  • I read and studied very carefully Dan Loeb's presentation and actually many of the things he points out make a lot of sense. I am not an expert but I worked for Dow Chemical for over 30 years and one of the things that was a recurring occurrence at Dow was that every CEO always had a great plan and laws took us very close to being a great (the greatest) company but they always fell short....it was as if they could not see what was the final step they had to take. One of the things that struck me was; WHY MAKE DOW-CORNING(DC) part of one of the three spin-off companies? this company has been very successful, so why mess it up by being part of another company in which it will have to compete for capital and it's fate is tied down to this new entity. Since I am not an expert I kept my opinion to myself but when I read Dan Loeb's presentation I realized that was I was thinking is true and that Andrew continues to be in love with himself and his ideas and this does not allows him to see the big picture. I hope the new CEO can change this and unlocks all the value. I am tired of being A DAY SHORT AND A DOLLAR SHORT with Dow Chemical.
  • 70% institutional ownership.
  • If there is one actor in this that has less cred than Liveris, its Dan Loeb.
  • Need to figure what best price to get away from this so called incompetent "leader"
  • What is the distribution of shares for DOW and DD holders in the new company? Anyone know what it will be for the spinoffs? TIA.
  • Is DOW undervalued? This sort of setup suggests potential upside... Ive been struggling with this stock lately. Some of my other trades have been from aw-esomeSTOCKS which are working out pretty well.

    With six weeks having passed since the end of Q1 in March, hedge funds have now submitted 13-F reports to the SEC. These filings detail net changes in holdings for a variety of different types of positions, and analysts are now looking to the biggest names in the money manager field to get a sense of how those investors used their money in the first few months of 2017. Barry Rosenstein, the leader of JANA Partners, has long been seen as a leader in the hedge fund world. JANA's 13-F shows a number of significant changes and a relatively high degree of turnover in portfolio. Here are some of the highlights of the first quarter for Rosenstein's fund.

    New Positions in Dow Chemical, Hewlett Packard, Formula One, Tiffany, and Whole Foods
    Rosenstein took up new positions in about two dozen companies in the first three months of this year. Some of the new stakes were relatively small. A new position of 50,000 shares of Ardagh Group (ARD
    Ardagh Group S.A.
    ARD
    22.43
    +0.27%
    ), for instance, doesn't make much of a splash in Rosenstein's portfolio. Other new buys, however, were more significant. Among the top purchases in terms of share volume were new positions in Dow Chemical (DOW
    Dow Chemical Co
    DOW
    60.98
    -0.51%
    ), with more than 3.5 million shares. Rosenstein also bought up a significant stake in Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE
    Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co
    HPE
    18.79
    +1.40%
    ), amassing a collection of 4.4 million shares. JANA bought 4.1 million shares of Formula One (FWONK
    Liberty Media Corp

    ) during this period, as well as 5.6 million shares of Tiffany & Co. (TIF

    ), with another 73,600 shares in call options. Further, JANA bought up 14.2 million shares of Whole Foods Market (WFM
    Whole Foods Market Inc
    WFM
    36.22
    +0.64%
    ) and close to 3 million shares in call options.

    Increased And Lowered Stakes
    Like most hedge fund managers, Rosenstein also adjusted his positions that already existed, raising some and lowering others. He added considerably to Aetna Inc. (AET
    Aetna Inc
    AET
    141.00
    -0.26%
    ) during this period, climbing from just under 900,000 shares to roughly 1.5 million shares. He nearly doubled his holding of Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTSH
    Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp
    CTSH
    65.79
    +0.57%
    ) to 2.6 million shares. Zayo Group (ZAYO

    ZAYO
    31.88
    +2.02%
    ) also more than doubled, from just over 1 milllion shares to 2.4 million shares.

    Rosenstein lowered holdings of Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY
    Bristol-Myers Squibb Co
    BMY
    54.10
    +0.15%
    ) from 3.8 million to 716,000 shares. He also trimmed ConAgra Foods Inc. (CAG

    38.06
    +0.90%
    ) from 17.8 million to 6.4 million shares. There were a number of other lowered stakes as well, none of which were as significant.

    Finally, Rosenstein liquidated 20 positions in the first quarter. Among others, he eliminated positions in Dell Technologies Inc. (DVMT
    Dell Technologies Inc
    DVMT
    67.38

  • Dow Highlights Progress in Redefining the Role of Business in Society in 2016 Sustainability Report

    Business Wire Business WireMay 22, 2017Comment
    MIDLAND, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

    The Dow Chemical Company (DOW) today released its 2016 Sustainability Report, laying a solid foundation with strong first-year results since announcing its 2025 Sustainability Goals. Prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards Comprehensive Option (GRI 102-54), GRI is the most widely used framework for sustainability reporting used globally by businesses, governments and other organizations. The report highlights the successes of Dow’s commitment to redefine the role of business at its intersection with society.

    “Our 2025 Sustainability Goals are designed to do nothing less than help redefine the role of business in society,” said Andrew Liveris, chairman and chief executive officer. “By driving unprecedented collaborations, Dow is leading the way in developing societal blueprints that will advance the transition to a more sustainable society and a path to a better, more resilient and more profitable way of doing business.”

    Dow’s 2025 Sustainability Goals serve as the next chapter in the Company’s sustainability journey, in which it will take a leadership role in developing societal blueprints that integrate public policy solutions, science and technology, and value chain innovation to facilitate the transition to a more sustainable planet and society. Overall, in the first full year of Dow’s 10-year effort, Dow has already made exciting gains: piloting new business models to rethink waste, developing tools to recognize how natural ecosystems provide business value, and developing blueprints for low-carbon and livable cities.

    “Our 2025 Sustainability Goals harness Dow’s innovation strengths, global reach and the passion of our employees,” said Neil Hawkins, chief sustainability officer and corporate vice president, environment, health and safety. “These 10-year goals will deliver long-term value to Dow and sustainable, global solutions for our customers and society.”

    Just a few goal achievements from Dow’s first year:

    Leading the Blueprint: 100 dialogue sessions conducted. On track for having the first societal blueprint draft by the end of 2017.

    Delivering Breakthrough Innovations: Implemented a new generation of Sustainable Chemistry Index and developed business-specific 2025 Sustainability Goals.

    Advancing a Circular Economy: 20 projects in progress, including the Hefty® Energy Bag Project – a unique program designed to convert previously non-recycled plastics into energy – and our support to ongoing research with Ocean Conservancy to reduce marine debris.

    Valuing Nature: Collaborated with The Nature Conservancy to develop a suite of tools to help businesses place a value on nature in their decision processes. Identified more than $40 million worth of Valuing Nature Goal projects.

    The full 2016 Sustainability Report is available on Dow’s website.
