Huntsman Corporation Research Report

Huntsman announced that it will be increasing global prices of its main
product, titanium-dioxide pigment, effective March 15 this year. The company
is the world's third largest producer of the said pigment, which is used as a
white pigment in coatings. Prices will be raised 10 cents per pound in North
America while one ton of the pigment will cost $300 more in Europe, Africa,
the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific Region. With this, the company's
non-pigment businesses have been projected to have a record year in 2013.
Meanwhile, Huntsman recently reported its Q4 2012 financial results, posting
earnings of 24 cents per share and revenue of $2.62 million. Both were lower
numbers when compared year over year, but met analyst expectations. This year,
the company expects to spend roughly $450 million on capital expenditures,
while pension expenses are seen to rise by around $25 million in 2013.
Adjusted effective tax rate is forecast to be 35%, higher than 30% in 2012.

E I Du Pont De Nemours And Co Research Report

DuPont, which also has business interests in agriculture, says it can increase
wheat yields by 15 to 20 percent if it is able to manufacture a hybrid version
of the widely planted grain, of which the company has been trying to develop
through conventional and biotechnological approaches with Syngenta AG.
Management says wheat has been lagging productivity-wise due to a lack of
genetic modification efforts to boost yields, and would be a great opportunity
for the company to protect intellectual property in wheat hybrids than the
inbred varieties currently available, as hybrid seed saved from a prior
harvest produce less grain. Meanwhile, the company also announced the
commercialization of its two advanced renewable fuels: cellulosic ethanol,
made from agricultural residues and dedicated energy crops, and biobutanol, a
high-performance "drop in" fuel fully compatible with the current fuel and
vehicle systems. The Full Research Report on E I Du Pont De Nemours And Co -

HB Fuller Co Research Report

HB Fuller has been updated by Deutsche Bank from "hold" to "buy" and raised
the price target from $42 to $47. The investment bank said the company is
meeting its 5-year financial targets in early 2011, with 6% organic growth and
EBITDA margin +80 bps to 11.7% in 2012, with the potential of the
transformative $405MM Forbo acquisition to meet 2015 targets. The bank also
said it was previously skeptical with the proposed plan, as organic sales
growth of 5-8% seemed unreachable given volumes had declined in 7 of the prior
10 years, as well as the 15% EBITDA margin target appeared aspirational
vis-à-vis the 10.9% EBITDA margin in 2010. Meanwhile, the company recently
paid out a dividend of 8 cents per share on February 21 this year. The Full
