Westlake Chemical downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi
Citi analyst P.J. Juvekar downgraded Westlake Chemical to Neutral from Buy with a price target of $23, down from $26. The third quarter for Chemicals felt like a continuation of the second quarter, with weak autos and construction activity as well as slowing global trade, Juvekar tells investors in a research note. The analyst has turned cautious on chlor-alkali and has moved to the sidelines on the chlor-alkali chain. Although there is not much capacity on the horizon, demand has been softer this year and is unlikely to pick up, contends Juvekar.

Olin, Westlake Chemical second half EBITDA estimates at risk, says Barclays
Barclays analyst Michael Leithead says lower caustic soda prices "once again lead earnings estimates lower" for both Olin (OLN) and Westlake Chemical (WLK). After September caustic soda contract prices "surprisingly" settled down $10/dst in recent days, the analyst lowered his estimates for both companies. His numbers for both show ~10% downside risk to consensus second half of 2019 EBITDA estimates. Leithead lowered his price target for Equal Weight-rated Olin to $21 from $22 and for Equal Weight-rated Westlake to $65 from $71.

Nomura Instinet cuts Olin target to $16, remains cautious on Westlake
Nomura Instinet analyst Aleksey Yefremov lowered his price target for Olin (OLN) to $16 from $20 citing the "downside surprise" to caustic soda prices. IHS reported last Friday that the caustic soda domestic contract index declined $10/ton month-over-month in September, a surprise, says the analyst, who had expected a flat to down $5/ton settlement. He believes the caustic soda price declines contrast with what should have been a tight supply picture, as 9% of the U.S. capacity experienced outages in September. As such, Yefremov interprets the September settlement as a fairly strong indicator of oversupply in the domestic caustic soda market, and he struggles "to see major positive catalysts on the horizon." The analyst keeps a Neutral rating on Olin and also remains cautious on Westlake Chemical (WLK).

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.
