Money flow

ETF/Index ownership | Negative

ETF activity is negative. Over the last one-month, outflows of investor capital in ETFs holding UFS totaled $278 million. Additionally, the rate of outflows appears to be accelerating.

Economic sentiment

PMI by IHS Markit | Neutral

According to the latest IHS Markit Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) data, output in the Basic Materials sector is rising. The rate of growth is very strong relative to the trend shown over the past year, and is accelerating. However, the rate of expansion may not be sustainable over the coming months.

Credit worthiness

Credit default swap | Positive

The current level displays a positive indicator. Although UFS credit default swap spreads are rising, indicating the market's more negative perception of the company's credit worthiness, they remain among the lowest levels seen during the last three years.
