MEOH is a thinly traded stock. Insiders and former execs have a lot of their wealth tied up in MEOH. Insider sales or purchases move the stock up or down a few percent. MEOH is also very sensitive to oil prices and any news that may impact oil or natural gas prices. And anything on the demand side too. The Iran deal could be a game changer for methanol prices due to huge capacity being planned. If sanctions are fully lifted on petchems, expect MEOH stock price to fall sharply. Long term outlook will turn sour and time to move elsewhere.
