In the said letter, Miller Value Partners highlighted a few stocks and Chemours Co (NYSE:CC) is one of them. Chemours is a chemical company. Year-to-date, Chemours Co (NYSE:CC) stock lost 21.9% and on June 10th it had a closing price of $16.05. Here is what Miller Value Partners said:
"Chemours is another name that we’ve followed for many months. It’s a chemical company spun out of DuPont. It traded down from $40 a year ago to the mid-teens in February, mostly due to concerns about environmental liabilities and a down cycle in one of its businesses. A good quarter caused it to trade up to $20 before the market malaise took it to $7 at the lows. David Einhorn, the noted value investor, made great money on it after buying it at $3 and selling it at $57. He re-entered his position around $23-24 saying it baked in a good margin of safety. If it was good there, it must be fantastic at the current level of $10-11. We think it’s worth somewhere in the low $20’s. At 4x this year and 3x next year’s earnings, with a 9.5% dividend yield, we think you are getting a great deal on a leader in its markets."
