JPMorgan analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas downgraded Orion Engineered Carbons (OEC) to Neutral from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $20 from $31 following the company's Q4 results. Orion's peer company Cabot (CBT) offers a comparable but lower valuation and stronger business prospects, Zekauskas tells investors in a research note. Cabot has about 50% more carbon black pounds per share than Orion, in a rising environment for carbon black prices, says the analyst.
