downgraded Axalta Coating (AXTA) to Neutral from Buy and cut PPG (PPG) to Underperform from Neutral as he is getting more cautious about their revenue prospects. He upgraded Venator Materials (VNTR) to Buy from Underperform, citing what he views as an attractive risk-reward as he expects earnings will grow in 2020, driven by product upgrades and productivity initiatives. Byrne also upgraded Nutrien (NTR) to Neutral from Underperform as he believes Ag stocks could prove to be defensive plays.
