Kraton, Dow Inc upgraded to Buy at SunTrust.

SunTrust analyst James Sheehan upgraded Kraton (KRA) to Buy from Hold with a price target of $31, up from $24, and also upgraded Dow Inc (DOW) to Buy from Hold with a price target of $59, up from $52, as part of his broader research note previewing the Chemicals sector in 2020. For Kraton, the analyst notes that the proceeds of its sale of Cariflex will go toward its debt reduction, removing a key overhang on the stock. Sheehan also cites improvement in the company's macro environment after 2019 headwinds around adverse U.S. weather, inventory destocking, and global demand weakness. For Dow Inc, the analyst cites its low margin level in the company's chemicals value chains limiting the downside, with added potential earnings contributions coming from its $250M of new capacity investments.

Kraton price target raised to $39 from $27 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst James Sheehan raised his price target on Kraton to $39 amid the rising peer group valuations and to reflect the possibility of value creation from the potential divestiture of its "highly profitable ariflexisoprene rubber business". The analyst also keeps his Hold rating on the shares because its progress on deleveraging is being "stalled by macro headwinds and costs from unplanned outages", noting that Kraton stock will likely trade range bound.

SunTrust sees 'lackluster' September quarter results from chemical companies
SunTrust analyst James Sheehan tells investors in a research note that he expects chemical companies to report in-line to below-consensus Q3 results driven by the trade war, slowing GDP in Europe, weak automotive and manufacturing end markets, loosening supply/demand for certain commodity product chains and FX headwinds. Looking ahead, the analyst sees "cautious" commentary for Q4 given the lack of end market acceleration and continued USD strength. The analyst lowered his price target for Chemours (CC) to $16 from $14, for Dow Inc (DOW) to $46 from $52, for Corteva (CTVA) to $28 from $30, for DuPont (DD) to $68 from $75, for Eastman Chemical (EMN) to $75 from $80, for Element Solutions (ESI) to $10 from $11, for Kraton (KRA) to $24 from $33 and for Kronos Worldwide (KRO) to $12 from $13. Sheehan raised his price target for Celanese (CE) to $120 from $108.

Fire at TPC Group plant could cause volatility for Kraton, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Chris Kapsch noted that media reports indicate there was an explosion and fire at the Port Neches, Texas facility of privately-held TPC Group, where he believes the company produces butadiene, or BD. The market typically reacts to disruptive events like this by sending spot prices higher, said Kapsch, who expects that to happen with BD in this case. BD is a key input, and he believes the single largest input, for Kraton's production of its SBC polymers, said the analyst, who notes that "the stock market has tended to be punative" to Kraton shares in the past when there has been volatility in BD prices. He assumes Kraton share could see some volatility as a result of the TPC plant fire news, but would view any sustained pressure on the stock as a buying opportunity, said Kapsch, who keeps a Buy rating on Kraton shares.

Dow Inc.price target lowered to $50 from $57 at Cowen

Neivert does see a substantive recovery in 2021. Neivert maintained his Market Perform rating on Dow Inc. shares.

Morgan Stanley downgrades Dow to Equal Weight, prefers LyondellBasell in 2020
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Vincent Andrews downgraded Dow Inc. (DOW) to Equal Weight from Overweight with an unchanged price target of $58. Concurrently, Andrews resumed coverage of LyondellBasell (LYB) with an Overweight rating and $110 price target. Though he notes his price target for LyondellBasell, with 19% upside, "is generally not enough for us to advise putting new money to work in a commodity chemical stock," Andrews believes investors should own a commodity name in 2020 and said the polyethylene chain is where he sees the best commodity chemical risk/reward. Consensus expectations for Dow imbed much more improvement in 2020 than they do for LyondellBasell, added Andrews, who also views Lyondell's ability to keep buying back stock and possibly raise its dividend as another key differentiator between the two stocks in 2020.
