Company operations have not been materially impacted by force majeure announcements across the U.S. Gulf Coast beginning in mid-February in response to unexpected freezing conditions in Texas and elsewhere, Silver says, citing Kane's comments.

AdvanSix upgraded to Buy after investor meetings at CL King » 08:5612/0712/07/20
As previously reported,…
As previously reported, CL King analyst David Silver upgraded AdvanSix to Buy from Neutral with a $28 price target. The analyst, who forecasts double-digit nylon shipment growth for the next few years, argues following a meeting with company that AdvanSix "appears determined to drive underlying earnings notably higher through an array of initiatives." His "main takeaway" from last week's roadshow with senior management "had less to do with what management said and more to do with the level of investor interest," added Silver. He has raised his above-consensus Q4 and 2021 EPS estimates following the meetings, Silver noted.
