BMO Capital analyst John McNulty lowered his price target on Dow Inc to $54 and kept his Market Perform rating after its Q4 results, saying that while the company beat on earnings thanks to PMC and II&I segments offsetting weakness in P&S, its commodity and macro backdrop remain "difficult". The analyst expects Dow's earnings and EBITDA to be down in 2020 vs. 2019.

Jim Fitterling, CEO,…

Jim Fitterling, CEO, commented on the quarter: "We experienced similar economic headwinds in the quarter as we have seen all year - especially in the industrial sector - which included price and margin compression, in part driven by additional industry supply and uncertain macros. Yet once again, the Dow team navigated these factors by leveraging our core strengths - feedstock flexibility, a lean cost structure, and leading positions in consumer-driven end-markets. Together, these enabled us to capture demand growth, excluding our Hydrocarbons & Energy business, while also delivering another year-over-year improvement in cash from operations. We also deployed capital to strengthen our financial flexibility and to reward our owners, reducing debt by more than $1 billion and returning more than $600 million to shareholders. We enter 2020 in a stronger competitive and financial position, poised to continue to deliver value for our customers and shareholders."

"Building on the consistent execution of our operational playbook in 2019, we are well-positioned to navigate the market dynamics that have carried into 2020 by focusing on the actions in our control," said CEO Fitterling. "We will continue to advance our pipeline of higher-return, lower-risk investments, particularly in sectors closer to the consumer where demand conditions remain favorable. By taking advantage of our unique feedstock capabilities, we will maintain our competitive cost positions. We expect to further reduce our cost structure over the course of the year as we complete the stranded cost removal. And, we plan to direct our free cash flow toward a balance of debt reduction and returns to shareholders. Taken together, these actions will give us the ability to continue to advance our strategic and financial priorities, outperform the competition and drive value for all our stakeholders."
